Work Hard. Play Hard. I enjoy dining out with my family. In fact we’ve become regulars at quite a few local’s venues in Boca Raton and other posh establishments throughout Palm Beach County. We still drive down for an impromptu visit to our faves in Key Largo and Tavernier. My husband and I enjoy trying out new up and coming restaurants and lounges up and down the southeastern Florida coastline- all the while making note of amazing venues that would be perfect for our clients. When retail therapy in necessary you’ll bump into me in East Boca at Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place, Town Center and Boca Center- where Raul and I frequent happy hour and social events there as often as we can get away for adult time.
Palm Beach Wine and Food Festival, Taste of Brickell Food & Wine Festival, Key Largo Food & Wine Festival and the Taste of The Grove… Just to name a few. Try to keep me away! There’s something to be said about savoring delicate treats and experimenting with new wines and spirits in the open- air beneath Florida’s glorious sunshine that makes me a feen for epicurean expos. Raul and I go to every one of these we can and fill our calendar with- sometimes with our daughter in tow! We enjoy attending epicurean social events and planning date nights with openings of new restaurants throughout Palm Beach County.
Finding new gems, revisiting local hot spots and marking our own favorites is such great fun!
