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

Not that I know of. Kosher Kingdom and other grocery stores offer delivery for a fee. Yes Market is free though don't know if they sell prepared food.

Not much. Maybe an extra 10-20min slow down here or there.

I'm in Boca Raton for a few days, I saw on tripadvisor, loop rd in the everglades was anyone there? Is it worth the long drive from Boca? Also what would be the closest kosher dairy restaurant to Loop Rd?
Any other must see indoor attractions for 2 adults visiting Florida?
Thank you in advance for any recommendations or tips

Loop Rd is 100% worth the drive from Boca. You'll get very up close with gators and other wildlife in a way you can't do elsewhere.
Sunrise Pita is the closest kosher place to Loop Rd, the closest dairy places are the ones in Hollywood on Stirling rd. Neither are particularly close though.

Some activities to add:

Speedboat tour

This is more of a ride in the boat than a tour, although they do spend some time saying which mansion belongs to which actor or sports player. We were entirely uninterested in that but it did not take away from it. The back corners got soaked, a couple of seats up the sides or across the back got wet and the rest of the boat was taking selfies with their phones and only got a little wet. The entire family enjoyed it.

https://www.thrillermiami.com/

Jetboat Miami is a bit cheaper but is a half hour tour while Thriller is 45 min. Thriller has 2 boats leaving every half hour and therefore has much better availability even for our group of 9 while Jetboat did not have anything for us for a next day reservation.

We also went on a Banana boat ride which is somewhat interchangeable with tube rides with a banana boat being shaped more like a banana and you ride with your legs on either side. the tube or banana get pulled by a boat through the water. Most places seem to allow from age 6 and up. Every single one in our group ranging from 6 to 21 (plus myself) had an amazing time! DW sat in the boat with the 4 YO. My girls were able to go wearing coverups. There are a number of places offering this at varying prices ranging from high 30s to 70s. Some of the differences between them are whether a reservation is required and available slots as well as the type of tube or single/double banana boat. The double gives the option of riding like a tube by sitting in the middle. Note that the places use tubing and banana boating interchangeably so if you want a specific option you should check in advance.

Some of the differences between the different places are whether they are on a beach or in a marina, which makes a big difference in tznius, whether they need reservations, available slots, price, and the type of boat.

What is the covid situation on the ground in Miami. We were planning on going to Miami next week. If there is major covid tension we will cancel our trip.
