If you've seen the movie Forrest Gump, you can not miss going to eat at this American franchise but with a shrimp twist. If you haven´t seen the movie, you should go eat there anyways, because it is worth it, although it won´t be the same. Oh, and the movie is awesome. The restaurant is cool, too. It has a great atmosphere and the food is original. The service is also great.
The Knife is a good steakhouse in Bayside with all-you-can-eat menus that includes water, a bottle of wine, dessert, and access to a large buffet of appetizers, pasta, vegetables and excellent grilled meats, all at a fair price of $25.75 for lunch on Saturday (it costs less during the week). The restaurant is located on the second floor of the main building of the Bayside Marketplace, just across from the Hard Rock Café. The view of the bay is very beautiful and even the air conditioning is kept at a human level .. definitely recommended!
This is a restaurant in the center of Brickell on number 778 of the city's most famous street: Miami Dantawn. It is fantastic and it has great service but they serve you in English. There is a good quality for price, 75 dollars a person with a chocolate dessert that will make you cry. I recommend it. I will show you some photos of the night I went.
When I first went to the United States I was afraid that I would only eat junk food but it was not the case. Luckily I found the wagon, and during our twelve days in Miami my father and I went there many times. It is undeniable that Miami is Cuba and therefore could say gastronomically too. The first visit was to the one on Bird RD (Calle 40 and Avenida 86). Sandwiches, delicious milkshakes ... After spending a day at the airport It was great. Coffee is one of the best things at La Carreta, I love Cuban coffee. Afterwards, we went there for lunch a few days ate for $ 15 with drink and tip. One thing that surprised me is that when you order something they bring A DISH (a nice dish) and two dessert plates with the two Conduits (cassava, potato chips, etc ...) They also deliver. It's a shame I don't have photos, but I really recommend it.
If there's one chain that I go back to time and again it's Red Lobster. The food is pretty good and the price is always reasonable. And it's not just lobster either...you can also get fish, prawns, and crab.
You can't leave Miami without trying the meat at Cafe Charlotte. This Italo-Argentinean restaurant in the heart of Miami Beach serves amazingly tender Argentinian beef for only $8.00. Don't be fooled by the extraordinarily ugly exterior, the place is great. It is located on Washington Avenue between 15th and 16th.
Super Juicer is a one-stop shop for relief from the sweltering Miami heat. Located on the ground floor of the beautiful and pleasant Bayside Marketplace, Super Juicer serves freshly-prepared smoothies which are not only healthy, but tasty too! The service is warm and friendly. It's a good place to get your vitamins!
Nexxt Cafe is a super-charming restaurant with a really big menu and delicious desserts! I ordered a salad but it was so big that I didn't have to eat for the rest of the day! They have Happy Hour every day from 4-7:00pm where drinks at 50% off. They also serve brunch on Sundays between 10:00am and 2:00pm.
TGI Fridays is one of those places where you know you will eat well. I've been to many, and although the menu may vary slightly, typical tex mex is something I like all the time. The environment is very nice and the decor of each room has unique details. In Miami, there is a giant light bulb to go to the toilet and an astronaut, fun look at those type of details. Avoid order tickets, because the dishes are so great that even just ordering one, you will end upalways taking you one doggie bag. Of course unless you bring a big appetite, you are served to share, which helps. Another little tip, cocktails, ... they are so strong you will need to hand over your keys to get home safely. The service is great and it is a sports bar that is nice. It´s worth it.
The Sandbar Grill always puts you in a good mood. The service is excellent and the prices are acceptable, but best of all it's in the middle of Coconut Grove, so it's a great place to go after an afternoon of shopping with friends. The bar is popular among college students (which says something about the beer they serve), but the food is tasty and the good vibes are palpable.
It is an American franchise where I've eaten some of the best breakfasts of my life, where you can choose between sweet and savory. The best is: the "Lumberjack Slam", the "Meat Lover's Breakfast" and for the more greedy the "Belgian Waffle Platter. The quantity is big, the orange juice tastes heavenly even though I don´t know what they put in it, and the meringue was exceptional with fruit or chocolate ... I don´t have the address in Miami but there is one almost every 1000 meteres. They also have them in Costa Rica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
I went to Bahama Breeze in Miami a year or so ago, first for a snack on my way home but then I decided to check it out for dinner. In Miami, people usually have dinner a little later and when we went the kitchen was open, and most people were on the terrace having tapas. We started the evening with a glass of wine and some tapas on the Caribbean-themed terrace with Latin music and waiters in brightly-colored shirts. A breeze blew across the terrace, causing the tiki-torches to flicker in the evening light. Even though it's miles from the beach, you feel like you're right on the water.
The Front Porch Cafe is strategically located on Ocean Drive, one of the main avenues in Miami Beach, and is one of the best places around for breakfast! While the prices are high (nearly $15 dollars for a dish and a hot and cold drink) but the portions are huge and the quality is undeniably good. I'd suggest the omelettes which come full of stuffings and not at all greasy or fatty, and are served with a small salad of fruit and tomatoes. I also loved the enormous fruit salad with Granola...it mixed nearly a dozen kinds of fruits like kiwi, mango, pineapple, watermelon, grapes, and strawberries and was almost impossible to finish. The service is quick and attentive.
This is a place for those looking for real French, not necessarily the Americanized ones full of heavy cream-filled treats. If you're tired of pancakes (unfortunately, it happens) or your stodgy old diner breakfasts, the idea of a simple French breakfast is, well, mouthwatering. Well, don't worry, we found a cure for your pastry needs in the heart of Miami Beach. "La Provence" was one of our favorite restaurants in the area, I must confess! We found the recommendation through Routard Guide and they had excellent croissants at $1.80 that reminded us of home. Delicious and comforting at the same time! Not to be missed!
A great vegan bakery. Everything is 100% organic, gluten free, and, of course, with no animal products. It is run by its owner and chef Valentina Cordero, a Venezuelan chef who embarked on this adventure in 2012. This is a different idea that required a lot of research and study, all to provide the best vegan cupcakes and other desserts. I recommend trying the cupcakes with spirulina, it adds great color and freshness to the delicious food.
It is a restaurant worth going to. After you've been in the US for awhile, it's nice to be able to stop by Dolores and have a good bowl of gazpacho. The staff is very nice and usually also speak Spanish if you don't speak much English.
Sushi Sake is a well-known Japanese chain with several locations around Miami. The one in North Miami Beach has a terrace and lounge area outside and the interior is decorated with oriental motifs and striking upholstered walls. I went with friends on a Friday night and had a fantastic time! We shared a beef tataki with scallions and teriyaki sauce, but they also have a wide variety of sushi rolls and they even have some vegetarian rolls. I'd suggest the Spider Roll, it has crispy asparagus, crab, avocado, roe, and sesame seeds, all rolled in a seaweed wrapper. For those with more exotic tastes, the Calle Ocho roll can be a good choice. It's a Latin-Asian fusion with avocado and asparagus wrapped in a thinly-sliced banana and covered in eel sauce. The average per person is between $15-25.00.
