Our newest tour takes you on a journey through the culinary wonderland that is Miami Beach, where special appetizer and tasting menus await you at every turn. The tour visits seven of the top restaurants, starting on Lincoln Road.
Van Dyke Cafe / Thursday nights from 5-7pm, this popular Lincoln Road Mall cafe will host “Karajoky” – a sunset jokefest hosted by M.C. Freddy Stebbins who’ll keep things lively by encouraging diners to share their favorite jokes on the breezy alfresco patio. To loosen up your funny bone, drinks are half price as are a variety of bar bites like calamari, ribs, and wings. – Van Dyke Cafe, 846 Lincoln Road, South Beach.
Texas de Brazil / There are nights when the word “hungry” doesn’t begin to capture your huge, drooling appetite – when only round after round of sizzling grilled steak, lamb, pork and sausage served by friendly gauchos alongside a 100 item soup and salad bar will satisfy your cravings. That’s what Texas de Brazil at the Miami Beach Marina does best. – Texas de Brazil, 300 Alton Road, South Beach.
Barton G / One of the legendary party and events planners in town, Barton G can make your next affair even more memorable with a painted elephant, a live giraffe or some pretty impressive pyrotechnics to dazzle your guests. For local foodies, his South Beach restaurant has just completed a stunning makeover which makes it an even better place to celebrate a birthday, a romantic evening or a pitch-perfect party! – Barton G, 1427 West Avenue, South Beach.
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar / Bravo TV’s Top Chef Jeff McInnis has an impressive track record in South Florida where he spent years crafting unique tapas at the DiLido Beach Club before setting the MidTown Arts District on fire with his late night bites at GiGi. This week the blond boy wonder brings his talents to South Beach with the opening of his deep fried southern chicken restaurant where he’ll create upscale riffs on grandma’s favorite recipes! – YardBird Southern Table, 1600 Lenox Avenue, South Beach.
Tudor House / If you are craving a taste of southern summertime goodness, look no further than Chef Jamie DeRosa’s crispy fried chicken at the Dream Hotel’s Tudor House Restaurant where the tart buttermilk dipping sauce and crisp cole slaw make for an upscale South Beach picnic on the patio! – Tudor House, 1111 Collins Avenue, South Beach.
FB Steak / Fine dining on Miami Beach should be equal parts professional service, appealing atmosphere and thoughtfully prepared food which makes FB Steak – overlooking the spectacular pool deck at the Fontainebleau Resort – one of the top spots for a culinary night to remember. New York’s favorite Chef Alfred Portale adds a little extra polish to this truly glamorous dining room. – FB Steak, 4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach.
Meat Market / So much more than the name on the door, Meat Market serves some of the freshest seafood prepared with the proper restraint both at the pristine raw bar and straight off the grill. For the non-carnivorous dining companion, this steakhouse offers the best of both worlds. – Meat Market, 915 Lincoln Road, South Beach.
