This five star, fike diamond resort's resto AQ boasts creative creations by Chef Dewey Losasso, who takes your favorite childhood classics like SpaghettiOs, and replaces the processed tomato sauce and mystery meat with a rich, local crema sauce, a charred Serrano chile & truffle oil on the side.
Now with new ownership, Miami’s oldest barbecue joint is at it again, bringing back the original cinnimony-sweet sauce from a recipe by Uncle Tom himself, It's also got a new menu with things like a brisket-or-pulled-pork stuffed mac 'n' cheese. Local's consider Uncle Tom's one of the best places in town to get barbecue.
This sweet meatball shop has -- in addition to... balls... of meat -- 12 wines on tap. Really, you can't go wrong here.
This restaurant/cooking school refuses to be put in a box. "Global cuisine" means duck fat poached black cod served up beside beef tartare and even scallops and sweetbreads. A featured eight- to 18-course tasting menu ensures you'll take in as much as possible from this experimental kitchen.
This Brickell Italian spot has wine taps, Asian BBQ pulled pork pizzettes, pricotta ravioli, and meatballs. Plus they hold contest every month for the best Italian recipes.
Rhino's got custom-made coffee blends and donuts like maple bacon, oreo cookie crumble, homemade peanut butter-filled candy bar, white chocolate coconut, pistachio cream, and whatever other crazy stuff they come up with, so ya know... waiting in line is probably worth it.
A gastropub with housemade sausage might not sound particularly special, but when you find out that their Sausage of the Sea has a mix of salmon, fresh octopus, dry sea scallops and herbs, you'll definitely want to make a beeline in that direction. Add to that their house-cured bacon, TVs, and rare craft German beers (some of which get mixed with duck into another housemade sausage) and the spot is a must-visit.
Everyone's welcome here! Doesn't matter if you're a suit or wearing flip-flops because TK's got international "America" nosh that'll satisfy all your cravings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happy hour.
If you're wondering tequila goes best with your quesadilla, don't worry, there a Mezcal Concierge. Yup, there's a guy here whose job it is to tell you which of their 100+ tequilas or mezcals to pair with your food.
