Day 2 in Miami


Friday was the day of Tim & Patty's wedding, so we were quite busy. Before leaving on the trip, I did a lot of research on places to visit and also for good restaurants. We knew, we wanted to find a authentic Cuban place because there is no better place to get Cuban food than in Miami. Thanks to the wonderful nesties from the Miami board, on TheNest.com, as they recommended the Cuban restaurant Versailles. We headed over there for lunch and had a great meal! The girls were right on about the restaurant!



The fried Yucca was really good, especially with the garlic cilantro sauce. Yummm!


David and I both got the Chicken Versailles: chicken marinated in mojo sauce and served with a lemon butter sauce, Moros rice and Fried Plantains




After, lunch we headed next door to their bakery. I got a mango moose that was amazing. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture! We all changed into our snazzy wedding clothes and headed over to the wedding which was at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. They had so many great touches and the one I loved the most was that Patty and her dad walked into the Star Wars theme song!



The sparklers farwell was super cute as well


Hopefully, tomorrow I will have time to blog the last two days of the trip!

I've been to Miami South Beach three times. I WISH someone would get married and invite me to a soiree! The plaintains are delicious! (came by nanette)

There are Versailles outside of LA? AWESOME!

Please tell me you've been to the So. Cal version. If not, we are soooo there!

The restaurant has a location in Culver City. I just love their liver and onions! And the black beans...hmmmm!

I have never been to one here in Ca. I am going to put it on our list to go there. The hubby will be excited to hear about it.
