These days every restaurant has crab cakes on their menu. But once you find a good one you’ll remember it. This delicious starter will surely be a start to a great dinner. With apple slaw, Prosecco vinaigrette and remoulade is wonderful. The restaurant has great seating for big groups and the space is comfortable. The service was very personal and it felt good for a change. Don’t forget to try the Lobster Mac & Cheese! Pilar Local Restaurant and Bar is located in Aventura.
Not time for brunch yet but a Bellini never fails to refresh my morning breakfast! This fragrant drink was created between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani. Bellini was the name he gave it because of Giovanni Bellini (15th-century Venetian artist) who had a painting of a saint wearing a toga of the same color! I’m glad inspiration is all around us. Salute.
