Margaritaville coming to Cleveland Flats

From The Plain Dealer: “Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville to take over Toby Keith spot in Cleveland Flats

No more wasting away. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is coming to the Cleveland Flats.

The bar and restaurant chain will move into the 20,000-square-foot building on the corner of Front Avenue and West 11th Street, in the Flats East Bank. The space was originally supposed to house Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill.

Named after Buffett’s iconic ode to booze-induced escape, Margaritaville will feature a full-service restaurant, multiple bars, a retail store and a performance stage for live entertainment. It will boast an island theme and a casual menu that pairs entrees such as beach tacos, jambalaya, fried chicken and steaks with tropical elixirs and, of course, a wide range of margaritas. And, yes, it will also serve the “Cheeseburger in Paradise” – Margaritaville’s signature burger named after Buffett’s 1978 hit.

Margaritaville is expected to open in late 2016.

LuLu’s Kitchen: A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life

Jimmy Buffett’s sister Lucy has a new edition of her cookbook out called “LuLu’s Kitchen: A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life: A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life” and it is now available at Amazon.com.

Lucy Buffett grew up in Mobile, Ala. When she was 10, she started cooking in her grandma’s kitchen in Pascagoula, Miss. Now she owns an insanely popular restaurant called LuLu’s in Gulf Shores, Ala., where there’s often a two-hour wait with a line out the door.

Her new cookbook is titled, “LuLu’s Kitchen: A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life.”

So I asked, “What exactly is Gulf Coast cuisine? What do you people eat over there?”

Buffett laughed. “It’s fried seafood and gumbo, baby! It’s Southern, but it’s Coastal Southern.” she said. “It’s all about fried shrimp and fried fish and fritters and oysters. It’s the food of my family and my culture.”

Buffett only serves seafood from the Gulf of Mexico. No farm-raised shrimp from China here.

She’s Jimmy Buffett’s little sister. The “Margaritaville” legend gave her the nickname “LuLu” when they were kids. She spent years cooking in restaurants in New York and Los Angeles before moving back to sweet home Alabama and opening her first dive burger joint at age 46.

This book originally was published in 2007 with the title “Crazy Sista Cooking: Cuisine and Conversation.”

Savannah reveals her favorite bohemian escapes

From the New York Post: “Jimmy Buffett’s daughter is a total Miami boho babe

Savannah Buffett grew up hopscotching between New York, Nashville, Aspen, Malibu and St. Barts.

But the daughter of singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett finally laid down roots in palm-fringed Miami, where 10 years ago she bought a charming canal-front bungalow in emerging MiMo, a historic corridor on Biscayne Boulevard.

The once-dilapidated neighborhood, named for its post-World War II Miami Modernist architecture, has undergone a remarkable renaissance in recent years. As an investor in the district’s happening new bar the Anderson, Buffett is part of that revival.

“To see the change has been incredible,” says the 36-year-old creative consultant, DJ and radio personality, who lives with her boyfriend. She gives Alexa the lowdown on her favorite MiMo hot spots.
