ideas on S Beach Mia
Ocean Drive is pretty much a tourist trap as far as restaurants go. But I had a good meal at BLT Steak in the Betsy Hotel on the northern end of Ocean Drive. The regular menu is pretty straight-ahead steakhouse style with a few fish items thrown in for good measure, but they have several daily specials that mix things up a bit more. And the popovers and chicken liver mousse they start you with are fantastic.

Prime 112 is on the southern end of Ocean Drive and people love it. I find it overhyped and overrated but as far as people watching, you can't beat it. I'd go if you've never been. BLT is far superior , food wise, but there's absolutely no scene or vibe, though it's a lovely ambience and the complete geographical opposite of Prime at the northern end of Ocean Drive. Both are quieter ends of the tourist trap!
We dined at BLT Steak last week and were very happy with the meals and service. My spouse ordered the salt-encrusted baked snapper (I'm not sure this is how it is described on the menu) -- perfectly done; moist and favorful.
We ate inside; there is outside seating, but not sure about the people watching.
