If you’ve seen most of my videos you’ll see that I have a lot of friends that work at a Tampa radio station 102.5 The Bone and during an appearance I did the owner of a restaurant heard that I did restaurant features and invited me to his place in Pass-A-Grille Beach which is part of St Pete Beach and is AMAZING! The restaurant is Gennaro’s and all I can say is WOW! Even my Sicilian grandma would be impressed!
I invited my girl Heidi or “Bootyfett” as she is known at the station on the Bone Daily Rewind Show (BDRS) and we were absolutely hooked up by Marcello the owner who cooked for us!
The video says more than I could possibly say here in words.
If you are ever in the area do NOT miss a chance for a meal at Gennaro’s!
There are the ABC Islands in the southern Caribbean called the Netherlands Antilles which are part of the Dutch Kingdom. I recently returned to Curacao and to my favorite restaurant there, Fishalicious. Last time I was there I could only take you to the front entrance but this time I took my cameras inside to share this experience with you!
This might be the absolute best seafood experience I have ever had. I have had some amazing fish in Fiji and the Pacific Northwest as well as incredible tuna and red snapper here in Florida, but this was an experience like none I have ever had.
My special guest is my good friend Romy whom I met during my previous trip there in 2012. We enjoyed champagne and oysters and several amazing surprise dishes that they made special for us!
I hope you enjoy and if you find yourself looking for a tropical place to go I highly suggest Curacao and if you go you MUST have at least one meal at Fishalicious!
About a month ago I was driving across town in traffic and turned on the radio and heard this radio show called “The Cat Named Mo Show” on 102.5 the Bone. The host was funny and made me laugh which radio personalities rarely do. So I thought “he’d be great to have as a guest on the show!” So I hit him up on Twitter and the rest is now history! What a great guest and wonderful nice and genuinely funny human being! I laughed so hard my face hurt when we left!
So now to the amazing restaurant….
If you happen to follow me on Twitter @dinnermariah then you know that one of my favorite restaurants is Flamestone Grill in Tampa. I am there at least once a week and have yet to have a disappointing meal. Everything has been excellent from the appetizers to the desserts.
The Sunday Brunch is ridiculous as well. They have a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar which suits me perfectly!
One of the best parts of going there is the dining experience from the table-side guacamole to the incredible S’Mores that you roast the marshmallows yourself at the table and I cannot leave out one of the best servers ever, Megan. Always perfectly attentive and adorable as hell as you can see. I won’t go unless she’s working and that is rare for me!
So if you find yourself in Tampa or headed there I cannot recommend a place more highly than Flamestone Grill.
Have the scallops for an appetizer, have a drink at the beautiful bar, get a brick oven flatbread pizza and make sure to ask for Megan!
Oh yeah, tell them Mariah sent ya!
I love Asian food so when I saw this recipe on Gordon Ramsay’s channel poaching salmon in Miso soup I knew I had to try it and add my own little twist to it!
I used portobello mushrooms and didn’t use the brocolli or the chilis but it turned out amazing!
What You’ll Need;
Miso Soup Mix
Seafood Broth or Fish Stock
Bok Choi Cabbage
Total cook time is around 12 minutes including the ramen noodles.
Super easy and very healthy and tasty!
Two of the best things you can put in your mouth are sausage and beer, so why not combine them? I said two OF the best so don’t get jumpy!
Seriously, cooking in beer is a definite way to step it up a notch and these turned out soooo delicious!
make sure you get quality sausage! find a butcher or ask the meat counter at your supermarket to hook you up! and of course, use a good quality beer! Don’t put some Milwaukee’s Best in there or Bush or something cheap! Use a beer you’d actually drink!
