It’s Suga’s Birthday! 36 with Benjamin Button Trix!

Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga, Founder/Owner of Suga Lifestyle

Yassss it’s Suga’s Day!

I am feeling Thankful and Blessed for another great year. 35 was surely a year into Overdrive. Now I will try to reshift the focus to a little bit more me. Self care, self love and keeping young while nobody can quarantine my hustle.

Remember now, it’s a #shotgirlsummer1💉 and #shotboysummer! We are ALL moving forward during and after Covid-19.

Thanks for keeping up with me and supporting Suga Lifestyle and my Charities! Stay tuned for greater things as I continue to PROMOTE local & small businesses with Love.

My 2021 GW Art Collection will soon be out! Thanks to all who have supported GW Art from the very beginning and especially during Covid 19. Looking forward to new support too, as GW Art is for everyone!

May my Restaurant Reviews and other Culinary outings and experiences continue to ENTERTAIN you too.

The NBA Playoffs and most Sports are back to regular scheduled programming this year and I look forward to giving you commentary & updates.

As a Certified Personal Trainer & Sports Nutritionist, I practice what I preach and I am pleased and proud to announce that I hit 100 Peloton Rides yesterday and I got my weight back to 128 just in between 125 & 130 where I like it. 💪🏾I am just a phone call away to EDUCATE.

Celebrate with Me!
Again, I am Thankful. CHEERS to #36withBenjaminButtonTrix!

XoXo, 💖Suga

Suga’s Breakdown

It’s always a pleasure to visit Harmony Hall, that dates backs to the 19th century, now the home of Summerhouse.

Exquisite outdoor dining with superior service and delectable courses that I enjoyed with my husband, Randy, friends and Suga Tasters, Ashleigh and Tennyson Arnold and Suga Baby, Blaire Arnold.

I could almost say our culinary experience was excellent from start to finish, but with fair warning, disappointing Dessert loomed the air. Bread Pudding is usually a common, highly anticipated request by us Jamaicans, where the calories are worth it. When ordered with a side of their dairy-free ice cream, the ice cream didn’t help it. It was dry and left unfinished. The other Dessert options weren’t satisfying either and sometimes this may leave a lasting impression, but definitely not this time. It’s early days, with many naturally talented bakers emerging during Covid. They should be able to find a superb Pastry Chef.

The Appetizers and Starch dishes were large enough to share, the Coal-Fired Proteins were divine and we had a few Cocktails. The Strawberry Bellini was on point👌🏾. Executive Chef Dennis McIntosh paid us a visit for feedback and he was lauded.

We enjoyed scrumptious Saltfish Fritters with a spicy dipping sauce, mouth-watering cheesy Callaloo dip with Crostini, Curried Ackee Wontons, juicy Local Beef Tenderloin cooked as ordered, Sweet Potato Gnocchi, tasty Orzo, mixed Mushrooms, savory Fresh Grouper, delish Ripe Plantain Gratin and one of specials of the day, Grilled Tuna with a heavenly lemon & cilantro butter. Feast your eyes.

Quite a delightful experience and currently considered one of the Best places to Brunch on a Sunday. Kudos to Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau, Jamaican sisters who have found a new home, where it’s always Summer, providing us with the pleasure of embracing modern, heritage dining with a side of fresh, Caribbean Sea breeze.
