Meat Market- Lincoln Road
Wow! Very impressed with every aspect of the recently opened Meat Market on Lincoln Road. This could be my new favorite place on South Beach. They did a great job renovating/updating the old Pacific Time spot and it is very sharp looking. The have a nice bar area up front which made the wait for our table a non-issue. The model hostesses didn't hurt either...
I started with the kobe beef slider duo with bacon, white chedder & foie gras, mango mustard and caramelized onions. They were extremely tasty. After devouring both I assumed they would be the winner of the night but I was wrong. The kobe skirt steak was even better. It was cooked perfectly, tender and packed with flavor. It was perfect.
I didn't try them but the white truffle kobe tar tar and buffalo mozzarella also received raves at the table.
This place is a great addition to South Beach and should be a winner. If you are looking for great food in a fun/lively SoBe setting I would highly recommend Meat Market
Looking forward to going back
MEAT MARKET MIAMI

Survivor week 16
This is an interesting week. Zona on the road, heading east to NE who are battling for their playoff lives. I like the Pats in this spot.
As weekly readers know, I always recommend against taking a road team and division rival games. However, this week I really can't see Washington beating Philly. I would still avoid unless you have no other options at this stage.
San Fran heads to St. Louis. Normally I would steer you away from this one too but San Fran is a different team under Mike Singeltary and should win this one by a TD+
Best play on the board for survivor this week has to be Denver at home against Buffalo.
Second best is Tampa at home against the Chargers. Norv blows.
