Seafood/Cuban food in Miami
We will be in Miami for a weekend in March with our kids (6 and 9) and are looking for recommendations for a cuban restaurant and a good seafood restaurant. I was planning to go to Garcia's Grille, but they are not open for dinner. We will probably be staying in Doral near the Airport but will have a car. We are looking for non-chain restaurants. Also any recommendations for breakfast and good coffee?
I'd do river oyster for seafood (their seafood is great, but their bbq stuff is even better btw). I will let others recommend cuban.
Since you're going to be in Doral, I can't really suggest much for seafood... or Cuban, but I'll try.
For seafood, I'm aware of Donde Luzma Seafood restaurant in Doral. Can anyone vouch for it being any good? I imagine it being average to above average, as that place has been around for quite a while.
Also, in Doral, there's several other places you can check:
Ajiaco's Grill: Colombian, late night options
Biscotti: Venezuelan bakery (pastries, quick foods)
Brasero's: Venezuelan steakhouse (try the punta trasera cut of meat)
Chispa: Very "Miami" Latin-Fusion
La Carreta: A Cuban-Miami-Chain standard
La Esquina del Lechon: Non-chain family friendly Cuban-Venezuelan (has breakfast too)
Layali Miami: pretty good Lebanese
Mojito's (inside Dolphin Mall): I thought this is a really good Cuban restaurant
Mondongo's: Another Colombian, famous Colombian chain (at least in Colombia)
