I should have known back then that I was the lucky one, that's why ALL my friends wanted to eat at OUR house. Regardless of what school I went to (and I attended 9) my mom's cooking was always the talk of the town. Some of my friends, even as early as 4th grade would ask what my mom made for the dinner the night before. So needless to say, my mom knows food! However, she doesn't go to many fancy hyped-up restaurants because she traditionally walks away thinking the service was not good enough (this is super important to her) and that she can make a better dish at home for way less.
So when I planned for my mom, sister and I to have our "last super" before my sister's son, Nicolas, was born I carefully chose the one place in Miami that I prayed would not disappoint "Tere" aka, my mom.
|Michael Schwartz's Genuine Food & Drink was our choice!|
|Michael's is in the super hip Design District in Miami.|
|My sister ordered the greek farro salad with french feta. Light & tangy.|
|I threw myself in the most delightful wood oven roasted double yolk farm egg dish with|
cave aged gruyere, roasted tomato, chives and a sourdough crostini. Total comfort food!
|For me it was the grilled pork lion with pear chutney and the made to perfection |
wood roasted brussels sprouts with pancetta & lemon aioli.
Let us not forget the yummy potato chips with pan fried onion dip.
|Roberto with mom. |
Mom even said that she would go out to eat more often if Roberto could come along!
|This was my dessert, "Pie in a Jar" = AMAZING!|
|My sister's decadent Granny Smith Apple & Feta Panini with mini caramel ice cream sundae|
|Final piece de resistance... the latte|
But alas the food was too good to leave anything behind! We will all have to go back soon! My mother is anxiously awaiting her return.
