Outdoor Lunch in Miami Beach

I'm looking for a nice lunch spot in Miami Beach that is unique in ambience (outdoor patio, Miami Beach style) for family members to attend to celebrate a graduation. Any suggestions?

    Smith & Wollensky has the best outdoor patio on the beach. Scenic

      I always like the patio at Talula. I've not been but have heard the DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz Carlton is nice. The Standard goes in the same category (not been, heard it's nice, though have generally heard better things about the food at DiLido).

        Ate at both a few times to satisfy the waterfront tourism obligation (WTO), and each atmosphere was better than the food in my opinion, which is why you want to go to begin with. There were high spots -- fries, lobby design, water, and music at The Standard and the idiosyncratic ocean promenade walkers and pita somethin' or other at DiLido.

          I disagree about Dilido. I enjoy lunch there. The steak salad is very good and the fried oyster w/ chorizo app is kickass. They also have great sangria and a nice people watching view.
