Jodi Mailander Farrell gives South Miami's Casabe 305 two and a half stars in this week's review. Though Farrell wasn't too impressed by the ambience or the staff, she did praise the dishes and the fact that the food didn't leave her "overstuffed".
"Casabe 305 Bistro chef-owner Diego Texera doesn't just want you to enjoy his food. He wants you to feel good and sleep well after you've eaten it, too. Texera, who studied and ran a center for macrobiotics in his native Venezuela, cooks healthy Latin fusion dishes that radiate spa-like simplicity."
She adds, "Casabe's plates appear sparse, in keeping with the macrobiotic mindset that discourages overeating. And it's true, you do leave feeling comfortably satiated."[Miami.com]
Zachary Fagenson thinks Voodka in Fort Lauderdale is more about "style" than "substance". Though the décor is lavish and the entertainment is fun, Fagenson did not think much of the cuisine. [CPC]
