The paté sandwich with Dijon on crusty bread at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is pretty amazing.
My favorite dish at Area 31 is definitely the jumbo lump crab salad over spicy seared watermelon—it’s all things delicious, with spicy vs sweet, hot vs cold.

I recommend the 60-minute revitalizing fusion Massage at Exhale Spa. Getting pampered at the spa brings me literally “back to life”.
Join me Thursday mornings at 6.30am and come with me for a 2.5 miles run around our beautiful Brickell Key Island.
