Tired from a morning of working on blogs, my companion and I went to "gigi" in Miami for a quick bite to eat. I knew I was hungry and wanted to try something new, and as a resident of Miami, my companion said she had heard great things about "gigi".

I was not to be disappointed. The concepts are fresh and small plates for sharing, and they are dead on. The menu is a two-sided 8 1/2 x 5 piece of heavy stock paper with the alcohol menu on one side and the lunch offerings on the other. We ordered six different dishes to share, and were impressed by every one. I would have to say that the Heirloom Tomato salad was my favorite; I would have eaten rocks if they had been dressed by the asian dressing on those tomatoes! We sampled the tandoori chicken buns, the local green salad, the fresh tuna salad, the shitake salad snack and the florida fish, which happened to be cobia, and everything was fabulous. I would go back, again and again.

The only negative thing I would comment on, and I had to really search for it, was the acoustics could be better. While the interior design is inventive, it was very loud, even though the restaurant wasn't full. Service was great, and I can't wait to try the key lime pie I brought home with me!
