5. B.C. Cafe 4801 S University Dr, Davie, FL 33328 (Fort Lauderdale)

This brick-and-mortar annex of food truck monolith BC Taco touts its signature caveman-themed taco menu, shelling out favorites like the Hunter, the T-Rex, the Missing Link, and the Cave-Dweller, which -- though unconfirmed by archaeologists -- are speculated to be visible in prehistoric cave paintings around the world. The BC Café also serves breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, and breakfast sweet potatoes to fuel fellow hunter-gatherers for the long, arduous day ahead. And after a night out around the bonfire, BC Taco is the cave-orhood saving grace for its Hangover Burger, with beef, barbecue pork, mustard, coleslaw, and a sunny-side-up egg.

The Phuc Yea! crew's homey spot on Biscayne is serving comfort food that you can wash down with 15 wines, beers on tap, and cocktails... just not all at once. Their light, fluffy biscuits have been ranked as some of the best in the country and are just a little sweet with a honey apple cider glaze. This modern American tavern serves up lunch, dinner and boozy brunch, and their Bloody Mary, made with Southwestern-style chipotle, cilantro, horseradish and agave wine, is not one to miss.

8. Himmarshee Public House 201 SW 2nd St., Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33312 (Fort Lauderdale)

Occupying a Fort Lauderdale corner is the Himmarshee Public House, a grill and bar whose seemingly innumerably options cross taste boundaries. The food menu encompasses “Snacks & Bites,” “Main Plates,” “Greens,” “Sandwiches and Burgers” and “Sides,” and -- while you’ll be satisfied with the preponderance of dishes -- you won’t want to miss the smoked brisket nachos, the honey truffle fried chicken with skillet corn bread, or the Millionaire Cheese Steak with shaved rib-eye and truffle cheese sauce. The carefully curated beverage program features both local and brand name brews as well as wines and handcrafted cocktails, all of which will put a buzzy spin on the evening.

9. The Restaurant At The Raleigh 1775 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

Stepping into The Restaurant at The Raleigh is something like entering Narnia, sans wardrobe. The restaurant sits on its own terrace, with white-light-wrapped tree branches hanging over wicker chairs and tables like an untamed ceiling. In spite of the fact that it sits in the center of a Miami Beach hotel, this place feels like a genuine departure from the city motion waiting just outside. The menu focuses on modern American cuisine that is just as filling as it is tasty -- things like braised short rib with brussels sprouts, baked Maine lobster, and foie gras sliders. The place is armed with a raw bar and a martini bar, where patrons can gulp fresh oysters and Grey Goose, alike.

Peruvian culinary maestro Gaston Acurio is mixing Andean and Asian flavors into a bold menu that highlights his home country at this chic restaurant inside the Mandarin Oriental. The menu includes made-to-order ceviche; tiraditos, or Peruvian-style sashimi; and causas, a traditional dish of potatoes whipped with seafood, avocado, tobiko, tomato, and egg. The drink selection is equally quintessential Peru, offering various takes on the pisco sour.
