Tell Me Where To Eat

My wife and I are going to be visiting Miami next weekend. We've been there a few times, but really are not familiar with what is available. We will be staying in the Coconut Grove area. On Saturday night we will be hosting dinner for six others, 5 German nationals and a Cuban-American. I am looking for a nice restaurant to take them to, but since I'm going to be buying for eight, some place not super expensive, say less than $20 per plate not including beer(lots of beer)/wine/drinks. I think everyone likes fresh fish and everyone likes Cuban, but they would probably be open to a variety of cuisines. Outdoor seating would be a plus, as would be not having to drive too far. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  1. I would suggest "Jaguar" in the Grove......It has a fusion between Mexican and Peruvian cuisine......The ceviche is spectacular......Their menu items are absolutely delicious.....I've eaten there and entertained there many times.....and never a disappointment......The do have outdoor seating.....but keep in mind it's still pretty hot here.....

    1. Havana Harry's is a 5 minute car ride fromt the Grove. Good, reasonably priced Cuban food.

      1. I haven't eaten there, but the Peacock Garden Cafe looks lovely. Also, Merrick Park is close by with a number of places that are at least aesthetic. Havana Harry's is a smart suggestion, and if you look into Crazy About You, it might fit the bill including the water view. These days, Brickell has a lot of possibility. Finally, Whisk in South Miami is not far and pleasant. If hoisting beers in a festive faux Oktoberfest fashion is the wunsch, sitting outside at Fritz and Franz, Gordon Biersch, Beer and Burger Joint, or the Brickell Irish Pub might work. For all else, go to Versailles where Germans will laugh their asses off amid all the shiny lights.
