Last-Minute Gifts from Sushi Samba and Schnebly's
|Some better ideas than your Christmas palm tree.|
For the rest of us scrambling to check off the names from our list, South Florida restaurants have a variety of gifts that make the perfect present or stocking stuffer for that food-obsessed friend. These might even work for those who care little about food!
When it comes to reading, writing or learning a foreign language the old adage is get kids started young. There's no reason that shouldn't apply to sushi.

They're also a step up from the rubber band trick many Japanese restaurants use to make chopsticks easy for kids to use.
Local on local on local. Michael Schwartz's growing restaurant empire released its namesake ale, brewed by Alabama-based Back Forty Brewery, earlier this year and its now served in restaurants around town. A gift idea: Forage a 50-foot salad of greens from your neighbor's backyard and pair it with a 22-ounce bottle ($11) for your friends or family.
