Anecdote – Twenty years ago I ate diner here whenever possible while working 24/7 for 3 weeks at the Diabetes Research Institute in Miami. With a (noisy) room in the nearby Adrian Hotels (used by foreign workers – now gone) on Ocean Drive next to the Versace Mansion for just $ 100 a week ! – about the same as the parking fee a week in the nearby Miami Beach Municipal Parking Garage. An Italian restaurant at the corner in that building would set up their restaurant every day again – install pots and pans, table and chairs , everything … ! – and take everything down/away again at the end of the working day – that was early morning actually – because dancing in 11th street around the corner would go on till around 3-5 AM … I noticed those nights that I woke up because of telephone calls from a lady talking some South American language , perhaps trying to contact her son who once lived there I guess 😉
