Dining Options - Walking distance to Gusman Center, Miami

Anyone have any suggestions for an early dinner that's walking distance to Gusman Center in Miami (174 E Flagler).

Anything except Indian or Sushi..

    You could always use the Metromover and head into Mary Brickell Village too. Metromover is the lone useful form of public transportation we have here in Miami. I have heard great things about Oceanaire and another restaurant who's name escapes me but I know there is a "Lolita" involved haha.

    The Gusman is a great venue. I saw Buddy Guy perfrom there and it was an incredibly good time.

      If you want an experience, go to Soya e Pomodoro.

        There are not many walking-distance dinner options downtown.
        La Loggia is about 3 blocks west. They have decent Italian food.
        Il Gabbiano and Prime Blue Grill are in a new building downtown at Biscayne & SE 3rd St. I've heard very good things about Il Gabbiano (Italian) and OK to good things about Prime Blue (steakhouse/seafood).
