2. Council Oak Steaks & Seafood 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, FL (Hollywood)

Located in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL, you'll know you've arrived at Council Oaks when you spot the giant window filled with prime cuts. Select your meat of choice from "The Butcher Shop" while you sip from an extensive collection of Napa Valley and Old World wines. Council Oaks' Sunday brunch, complete with a full raw bar, carving stations, and made to order sushi, is not to missed.

3. La Mar by Gaston Acurio 500 Brickell Key Drive, Miami, FL 33131 (Brickell)

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.

This SoFo spot is cooking a lot of the food in the actual dining room at remote cooking stations and giving you bruschetta with mussels and fried zucchini before you even order. Be sure to try the Champagne truffle ravioli.

6. Azul 500 Brickell Key Dr, Miami, FL 33131 (Brickell)

Don't pre-judge Azul, inside Mandarin Oriental, as just another overly priced, elaborate hotel restaurant. Because it's not. The menu boasts a range of Asian fusion dishes, like yellowfin tuna carpaccio and hibiscus-glazed short rib, available à la carte or part of a multi-course tasting menu. Then of course, there's the waterfront ambience: the restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Biscayne Bay.
