Happy New Year
from our family to yours! This year in the Chinese 2005 calendar we are the year of the Rooster. The Chinese calendar dates back centuries before the Julian calendar we use at present day. It measures time based on the astronomical observations of the movement of the sun, moon and stars, and is highly accurate. And one more thing the first day of New Year's in China is February 9, 2005.

Zagat Survey 2005

Thank you again to our loyal guests for recognizing Chef Allen’s No. 1 for food and service. This is what the ZAGAT SURVEY 2005 had to say this year…

“Not just a meal, but an amazing experience”, this “bastion of culinary excellence” in Aventura is again Miami’s No. 1 for Food (and now tops for service too). Thanks to the artistry of Chef-owner Allen Susser, whose New World cuisine is “extraordinary”, “exciting” and ‘delicious”, matched by “excellent wines”; the staff is “impeccable” and “intelligent”, and with monthly art exhibits, the “great atmosphere’ is ‘worth a return trip” in itself; P.S. “the tasting menus are a good way to sample lots of flavors.”
