1. Fontana at The Biltmore 1200 Anastasia Ave, Coral Gables, FL 33134 (Coral Gables)

Fontana is the Biltmore Hotel’s upscale Italian ristorante, known for its elegant décor, refined dinner menu, and tastefully over-the-top brunch. The indoor dining room is bookended by ornate vaulted ceilings and parquet wooden floors, while patio dining is situated in a lavish courtyard with a fountain surrounded by columned arcades. The European charm is reflected in Fontana’s food program; Chef Beppe Galazzi uses local and farm-fresh ingredients when stocking the breakfast buffet of eggs, meats, fruits, pastries, and yogurt, and the à la carte dinner of homemade pastas, meats, and antipasti.

2. Michael's Genuine 130 NE 40th St, Miami, FL 33137 (Design District)

Take advantage of MG's brunch and order the kimchi Benedict or lemon ricotta pancakes. You can also head to their happy hour to get loose on craft beers, specialty ‘tails and snacks, or dive in to a full sit-down meal like the pan-roasted 1/2 "Poulet Rouge" chicken with roasted vegetables or the short rib and fontina cheese panini.

3. The Setai Grill 2001 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

The Setai's upscale joint shifted from all-Asian everything to French steakhouse serving a 32oz bone-in tomahawk, dry-aged ribeyes, and Blanquette de Veau, which sounds like what Michael Jackson would've named his son if he was from Paris, but is actually braised veal.

5. The Rusty Pelican 3201 Rickenbacker Cswy, Key Biscayne, FL 33149 (Key Biscayne)

40yr-old landmark The Rusty Pelican looks like a Key West-beach-house-meets-country-club, with a labyrinth of glassed-in wine bottles separating the dining room from a 200-person indoor/outdoor lounge with low-slung couches, in addition to an expansive upstairs terrace.
