Anthony Bourdain orders from Dim Ssam a Gogo.
Miami was a star in 2011. The past year saw many major national food-related shows film here in our fair city. Who could blame them? Between our thriving and ever-growing food scene and our seemingly endless miles of sandy beaches, palm trees, and ice-cream-colored art deco buildings, Miami is a producer's dream.

Anthony Bourdain's The Layover
In the sweltering heat of Miami in July, a buzz filled the warm, humid air. Tony Bourdain was in town to film an episode of his new show, The Layover. We diligently sought out info after his original itinerary was scrapped due to a leak. Where did Bourdain finally go? La Perrada de Edgar,
Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, Mac's Club Deuce, Garcia's Seafood,
and a food truck roundup (where he ate at Dim Ssam a Gogo and
Grillmaster Cafe). Also in the episode, Tony gets a tat and visits Stiltsville before swilling champagne straight from the bottle at a
suite at the Raleigh Hotel.
