4. Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill 3115 NE 32nd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL (Fort Lauderdale)

The inventive chefs at this waterfront locale for Kim’s sports palace have created some rolls (like the Miami Vice with dry-rubbed tuna, mango, pineapple cilantro and masago) that’ll have you completely forgetting about ordering their already-famous wings, all while watching the game right on the Intercoastal on 150 flat screens. Or, pull your boat right up: they’ve got 350 feet of dock space.

5. Nothing But The Best 2525 SW 3rd Ave, Miami, FL 33129 (The Roads)

French owner Chef Yann Rio has given his Roads French/Asian fusion joint a name that doesn’t exactly set guests’ expectations low. But once you start dining on stuff like risotto croquettes with truffle oil and green sauce and or duck Magret a la plancha in stunning surroundings reminiscent of an Asian meditation room, you realize Yann is, like so many Parisian cab drivers, just being brutally honest.

8. R House 2727 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127 (Wynwood)

At R House, you can enjoy your meal of choice to the stylings of a live DJ, while seated in a fully functional art gallery. The cuisine, described as a blend of Mediterranean, Asian and Latin flavors, is something of a work of art in itself, always prepared and plated with creative flare. The kitchen serves up everything from grilled ahi tuna lo-mein and sweet peat falafel to wasabi-glazed skirt steak with sweet chili potatoes, all of which is typically paired with musical interludes by a local guest DJ. And If you didn't get your art fix from you entree alone, patrons are welcome to admire and even purchase the gallery pieces on display. Stationed in the heart of the Wynwood arts district, this eatery is making space for visual, musical and culinary artistry, all under the same roof.
