Sarah John Afana  Explorer of art, food & sunshine, mostly from the surface of a plate or the well of a martini glass.

We arrived with enormous anticipation to @shukanyc, ordered all the dishes that are raved about (do NOT skip the Fried #Halloumi), and ate like savages until we couldn’t believe how full we were. 🍽
Get there now for the wonderfully layered “Spring Salad” with Freekah, Asparagus, Dandelion Greens and Preserved Lemons. Also - ALL the Dips including House Made #Labne & Beet Hummus. And for a hearty main, ask for the Scallop #Shakshuka sparked with the meatiest Bouchot #Mussels. #DinnerWithFriends@jenalidon @judithchoate @threemoments

Because it’s a summer holiday weekend and this California Gurl is missing her grill.
First stop • @dinosaur_bbq in Harlem with ribs & #BBQ chicken that hit all the flavor buttons.

Asking a local never paid off better than it did this weekend in #PuntaCana as the team from @OlympusTours delivered Dominican food 🥘 I can’t wait to go back for. @bachatarosapc’s version of #CaribbeanCuisine surprised & satisfied in every dish.

A happy find at @27restaurant in #Miami 🌴 Promising a menu layered with global inspirations each dish is packed with flavor.
My personal fave is the Smoked #Eggplant served on a creamy bed of #Tahini, or maybe it’s Gabe’s #Arepa Platter with #RojaVieja 🍽 Looking forward to trying the latest from the @brokenshaker team just open in #NYC.

I know, I should just move to Hawaii if I’m going to spend my days in #NYC looking for #Poke, but @yongkangstreetnyc’s Spicy Tuna Rice Bowl satisfied that craving this week. An easy stop at the underground @turnstylenyc at #ColumbusCircle and all the flavors are found.

With over 20,000 trees in @centralparknyc - it’s easy to find one to sit under and ignore the stranger next to you.

Puerto Aventuras • a gated community just south of Playa Del Carmen as laid back as it gets. Close to Mayan Ruins, cenotes and an abundance of activities. 🐟🐠🐬
Go deep sea fishing, swim, snorkel and dive in the crystal clear waters.
