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. Not Cholov Yisroel.

4. Kosh: Chocolate souffle is good.

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

6. Backyard BBQ (New chef in mid 2017 totally new menu): Burnt ends, 2nd cut brisket, BBQ Sundae, Lemon/Apple/Smores desserts.

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.

Hi! Can anyone recommend a place in the area of  Miami airport (perfer 2 hour or less) which has kosher food, and is Zika free...

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

TIA

Actually Deet is the real problem, officially it doesn't kill people.

I'm sorry but alternative facts belong in the elections 2016 thread.

Hard to say right now it's 55 at night.

Probably end of April May time. I wonder if they are still spraying, they have to be really dumb to let it come back again and then resume spraying.

Ppl from South Florida take this Zika thing very personally...

If you live here you would too.

Mosquito's thrive in a hot and wet climate, it very rarely rains in the winter here, its sunny now and not a cloud in the sky

Last 7 Days   
82°
   
52°

with 0 rainfall.

At 50-55 mosquito's die or go in to hibernation etc top that with crazy aggressive spraying, while i understand a fear of zika, this has been and my family moved to south florida 26 years ago, the most mosquito free ive ever seen miami, even back in the summer.

Will mosquito's return? sure, but I bet there will be very few mosquito's this summer, there is way too much ridding on it in tourism dollars and people are very educated.
