Macaron Madness

By Caitlin Marino

Miami, amongst other U.S. cities, has recently developed an exciting interest in one of my favorite French delicacies – the macaron. Maybe because we crave to experience a piece of a nostalgic European trip or simply want to know what it would be like to taste true Parisian cuisine. Either way, I couldn’t be happier to see the macaron obsession make its way into Miami’s culinary scene. Le Macaron is leading the French pastry expansion across South Florida and recently opened its sixth location in a charming kiosk station in Dolphin Mall’s food court. I headed over on a recent Monday to check it out and reward myself for making it through the worst day of the week.

Kona Grill – Your Destination for International Sushi Day

By Caitlin Marino

Although originally starting as just a Facebook fan page where sushi lovers could rejoice, International Sushi Day has grown to become a total foodie phenomenon and is annually celebrated on June 18 (…as if we needed another excuse to indulge in our favorite Japanese cuisine.) While Doral may not necessarily be the first place you think of when strategizing on top sushi destinations, the city’s recent (and developing) culinary boom brings some new, affordable and enticing options. As my first contributing gig, I ventured over to Kona Grill located in the newly developed dining area of Dolphin Mall to get a head start on the celebratory festivities. Opening their first location in South Florida, Kona Grill is already an established brand throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and boasts an incredibly robust menu to satisfy the pallets of all dining guests, from sushi fans to those who might prefer a more traditional American meal.

Brio Tuscan Grille – Suburban Delight

We’re officially hot and heavy into the holiday season, which probably means you’ve either visited a mall or will do so in the next few weeks. I did just that a few weeks ago and was brave enough to venture to Dolphin Mall. I’d heard word that the mall had just undergone some renovations but it wasn’t until I was done checking off a few things on my list that I began to explore and found that the additions included a slew of restaurants one of which we had heard much about but never bothered looking into, Brio Tuscan Grille.
