Perhaps it’s because my hometown is so un-preppy (and also so un-wintery), but I’ve always held a fascination for plaids, tweed, snowy branches, rugby, bow-ties, and Ralph Lauren Ads.

So without further ado, a bit of un-Miami winter inspiration.

Big Pink, South Beach

Filed under: Miami

South Beach’s Big Pink boasts an enormous menu and an even bigger celebrity following.

Case in point:

Famous for buckets of fries and mini corn dogs, and featuring a huge TV Dinner served on a metal tray (everything from salisbury steak, to country fried chicken, to tacos – and of course, dessert), Big Pink seriously knows home cooking. And with pepto pink bugs driving around the beach, delivery is a cinch.

But I’m not there for the buckets of fried (generally speaking); I’m on the celebrity hunt. All of my Miami peers “bump into” Ludacris, Jennifer Lopez, Sean Combs (P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, whatever his name is), T.I., any number of Kardashians. I’m jealous.

Oh yeah, and the name helms the word “pink” – I had to go.

Sadly, I have never spotted a celebrity there … ever. Boo. But gawd, that food is good.

That Perfect Market: Epicure Miami Beach

Here in Miami, perfect food markets are few and far between.  The closest we get to a specialty market is Whole Foods – which by the way, was HUGE, when they first made their may to our shopping centers a few years ago.  But one Miami tradition that has continued to shine, Epicure Market.  Since 1945, this perfect little food market has had the best of meats, produce, a fab bakery, and prepared foods.

I go into Epicure with a clear head and a budget.  Though completely pricey, a container with an Epicure label does not sit in your refrigerator half empty, ever.  If you are ever in Miami Beach, you must go to Epicure – try the tuna and the matzoh ball soup.  You can thank me later.
