Travel is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but it’s not exactly the most affordable. With Area 31, though, you can experience cuisine from all around the world without breaking the bank. Last month, the restaurant debuted a new monthly series — Menu Trotting With Chef Wolfgang Birk — that highlights a specific region’s fare for an entire week. At $55 (and $20 for an optional wine tasting), it’s a steal.
After a short hiatus, TiramesU is back on the beach. The Italian restaurant has relocated to the South of Fifth neighborhood, which is on the opposite side of town from their last Lincoln Road location. While we weren’t familiar with the original iterations of the eatery — the restaurant’s first opened on Fifth and Ocean — we became very familiar with the new one at a recent media dinner. It was an evening to remember.
