Traymore by COMO

Remember that amazing little holiday we took to Turks and Caicos? Well the hotel chain COMO decided to be kind to us and open the Metropolitan Hotel in Miami. Half of the Caicos Crew went for a stay-cation when it opened, and totally recommended it. This week was a quiet week in the office for Doug and I so we decided to head over to South beach for lunch and we thought COMO was the place to go. 

This place is nestled in-between two bigger buildings and is easy to miss if you don't realize the building still has the Traymore sign on it. This is due to it being a historical building so they cannot change it to the Metropolitan. Anyway, once you stumble upon this gloriously white haven you know you have arrived. It was a Wednesday afternoon so the restaurant was empty. We told our server of our amazing experience in Parrot Cay and we reminisced at its wonders. 

COMO hotels are big on their Shambhala menu which is a totally natural and organic menu with a selection of smoothies to choose from. Doug and I chose the Muscle Milk.

 Muscle Milk: Banana, young coconut water, coconut meat, cinnamon, almond milk, flax seed, dates and cacao beans.

They took a while to come out but that is because they literally make it all to order. No pre mixed saches to stick in a blender. They are not even that cold because its so natural that adding ice would alter it. Doug drank his in literally 2 minutes!!!

Fried Fish

 Roasted New Potatos

Doug said it was as good as any Gordon Ramsay meal he's had! and he LOVES Ramsey.

"Ceaser Salad"

We wanted a lighter lunch so we didn't eat much. However what we ate was SO delicious. On top of good it was good for you. When you leave a restaurant satisfied yet not uncomfortable it is a plus. 

I totally recommend this as a lunch place on a nice day because it is such a fresh place to relax in the shade and enjoy the breeze. I will definitely go back and try it our for dinner though. I love love love this place.

We got a little tour of the hotel. Check out this view!

 The top pool deck was under construction still so the bed is a little naked =) 

This Hotel hits the spot. COMO keeps its zen vibe amongst the crazy Miami.
