My sister and I are slightly obsessed- okay, my sister is obsessed and I just love her- with Diners, Dive-ins, and Drives. Whenever deciding on a restaurant in a new place, Emilie always tried to find a Triple-D restaurant. I don’t get it either.
When she came to move me into school, I knew we would have to go to Whisk, which she had recently seen on a Triple-D re-run. And, I’m really glad we did.
Whisk is located in South Miami and offers southern-style food with an upscale feel. Walking in, one of the first things that catch the eye is the open kitchen and a group tables. The open kitchen lets you see what is going on in the kitchen, and the group seating is a pretty cool idea if you’re going out to eat alone or with a small group. They also have individual tables, however I personally like the idea of being able to sit and converse with complete strangers during lunch – who doesn’t like making new friends?
The food here is to die for. So I went on a lunch date with my wonderful sister who dealt with a me on a 20 hour drive down to Miami (#burkedoesroadtrip on instagram, if you want to follow a little of our adventure) so we definitely wanted to treat ourselves and this was the perfect choice. From the mason jar glasses to the attentive wait-staff , walking into Whisk was definitely a great decision.
Fried Green Tomatoes
Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Bacon Wrapped, Gorgonzola Stuffed, Medjool Dates (4)
Sea Scallop Special
The Fried Green Tomatoes were perfectly coated on the outside and had a great crunch while the tomatoes were not soggy and held their consistency well, however they did fall a little flat. There was definitely a flavor element missing in this dish. It needed something light to contrast how heavy the dish was from the breading and frying.
Overall, the food was great. The Brussels Sprouts and Dates are definitely MUST-HAVES. And the company was great too.
