A basketball wife, mom, actor, and TV producer, this stylish Miamian has added restauranteur to her resume. Here’s a rundown of where the co-owner of new South Miami organic restaurant Grown likes to eat, shop, play and chill.
THE SEXY “For lingerie, bridal-shower gifts, a new swimsuit and beach wrap, or Tocca & Voluspa candles, my must-visit shop is Eberjey in South Miami.” Tocca Bianca body wash, $18. Eberjey, 7209 SW 57th Court, South Miami; 305-763-8455; eberjey.
THE SHIRT “My favorite Miami-based store for gifts, for an energetic pick-me-up, or to window-shop with our daughter, Tierra, is PeaceLoveWorld. I love their clothing so much that we decided to do a ‘Grown x PeaceLoveWorld’ collaboration with adorable, food-related apparel to sell at the restaurant!” $42. PeaceLoveWorld, 225 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables; 305-444-5120; peaceloveworld.com.
THE BITE “Besides Grown, of course, my favorite place to eat is Earls Kitchen & Bar. While we were buiding Grown, our ‘core four’ team ate at Earls every week. The general manager, Nes, and his team are extraordinary, and the food is delicious. I definitely recommend trying the crospy Cambodian shrimp or chicken tacos.” Earls Kitchen + Bar, 7535 N. Kendall Drive, Miami; 305-667-1786; earls.ca.
