We were down in South beach...wanted to find a place for dinner. It was "Art Deco Weekend" and things were crazy. Alot of the Hotels and Restaurants along Ocean Drive extended their dining areas out into the street (since it was closed for the festival).
We had a lot of maître d's out in the street hammering away for our business shouting "20% off everything on the menu", "30% off everything on the menu!".....finally we got snagged by the Colony Hotel gal with "50% off everything on the menu!!!" Fine...sounds like a good deal. The food was ok. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about. The service was ok but uninspired. The men's bathroom looks like it was a converted broom closet...you literally need to duck your head for the low ceiling while peeing.
I had a Cuban Sandwich; not bad.... My wife had soup & salad; just ok.
We didn't say in the hotel but looks like an glamorized American Pensione for Euro Travelers.
Don't get me wrong...I like South Beach....but this meal was nothing to get excited about.
