Your late-night ramen craving just got cured in Broward, where this spot in Downtown Hollywood is slinging authentic Japanese noodles until the wee hours (or during somewhat reasonable hours if you like your sleep). Plus there's fresh sushi, sashimi, fried avocado, and their specialty Gangnam wings.
Located in Miami's bustling midtown center, this shellfish spot offers an intimate reprieve of west and east coast oysters in a nautically themed, dimly lit space. If oysters are just a little too adventurous for you, they’ve got a full menu with New York strip, shrimp-stuffed monkfish, vegetarian curries, and even a mob burger made with bacon and angus beef.
Scarpetta is a great spot in Fontainebleau. Be sure to order the creamy polenta, ravioli, local snapper, coconut pana cotta.
Kitchen 305 is set in the lobby of Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort, and boasts great seafood (special deals on Fridays! Yeah!), beachy cocktails, and tons of reasons to act crazy...like you're partying in a hotel...
This high-tech Boca Asian joint makes it easy to photo-document your meal with with camera-equipped monitors AT THE TABLE that let you post your food selfies to social media at the touch of a button. You can also check in on Facebook, “like” items on the menu, and play video games against other tables.

The guys who brought actually-reasonably-priced ceviche to Downtown have also produced the unthinkable in this spot: a trendy, delicious, reasonably priced seafood restaurant in South Beach.
NYC's Buddakan and Morimoto owner opened up some beachfront digs with 954, wielding decor like a 15foot-long jellyfish aquarium and an outdoor tropical garden; they're plating a full roster of prime 28-day dry-aged filets, ribeyes, and NY strips to help live up to its name.
