Coral Gables-short report

Stayed in the Gables a few days for a conference.

Fri. Dinner at Xixon. I love this place. Spanish tapas that's authentic, wonderful and reasonable. What's not to like
Sat. Dinner at Micheal's GFD. Not thrilled as some items were not cooked properly. See comments on is MGFD slipping.
Sun. Dinner at Matsuri. This was the best sushi I've ever had. The fish was fresh and melted in your mouth. The dishes were creative and displayed very well. Prices were in the same ball park as any other corner sushi bar. Great bang for the buck at Matsuri. This is a place I will return to.
Mon. Brunch and take out back at Xixon. I said I love this place.

      Matsuri is very good well priced, and possibly the best in miami, but let's not get carried away.
