Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Quick Hit
Coming to the area for 24 hours..flying into Ft. Lauderdale, sailing out of Miami so can stay in either. Waiting to pick a hotel based on where the restaurants will be. One lunch and one dinner. Never been to the area so I am thinking really authentic Cuban for one meal and stone crab for another? Is Joe's actually good, or is it just a tourist trap?
My 9 and 12 year olds are coming as well. They are serious foodies, and would probably call social services if I ever handed them a kid's menu, but I probably don't want to bring them to anyplace that is too much of a crazy bar scene at night.
Bongos on the Beach aka Lario's on the Beach Ocean Drive and 8th Street South Beach
Joe's Stone Crabs Washington Ave @ 1st Street South Beach
Stay in the middle and you'll be 4 blocks from either with a nice turquoise sea to the east!
