Despite it being now officially spring, it’s been cold (and snowy!) in Brooklyn this week, and the winter weather has us dreaming of our recent trip to Miami. Scrolling through the photos of sunshine and empanadas, we were reminded of another dish we’d spent much time with — ropa vieja. The dish is everywhere in Miami. It’s not surprising — it is, according to popular … Continue reading ropa vieja à la argentina.
We hopped down to Miami this past weekend for the wedding of an old friend and neighbor, with a side of alligators and art deco sunshine. Here are some images from our whirlwind two days (including a total of five trips into South Beach!)

This time, the (rickety, 15-passengar) van took us through Los Angeles, San Diego and Tucson, with some memorable moments both food and otherwise. The American southwest is lovely! West Coast transplants to NYC complain endlessly about the lack of good Mexican & … Continue reading la, sd + tus
