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

There's an interesting Kachoo Roll which is schnitzel in sushi.
I had it one time and it was awful. fwiw. Driest schnitzel inside... Like rubber in a sushi roll.

Anyone have any tips for Everglades?

I’m having trouble finding a reasonable price (getting $200/hour quotes for boat ride)

I remember years ago we went on an airboat and safari tour in some reserve and it was well priced.

Also, any other good activity near the restaurant area in surf side?

Boca is very quiet right now. FWIW.

In the past went to the Everglades park and rented bikes and rode around the trail, if you're wanting to see gators, we saw about 100 and got really close. Can't compare to a boat ride, since not done that, but it was fun.

Sunday Night we took the kids to Soho- one of my favorite restaurants in the WORLD- Only restaurant that has Meat Sushi

Anyway we started with 2 orders of Dumplings 1 beef and one chicken. They were above average but no sauce was brought so maybe we should have waited for it.



Then we had the Kung Pao Chicken pops- They were amazing!



We were recommended the lettuce wraps with Chicken and Beef and it was very good.



We got chicken Fingers and fries for one of my kids who is a picky eater but we all shared it and it was really good too.

The main course for me was the meat sushi

I got the Kachoo Roll which is schnitzel in sushi and boy it is amazing!



I also got the Shawarma roll which isnt as good but it is really great. I am still salivating from these rolls!



We got the Soho Fried Rice Which everyone loved



Followed by the General Chicken which is basically Sesame Chicken Very good as well



Finally Crispy Beef which was great as well!



For Dessert we got the Chocolate Souffle with extra ice cream for the kids it was above average but not close to the best one I've ever had



My wife got the Passion Fruit non-alcoholic drink and loved it as well!



Overall Another great visit to Soho!
Bumping this and will update with this years visit as we got mostly the same things

We got the General Chicken, Soho Fried Rice and Kachoo Roll all were very good!

New items we got were as follows:

Mongolian Beef- Didnt like was too watery and the beef was chewy



Some type of Mushrooms- very bland not recommended


Hamburger and Fries roll: Not so clear from the picture: It had hamburger, lettuce, fries , and pickles inside. I just wanted to try it for the Heck of it but it ended up being really good. I would get this again 



We got this dessert, I forgot what it is called. It was amazing we all loved it!

I am traveling to South Florida for a quick 2 day break. I am flying into FLL. I am considering staying at Hyatt Centric Las Olas Fort Lauderdale. (want to stay at Hyatt only due to free parking and resort fees and the current promotions). Has anyone stayed there? Also the location seems a bit out of the way for kosher food and minyan, any opinions on that?
Last time I stayed at the Confidante and did not enjoy staying on the beach in the middle of all the hustle and bustle.

I'm going to clarify more as I should've earlier.

Looking for commercial broker that personally has worked with local banks in FL as this a little bit of a more complex deal.
I know Michael personally as well. He has done many deals in Fl. I know a friend who used him around 15 years ago in Florida, so yes, he has experience in Fl as well and as mentioned earlier he is a straight up guy; would be my first choice

Staying at the Marriot villas in Doral. How shabbos friendly is it?Anything I need to know before hand?
Are there any options for shabbos meals nearby? Is there an eruv there too?
I have never stayed there for Shabbos. There is no Eruv in Doral itself. The a/c shuts off if you open the balcony so you would have to disable or just not use it. You have a full kitchen with a self cleaning oven. So you can kasher the kitchen and cook your own food or buy takeout from any store. Miami Beach or Aventura are both under 30 minutes away with plenty of options.

Thank you! How do I disable the AC from going off?
Are there any ‘shabbos in a box’ options in Miami area?

Staying at the Marriott AC hotel on 19th and Collins Avenue. We're renting a mini van. What overnight parking options are available nearby? Parking at the hotel is $50 a day.

Thanks!

Genius!  So it's the guy who gets the car for me? I just tell $25 and that's it, for a week straight?

Only the driver should take the uber to pick up and drop off the car.

Of course, that was pretty dumb of me.  What's on 41st? Street parking that would be cheaper?
