Lunch in Miami Beach

dhenry18 Apr 28, 2011 04:45 PM

Headed down to South Beach, and I will be having lunch with some friends. Headed to Prime 112 for dinner, and I was looking for a great, reasonably-priced place for lunch. I've been to Michael's Genuine, and I was thinking of going over the causeway and going there. Any suggestions of great places in South Beach? Thanks!

      I'd add Ice Box Cafe and Pita Spice to that list. Taste bakery also worthy (on Alton)

        Miss Saigon might not be too bad if it is not too hot outside. Seating is a bit cramped inside. Food is very good.

        tpigeon, I saw you posted Puerto Sagua as the best Cuban spot in Miami Beach, and after eating there last night and being transported to the Cuban places of my youth in NYC, I know you are right. Since you are clearly trustworthy, any other suggestions for Cuban, PR, DR type places would be appreciated.

          I have not been to milagro in a while but I liked the food there as well (DR). You can get the mofongo at Jimmy'z on the weekends on the beach. El chalan is good peruvian (I know you did not ask for peruvian but thought I would throw it in).

            We love Peruvian. My wife is Panamanian, so that would be the killer suggestion. Colombian second, I suppose. Thanks for replying.
