A Dinner of Eights: Eit Restaurant in Rome, Italy

Eit is a newly-opened restaurant in Rome from one-Michelin starred Chef Luigi Nastri. They don’t have a menu with traditional dishes listed but instead a list of 8 ingredients that the diners can choose from. Everything about the restaurant is about the number 8. Eight half seasons, 8 wine varieties for the wines and 8 tastes and flavors, even 8 tables.

The Sweet Side of Hilo, Hawaii

Guava, mango and lilikoi flavors are some of the traditional Hawaiian flavors used by a classically French trained chef in Hilo, Hawaii.  Baking with butter and squeezing fresh fruit juices are the heartbeat of the kitchen.

Brunching at Glass and Vine in Miami

Glass and Vine is located in Peacock Park in Coconut Grove. It was an ideal place, surrounded by lush vegetation, birds chirping in the trees, children playing in the park and a distant view of the bay. It was a beautiful day, with a mild wind wafting everywhere, slightly cloudy and not hot at all.
