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.

Ya probably not worth it. Even if it's even Uber is easier imo and if you are ok with pool it's very cheap.

Fwiw parking tickets are only $18, assuming they only give once per day it's not a bad option lol.

Got the same question. Staying in Key Biscayne, no kids. I would go to eat and shopping... Oh, and I'm landing in FLL.

Much tougher call, it's further from restaurants. St. Regis you can walk to lunch and dinner every day.

Have there been menu and service improvements in Backyard BBQ since the new management (Mendel Segal) took over? (We are planning to go during Yeshiva week...)
