My food journey through South Beach and Palm Beach Hotels

I recently returned from a quick trip to Miami South Beach and Palm Beach. I was on business and did not have much time to venture out from the hotels. That does not mean I did not have some fabulous food INSIDE the hotels. Here is a picture diary of my yummy meals.

First stop was The Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key for lunch at Azul.

Crunchy Cashew Chicken Salad - Asian greens, napa cabbage, grilled satay chicken, strawberries, glazed cashews, topped off with a citrus ginger & soy vinegarette

Next stop was Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. We had frozen mojitos with the famous bartender Geno at Dune. Followed by shrimp nachos and the most fabulous guacamole made table side at La Cantina.

We retired for the night at Turnberry Isle in Aventura and treated ourselves to a late night snack in The Lobby Lounge.

The next morning we met at The Setai for the  breakfast buffet at The Restaurant. The food was wonderful but my favorite part was sitting in the outside courtyard to eat it all.

Later in the day we toured the Ritz-Carlton South Beach and had lunch at Bistro One LR. Probably some of the best shrimp or fish tacos I have ever had!

Next stop was The Breakers in Palm Beach. We had drinks and tapas at HMF. Did not get a picture of the fabulous fennel sausage and wild mushroom pizzette since we were starving and it looked too good to resist.

We spent the night and I have to mention the amazing chocolate creation we found waiting in our room!

Our last meal in the area before boarding the plane was at Four Seasons Palm Beach sitting right along the beach at Atlantic Bar and Grill.
