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.

Did you have the Montreal sandwich hot? I thought the Pastrami was excellent.

Yes I did. It was very good!

If anyone has a gas receipt  from Sunday in Fort Lauderdale or Miami, please PM me. I need a photo of one to send to a rental agency, to prove that I purchased gas before returning my car. TIA.

(A screenshot of a cc statement, would also suffice).

 Thank you very much I should  have mentioned it needs to be Cholov Yisroel if it is dairy.  The sorbet flavors do say nondairy so perhaps this is an option. 

 And a nice sit down options?

They will also enjoy the mall aspect I'm sure. Just imagine if you go to a sit down fleish place it'll set you back $250+ for dinner so a bit of shopping isn't so bad ;)
