Go-to places in Miami

Well, I’ve been back from vacation for a few weeks now and, as always, I’m taking my time to get back into the swing of things. In fact, I think my brain is still in vacation mode. I couldn’t delay it any longer, however. Today, the new issue of Food&Wine awaited me at home. It features the 2008 go-to restaurants in major cities around the world. Here’s Miami’s list — predictable, with one or two exceptions.

  • Hiro’s Yakko-San – “… Miami’s best place for lovers of regional Japanese delicacies…” 17040 W Dixie Hwy North Miami Beach; 305-947-0064.
  • Islas Canarias – “The place serves some of Miami’s best ropa viejo…” (Not a typo, that’s how they printed it). 285 NW 27th Ave.; 305-649-0440.
  • The Mahogany Grill – “… soul food that could only exist at the intersection of the Caribbean and the Deep South.” 2190 NW 183rd St.; 305-626-8100.
  • Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink – Of course… 130 NE 40th St.; 305-573-5550.
  • Michy’s – “… Bernstein’s cobalt blue dining room has been one of the most popular spots in town.” 6927 Biscayne Blvd.; 305-759-2001.
  • Palme d’Or – “… sets the standard for classic French cooking in Miami.” Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables; 305-913-3201.
  • Sardinia – ” … a hit.” 1801 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-2228.

  1. Welcome back, Paula. Hope you enjoyed your vacation and time away from blogging. Have you tried both Matsuri and Yakko-San? Is there much of a difference?

  2. Welcome back Paulita-good to see you’re not rushing back into things! See ya round…

  4. Go Islas Canarias! :)

  5. Maika – Believe it or not, I’ve only visited Michy’s and Michael’s from the list. I enjoyed both and would recommend a try. My goal is to compare Matsuri to Yakko San for Blind Mind. It’s on my to-do list.
