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

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

South beach is far walk from most shuls food. South beach is the blocks under 20 and orthodox area really is in the upper 30s to 40s. Bal harbor has a big chabad in the upper 90s. The beach is littered with hotels so u should be able to find closer to 41st st.
Carriage House Condo has a shul and its 54th st. As well in Bal Harbour there's a Young Israel and a sefardi shul in addition to the chabad shul.

They do not have points and its hard to buy Marriott points.

They need it for 2 nights from November 11 to the 13th. They'd rather out of Miami Beach. I wish I can somehow get the new St. Regis in Baal Harbor at a crazy rate.

 I may be able to get you a rate at the Fontainebleau around that price per night. Let me know. I can access a one bedroom suite on those dates, I just have to verify the price. Please let me know if you are interested so that I may contact my contact at the hotel and verify the price.

How to get around Miami?
« Reply #428 on: October 19, 2012, 02:12:35 PM »
Im staying in Bal Harbor, dont want to pay for a car for two reasons:

1) its $40/night to park.
2) last two times i went, i used the car at night every other day.

My wife and I (and little baby) are only going to go out for supper, so we dont really need a car. but what is the cheapest way to get around? thats safe (not buses)

Im staying in Bal Harbor, dont want to pay for a car for two reasons:

1) its $40/night to park.
2) last two times i went, i used the car at night every other day.

My wife and I (and little baby) are only going to go out for supper, so we dont really need a car. but what is the cheapest way to get around? thats safe (not buses)
the only way is taxis and they are not cheap

Why do you think buses are not safe?
That's pretty much your only form of public transport, besides taxis or hitching a ride.

im guessing it would still be cheaper than renting a car and paying for parking.

does anybody know where free/cheap parking is near st regis bal harbor?

I've taken a bus there, they're not the most comfortable, but what can you expect from a local citybus.
My guess is they're as safe as NYC buses, if ya know what I mean..

I stayed around Collins and 41 st and was able take busses from downtown up to Aventura. Very convenient and cheap. My wife and kids were very happy with busses

Enjoy Miami!
