PM Buenos Aires Fish and Steak House; Architecturally Interesting, Food Not So Much

The Good:

The sides-We had the mushrooms, asparagus, and the cream spinach-all were excellent.

The deserts- Crème Brulet, Cheesecake and Chocolatismo.

The Bad:

The main courses were expensive ($40) and à la carte. Fish was somewhat bland.  The NY Strip was good, cooked to order, but it wasn’t a $40 piece of meat.

The Ugly:

Service was exceptionally slow.  From the start we had to ask for the menus and then we had to repeatedly beg for the check.

Downtown Retail Update

La Provence bakery and cafe is set to open its third location in the central business district on Monday. Their new store is located near the Flagler and SE 3rd Avenue intersection-across the street from Tre.

Two weeks ago Hungry Hippos Subs opened at 40 NE First Avenue. The owner told me today that so far business has been pretty good-another very encouraging sign for the CBD.
