private table for one
Walking down Collins in Miami Beach a little early for lunch I found a sidewalke cafe, Olivos, with a table for one under its own umbrella. I had the breakfast special of three Empanadas [one beef, two chicken] and salad. Also added a Jugo Natural de Naranja [fresh OJ] and a Cafecito Cortado.
A few days later I went there for lunch and ordered the simplest sandwich on the menu, Milanesa de Carne, with a side of fries. The sandwich was huge on a big round thin toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and mayo. The fries were great. Another OJ and another Cafecito.
The winner was the big ol' sandwich.
blognote: Went back in December, 2005 and the sandwich wasn't as good. The juicer was broken and the traffic sucked!
