Dinner for 7 women near the Fontainebleu

rjlebed Oct 24, 2011 02:12 PM

Looking for a nice place for dinner near the Fontainebleu. We will be eating in the restaurants in the hotel fairly often so looking for a place near enough to possibly walk but a short cab ride is good as well. Italian, Seafood, whatever. Not UBER fancy but quiet enough to talk and good food. Thanks.

    1500 degrees is fancy but it is very good and in walking distance.

    Second indomania.

      I wouldn't call 1500° "UBER fancy" though, and it's one of the few places that will be walking distance. I'm also an Indomania fan.

      You could also go north, not walking distance but there are a number of places around 71st Street. I've actually had some good meals at Canyon Ranch and it's a pretty place (and doesn't really feel too much like deprivation despite the spa influence and the calorie counts on the menu).

      If that's not your speed, maybe instead go to Las Vacas Gordas for Argentine parrillada. You'll be thankful there are no calorie counts there.

      Cafe Prima Pasta is OK - not great, not terrible - for Italian. Tamarind Thai is also about the same (not great not terrible, though among the better Thai options in town).

        I don't think any restaurant in miami is uber fancy. My definition being it requires jacket and tie for men.

        Might as well add nobu or bond st in the short cab ride options.
