South Beach (north) eats?
My wife is running the marathon this weekend in Miami and we're staying on Collins Ave, up between 17th and 18th Streets. I'm not even sure if that's still considered South Beach, but that's where we'll be and we'll be car-less.
Anyone have any suggestions in that area for "don't miss" places? No restrictions! Walking distance is a plus, but not a requirement.
If we have one big (cab ride) meal, should it be Michaels Genuine?
Yes it is south beach
Good restaurants in walking distance otherwise no particular order
Osteria del Teatro
BLT Steak (have not been in since the chef change)
The Alibi (cheesesteaks)
Further but good in south beach (within 2 miles no particular order)
Any of the Pubbellies
Burger & Beer
Joes Stone Crab
For a big cab ride Michaels or Michy's are good choices, though I doubt it is really worth the cost and inconvenience to do this.
I forgot alta mare in south beach. Haven is not bad either (but I would go to one of the ones I mentioned before including alta mare first).
If you want to do a short cab ride, I would recommend going to either 1500 degrees, scarpetta or hakkasan (I prefer lunch on the weekend at hakkasan).
