    Aloo? Bless You

    There aren't enough good Indian restaurants in South Florida to satisfy anybody with a passion for the complex, hearty cuisine of the land of the tiger. So when I got word that a tiny caf serving aloo, paneer, pakoras, and real tandoori-baked breads...

    The Angel Has Landed - Serafina ups the ante in Victoria Park

    Serafina means "angel" in Italian, and I guess with the right sky-blue backdrop, a little otherworldly lighting, and the wistful notes of a discrete off-stage choir, you could mistake Shari Woods for one of those heavenly creatures. That is, if angel...

    Too Darned Hot

    My thermometer may read 103, but I've found a foolproof way to console myself. Summer's a great time to be a glutton. Everybody's offering deals. Those frigid restaurants I was priced out of in January are suddenly wooing me like lovesick suitors wit...

    The Big Cantonese-y - This is a shopping center for epicures

    An old strip mall with a gun range, a temp agency, and an iffy convenience store isn't the stuff of travel posters or exotic tales. But the Oakland Shopping Center (4101-4351 N. State Road 7, Lauderdale Lakes) has enough Chinese and Vietnamese-orient...

    Wine of the Times

    If you've ever tried to order wine from a Napa vintner, you know that the United States is not a free country when it comes to oenophiliacs. In Florida, wine lovers are second-class citizens, denied our God-given access to the Syrahs, Pinots, and Cab...

    Seafood Soup for the Soul - At Kiko, the omurice is nice, the sushi is dandy, and the prices are nicer

    The late Japanese director Juzo Itami opened his famous '80s film Tampopo with an amusing disquisition on the proper way to eat soup. A Zen master's acolyte wants to know: When faced with the bowl -- soup first? Or noodles? "First, observe the whol...

    We'll Always Have Paris - Whether we like it or not...

    I've been to Paris in August, and it was no picnic. The place is a wasteland of shuttered boulangeries and vacant park benches. The entire country takes a national break in late summer, and you have to be a serious loser to be stuck at some Eiffel To...

    Rich Dish

    If you can afford to dine at Caf L'Europe (331 S. County Rd., Palm Beach, 561-655-4020) on a regular basis, it's unlikely you're sweltering through an August in SoFla. Maybe Norbert and Lidia Goldner, who own this 25-year-old goldmine, know that. To...

    Chardees Cheek to Cheek - Old-fashioned passion in the gay mecca

    "You know what would be perfect?" my significant other mused recently. "One of those places where you get all dressed up and go eat lobster tails and prime rib. And there's a big band playing so you can dance after dinner." "Supper clubs," I said. ...

    True to Their Word - A Tuscan couple mean it when they say "Saporissimo!"

    The guy looming over our table would be scary if you met him in some pitch-black alley at 4 a.m. For one thing, he's big. Pitted face, great bushy brows. For another, he's holding something heavy in his hands. "Excuse me," he says. "My English. Is no...

    Thai Me Up, Thai Me Down - Two restaurants where yum nua and tom yum are yum-yum

    I remember my first, mind-altering bite of Thai cooking with pristine clarity. From a culinary standpoint, I'd been sound asleep: That mouthful woke me up like the sloppy kiss of Prince Charming. I was working for a publisher in London; my parents ha...

    Sweet Paya

    The first time I went to Nirala Sweets BBQ, I looked past the confections lining the case on the back wall and thought, No, first I'll have lunch. I scanned the short menu of Pakistani dishes and asked about the things I was unfamiliar with. Fish cur...

    Light the Fusion - Out of the frying pan, into North Lauderdale

    Keeping Broward in Brewskis

    The World According to Vico - Back to basics for a long-time favorite

    You can have too much of a good thing. But not of the agnolotti rosa, a dish you could probably savor indefinitely: those silky, silver-dollar-sized rounds of homemade ravioli, scalloped edges folded around a dab of spinach and ricotta, tossed in ...

    Old-fashioned Passion

    One thing you can say about Columbia Restaurant (651 Okeechobee Blvd. West Palm Beach, 561-820-9373): It's freaking ancient. If this place were human, we'd be wheeling it out for Fourth of July parades and interviewing it on NPR. The original Columbi...

    Oh So Sweet - Why we still flock to Victoria Park

    The Victoria Park neighborhood is eerily serene by Fort Lauderdale standards. Maybe it's all that tropical foliage, surreal as a rainforest painting by Rousseau. A family of peacocks roosts in the black olive trees; pristinely renovated bungalows ret...
