If all else fails, beach and pool

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

1. Backyard BBQ (New chef in mid 2017 totally new menu): Burnt ends, 2nd cut brisket, Dinosaur Rib, BBQ Sundae, BBQ Burger.

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. Miso Bass is incredible as well.

3. Harbour Bistro, new menus in early 2018: Chicken and waffles just perfect, duck a l'orange pot stickers, millionaire ramen, lamb shank, charcuterie platter if that's your thing... Also serving brunch, Chicken and waffles again, eggs Benedict with bacon on top,

4. Fuego: Flatbreads are a must, then the back ribs, pastrami egg rolls, smores dessert, perfect date drink are good. (Update March 2017, the app chef and bbq chef isn't there anymore and the quality has been spotty from recent reviews.)

5. Zak The Baker. Menu changes too often to recommend stuff. Not Cholov Yisroel.

6. Kosh: Chocolate souffle and korean beef with extra sauce are good.

7. Rustiko: Spinach and Artichoke Dip, (Quinoa Salad is very good), (Pappardelle Mushroom if lunch), Mushrooms Panzerotti is an absolute must order only down side is it's a dinner only item. Oreo cheescake dessert but make sure it's fresh.

8. Harbour Grill: The Harbour Grill Filet or TheKing Reserve steaks are great. Supreme Burger is very good as well.

9. Pizza type options:

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

Jerusalem Pizza: Best plain pie, get it fresh in store, coated fries good as well.

Lenny's pizza: Gan Eden Pie.

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 now also in Surfside!


#2020 Restaurants with outdoor seating

Soho - large semi enclosed patio, perfect for a rainy day

Fuego - large semi sheltered area outside the restaurant, indoors area has a new $20k air filtration system

Mozart Sunny isles -  large semi sheltered area outside the restaurant

Foozo - streetside tables

Zak The Baker -  streetside tables

Cine Cita, Backyard BBQ, Street Kitchen, 26, Kosh - streetside tables on Harding Ave

Good bye Lenny's.

Good bye Jerusalem.

Good bye pizza at Kosher Kingdom and Sarah's tent.

BRAVO HAS COME TO TOWN!

And WOW!

Eggplant Parmesan Pizza:


Life changing.

Soft opening until after Pesach with different pies and menu items each day.

(Addendum: Plain pizza pie, and fries were eh, ok.)
It seems that Lenny's, in Hollywood anyways, competes on price not product. Mizrachi Pizza in Hollywood makes a solid pizza, but there too, I think many are loyal because David Mizrachi supports several community organizations. Not to mention, that my kids won't touch anything but a plain pizza!

  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I'm sorry, but if the size of the slice is on your radar for what makes something the best, you aren't part of this conversation. Nothing personal :P

Yea, I am sure the Hollywood places are safe. I don't think there is too much crossover for Pizza.

Doesn't compare to that eggplant parm slice.

Kashrus is kind of a personal thing, but Rabbi Golowinsky is legit, if that's what you're asking.

AFAIK, he used to work for the OK, and is now a solo outfit. Those whose expertise in these areas I rely on looked into it, and I was told by them that it was a financial decision on his part, and that I can trust on his hechsher. For whatever that is worth...

He's also certifying Mozart cafe in Sunny Isles. Is there any story for their changing from KM?

Mozart in a few places switched to him a few years back, and according to the owner at the time, it was just cheaper than KM/ORB.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
