South Florida

My wife and I will be vacationing in Miami Beach / Aventura during the first week of December. Does anyone have any restaurant recommendations for that area?

          Thanks - anything else particularly good in Aventura/Hollwood?

          1. re: jpr54_1

            Ate a good falafel at Pita Plus. It merits its popularity with a Weekday lunch crowd (many locals who don't look Jewish to me) with very fresh pita and luffa, good falafel and low prices.

            Picked up diner to eat cold at the hotel at Lankry's and the look of the place really raised my hopes that it would be Moroccan home cooking the the way 212Grill in Manhattan is Yemenite and Cafe Shawreen in Rockville (near D.C.) is Persian. It looks Moroccan. They packed up couscous with meatballs and three salads (bean, carrot and beet) for my lunch the next day in the hotel room. There were two women have lunch and exclaiming over the soup at one of the tiny tables. Maybe it was Moroccan. The couscous looked Moroccan, but it had no Moroccan spices. Vegetables, couscous and meatballs had been cooked separately and the vegetables seemed to be flavored with packaged powdered parve "chicken soup". It was American home cooking, not Moroccan. The chick pea and vegetable salads were similarly dressed in vinaigrette - with lots of garlic but no Maghrebi spices. Disappointing.

              sorry to hear the food was disappointing

              There is a large Sephardic Community in Hollywood
