Best eats in Sunny Isle/Aventura

Someone asked me about the best eats in the Sunny Isle area - staying at Le Meridien, Sunny Isles - within cab would be perfect, budget not an issue. Not sure what's out there.

    My favorite place up that way is Timo right in Sunny Isles - Mediterranean bent, menu changes pretty regularly, classy but comfortable, great wine list.

    A couple newer places I haven't tried yet and may not be mentioned in those threads - Il Mulino (in the Aqualina, Sunny Isles) and Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak (Turnberry Aventura).

      Thanks Frod.

      I've passed these on - meanwhile, is there anything up that way that you would consider absolutely outstanding food and wine - of the quality of some of the best down in the South Beach area?


      1. re: Food on the brain

        First, I would not say that South Beach is the dining mecca of South Florida. Some of the best restaurants in town these days are in less established areas.

        Having said that, Timo is one of my favorites in any part of South Florida, and just happens to be in Sunny Isles, and I've heard very good things about Bourbon Steak though I can't vouch for it personally.

          Cool. Menu at Timo looks like what they are hoping for. Think that's the winner! The others discussed in a lot of the links sound.....plain or basic, or perhaps more ethnic than what they are looking for.

          Thx Frod! You are truly the guru of S. Florida chowing!
