Ryan Lochte Dines at Cafe Martorano, Parties at Shore Club (Pictures)

Olympian Ryan Lochte was in South Florida this past weekend to film scenes for his new E! reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?

Although the swimming sensation and 11-time medalist seemed to be less than happy with the weekend's cool breezes, Lochte managed to enjoy himself with a visit to one of his favorite restaurants before checking out the South Beach party scene.

Lochte flew in to South Florida this past Thursday and tweeted this message about the weather:

On Saturday, the Olympian dined at Cafe Martorano, where he and several friends enjoyed an Italian feast of tuna carpaccio, stuffed hot peppers, linguine and clams, and lobster française. Of course, there were meatballs at the table as well. The gold medalist also snagged one of Martorano's Yo Cuz T-shirts as a souvenir.

On Sunday, Ryan Lochte headed over to the afternoon Sun-Daze pool party at the Shore Club on South Beach, where he finally found the warm sun he was seeking.

Check out his beach body on Perez Hilton's FitPerez site, and check out the show, which premieres Sunday, April 21 at 10 p.m. on E!.
