Driving down to North Miami was a treat when I was invited to a special VIP blogger dinner by local bloggers and foodies, Shaina Wizov from Take A Bite Out Of Boca and Jill Pavlov from Jilly from Philly. They fell in love with the food at Juniper On The Water in Hallandale, Florida and couldn’t wait to invite our foodie group.
With so much water in South Florida, it’s hard to believe there are not many restaurants that have a view and the food is amazing.
Juniper On The Water is one of those restaurants that has great food plus the view. This airy, contemporary eatery has a water-view deck with seating that overlooks the intracoastal water way. Mediterranean-inspired seafood and dishes are what makes of the Juniper On The Water menu.
The evening started with catching up on the latest blog post or app we should all try. Champagne was served all round a farmer style table with beach decor. It was the perfect start to the meal I was about to be served.

The Connecticut Blue Point Oyster served with a horseradish cocktail sauce was easily devoured.
The Head on Prawn dish was served with a Romesco Sauce and a side of charred lemon. You take the head off and suck out the head first for all the flavor and peel away the shell. I could have eaten the entire dish by myself, but I knew there was more to come.
Lamb is one of my favorite meat dishes. The Lamb Shank over Polenta was tender and moist. The polenta was a nice change from mashed potatoes and the gravy made the dish.
It was National French Fry day and the chef blessed us with bowls of his out of this world truffle fries. There wasn’t one left when we were done!
This salad was too pretty to eat, but I twisted my own arm and did. This field green salad had a perimeter of oranges along with crumbled feta cheese.
The live music from Bredan O’Hara was cool and gave the restaurant and chill vibe. It was a perfect dinner and a perfect night with my blogger friends.
