JJ1000's list of top restaurants and dishes in Miami:

1. Fuego: Flatbreads are a must, then the back ribs, pastrami egg rolls, smores dessert, perfect date drink are good.

2. 26: Sushi pizza is  a must I prefer it with baked salmon, then the Passion Mojito, Sushi Teriyaki tempuraed, Cilantro Aioli dip and truffle fires, all of their soups are good.

3. Zak The Baker. Menu changes too often to recommend stuff.

4. Kosh: Chocolate souffle is good.

5. Foozo: Foozolis, the caprese foozoli with extra balsamic sauce, their pastas are good as well.

Also notable unique places are The Freeze which makes ices, serendipity makes ice cream (there is one next door to ZTB now), and Miami Beach Chocolates turtles and bark.

Are you affiliated with Mozart?
no. not affiliated with any FL restaurant. My kids liked it there....

we have reservations to eat at backyard BBQ for Friday night dinner. I'll report back on how it was.

@Mikeoracle , how was Backyard BBQ for Friday night?

And -- has anyone been to Backyard BBQ since award winning BBQ-master Mendel Segal has moved to FL and he's been working at BBBQ and updating the menu?
