Miami - United States

Miami takes its dining scene very seriously. People come from all over the world to drink and dine in this sunny city on the Atlantic Ocean. Restaurants here serve a wide variety of cuisine, ranging from South American to Continental to Caribbean, while the local fusion cuisine known as "Floribbean" borrows influences from all three regions.

Many of the city's restaurants specialize in fresh, local seafood. Swordfish, yellowtail, and oysters have a place on most menus. In the autumn and winter, stone crab season takes over. At restaurants such as the legendary Joe's Stone Crab, people wait for hours to enjoy the delicious crustaceans.

Many of Miami's eateries represent the countries and regions of Latin and South America. Brazilian rodizio, Argentine churrasco and Peruvian seafood are just a few of the ethnic specialties local restaurants dish out. Dozens of Cuban eateries serve filling, tasty meals at very low prices.

Whether you're looking for a cheap and filling meal, a gourmet dining experience or a night among the stars, you can find it in one of the districts of this splendidly diverse city.

South Beach & Miami Beach
South Beach is the epicenter of excitement and glamour in Miami. It is here at restaurants like Prime One Twelve that you're most likely to spot a celebrity at the next table. Although many of the restaurants are very pricey, places such as the ever-popular La Sandwicherie offer a pleasant atmosphere, low prices and great food. Grab an outside table and enjoy your gourmet sandwich as you gawk at the SoBe street scene.

Although central Miami Beach is not as jam-packed with restaurants as its southern neighbor, there are plenty of excellent dining options, many of them located within the luxury hotels. At Hakkasan, located in the famed Fontainebleau, patrons can savor the delicious contemporary Chinese cuisine while enjoying the tranquil view of the ocean.

Downtown Miami
Downtown Miami is popular with businesspeople and other locals. Nightlife is more subdued here, but there's a flourishing restaurant scene. The various steakhouses serve delicious food with a local twist. CVI.CHE 105 has Peruvian dishes on its menu and specializes in ceviche, while Soyka has American classics like burgers and fries. For those looking for something out of the ordinary, try the Asian fusion restaurant Bali Cafe.

Coral Gables
Coral Gables, a quaint village within Greater Miami, boasts a culturally rich entertainment and dining scene. Sample gourmet Jamaican dishes at Ortanique on the Mile, or try Su-shin Izakaya, where sushi is the specialty. Rustic Greek cuisine is the focus at Mylo's, and for a classic Italian meal look no further than Caffe Vialetto.

Coconut Grove
Coconut Grove, another small and trendy community within Central Miami, boasts a number of excellent casual and gourmet dining choices. You'll find some of the best seafood around at places such as Chart House and Scotty’s Landing. The Last Carrot is a popular vegetarian café in this area where you can get a great meal for a reasonable amount of money.

Key Biscayne
Key Biscayne's restaurants have a different feel from any other part of Miami. The dining establishments here are characteristically laid-back and informal; most of the time, they open and close when they choose and menus can change daily. Grab fish and fries at a local spot. The Rusty Pelican has classic American cuisine and a brunch on Sundays. Stop at Cioppino for delicious traditional Italian dishes such as Ravioli al Funghi Porcini.

Little Havana
Little Havana, located in Central Miami, has the greatest number of excellent Cuban and South American eateries in the city. Versailles, while slightly more expensive than others, is justifiably famous for its food. Another excellent choice is Casa Juancho, where diners can enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine in a comfortable and elegant atmosphere that features live flamenco music.

The city of Aventura, best known for the gargantuan Aventura Mall, is home to a wide variety of gourmet and reasonably priced restaurants. For a classy dining experience, nothing can beat a meal at Bourbon Steak. And for inventive cuisine that doesn't stretch the budget, check out Hanna's Gourmet Diner, which just might be the best kept dining secret in the area.
