♦ It is onwards and upwards for Lesley Abravanel, who, after three years providing a healthy dose of wit for Eater Miami, is going to be consolidating her W-2s, as she will be food blogging for Miami.com and the Miami Herald. Lesley already provides the fodder for Scene in the Tropics, a Herald blog. Congrats to Lesley.
♦ Not really restaurant news but if you’re interested in what the Design District will look like in a couple of years, look no further than Suntanned Mumford’s blog post, where he runs through what to expect from the influx of luxury retailers.
♦ If the measure of a good blog post is that it starts a conversation and challenges you to think, then Chadzilla hits a homerun with his latest post on Sysco-bashing and whether it is deserved (spoiler alert: he says it’s not). Several chefs and industry folks have posted comments, another sign of a well-written blog post.
