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, Lemon/Apple/Smores desserts.

2. 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.)

3. 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.

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

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

6. 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.

Does anyone know where to find a current Kosher Kingdom takeout menu? Do they have things like sushi and chicken salads if we wanted to do cold shabbos meals? If not where is the best place to get a takeout chicken-salad-like item. Thanks!

...

-100

This $85/adult is $111.18 when you include the 9% tax and the 20% service charge!

They sequenced it that way -- are they seriously adding the 20% service charge to your tax, as well??

The waiters deserve to be paid -- however can't this come from part of the $85/pp fee?!?! (This appears to be a nice meal of a variety of salads and a Roast Beef main dish... = $85/pp)

The Shavuot menu is $120 PP plus all the same fees so $85 PP is definitely more affordable but not as affordable as Backyard BBQ

Harbour Bistro has a totally new menu, they are Asian Fusion now.

New menu below.

I had the:

"THE SAMURAI 68
Dry aged 24oz bone in Ribeye served
with a shiitake mushroom stew and a
hoisin demi glace"

And it was fantastic! Cooked perfect, had an amazing crust on it, and fantastic sauce.



Also had Scallion Mashed Potatoes on the side and they were phenomenal.

Went next door to Harbour Grill for dessert to try their caramel tart dessert:



I'm not a caramel fan so didn't care for it. The caramel was very bitter.

The new menu (they also still have all of their dried meats):
