Eat, drink and be Murray

Florida is a renowned hotspot for celebrities around the world. Unsurprisingly, some have decided to open businesses in the Sunshine Estate, including Danny Devito, Cameron Diaz and Gloria Estefan. Here are two celebrity owned restaurants in Florida:

Murray Bros Caddyshack, Saint Augustine

Is it always Suntory time at the Caddyshack? Do they have groundhog in the menu? You might wonder that if you know that this restaurant is owned by comedian Bill Murray and his five brothers. Fans of the Ghostbusters man won’t be disappointed at the Murray Bros Caddyshack in World Golf Village, St. Augustine. Featuring Murray’s trademark flippant irreverence, the restaurant is a sort of country club gone wrong. In a good way.

The menu includes Sheboygan bratwurst, Chicago hot dogs and Italian beef, as well as salads, pasta, seafood and barbecue. “Eat, drink and be Murray,” the say.

Nobu Miami, Miami Beach

At the other end of the sophistication spectrum you have Nobu Miami, one of the trendiest dining options on South Beach, Miami. An ultra chic restaurant specialised in new Japanese cuisine, Nobu Miami is part owned by Robert you-talkin’-to-me De Niro. As celebrity owned restaurants go, you get a double whammy at Nobu, since the other star on board is also a celebrity on his own right. Nobuyuki Matsuhisa – known as Nobu – is the acclaimed chef proprietor of Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants.

Located in the hip Shore Club, Nobu has effortlessly won the tag of “place to be seen.” Nobu’s signature dishes  include Yellowtail with Jalapeno and Black Cod with Miso. And the popularity of these choices come to prove their point: “in the end, it is all about the food.”
