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

The classic hamburger is outrageously good, and the skirt steak was delicious (if you like the hangar steak at Le Marais).  Otherwise, I've heard all the filet steaks and rib-eye are quite good -- but hangar/skirt steaks are what I stick with anywhere they are offered so I wouldn't know personally.  Enjoy!

Was in Rare two weeks ago. It is very good, not outrageously good. Beer battered chicken nuggets and beer battered onion rings were excellent, as was the apple cobbler dessert.
I had the black angus ribeye, my wife had the skirt steak. They were both very good but wasn't heads and shoulders above anything I've tasted before.

I'm flying to FLL for my 4th wedding anniversary on 5/15 (thanx Dan for the 2 $100 codes!) and am staying for 3 nights. I've the 2 free Hyatt nights (regular, not suites) from the Chase Hyatt Card.

A) What is the nicest Hyatt in this area ?
B) What is my best option for the 3rd night? Paying for a room or using Hyatt points (transferring from UR) ?

Thank you for your help!

I'm flying to FLL for my 4th wedding anniversary on 5/15 (thanx Dan for the 2 $100 codes!) and am staying for 3 nights. I've the 2 free Hyatt nights (regular, not suites) from the Chase Hyatt Card.

A) What is the nicest Hyatt in this area ?
B) What is my best option for the 3rd night? Paying for a room or using Hyatt points (transferring from UR) ?

Thank you for your help!
Firstly congratulations.
Secondly the Hyatt Miami at the Blue seems like a nice option, and IMHO Id just transfer in UR for the 3rd night. Big bummer to change hotels for no reason.

I live in South florida and my husband and I want to get away for a bit... IN Florida so we are not too far from our kids. Suggestions? We are thinking of going to the keys. We have 100,000 UR between us, and 60k SPG. We would stay one or two nights max. Must be near water. Not necessarily Kosher food. We are thinking also of renting a home so we can have a private pool. Any suggestions?

Its usually not economical to rent a pool for one or two nights. most places won't do it, and even if they do the cleanup fee will make it very expensive

Hampton inn in Key Largo was nice, with a private beach which IME was empty.
Might be worth a drive to Key West though.

I think the way to go would be HomeAway or AirBnb which I doubt clean between guests.
