Sunny Isles, Aventura, etc.- need recs for reasonable restaurants
Have used the guidebooks and find they don't list everyday restaurants that local people enjoy. We love all ethnic foods and would love suggestions as we are new residents in the area. Thanks, in advance, for your help...
Captain Jim's Seafood, 12950 South Dixie Highway, North Miami for freshest seafood. Ignore the neighborhood.
Timo, 17624 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles for Mediterranean/Italian cuisine.
Cheen Huaye Restaurant, 15400 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami Beach for authentic 'Mayan' Mexican cuisine.
Copper Chimney Indian Cuisine, 18090 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles for Indian/South Indian/Indo-Chinese cuisine.
Agree with Southocean and would add
Chef Philip Ho for dim sum lunch and for dinner as well.
Yakko-San-make sure you check out the specials board or ask server.
Bourbon Steak- grab a burger in the lounge or enjoy dinner in the restaurant, One of best in 305
Kings County Pizza
Makoto- Great Sushi (Bal Harbour)
Epicure Market- for the best tuna salad. (regular not fat free of course)
J&G Grill (St. Regis) desserts are a must do
Rice Asian House-Crispy duck w/ garlic sauce
Sage Bagel & Deli- best bagels in town
Alaska Coffee Roasting
re: restless tongue
Sage Plaza, home of Sage Bagels and Deli, was sold to the RK mini-mall development folks in February of 2012 for $5.5M. The change in ownership and oversight might account for the decline in the quality of their bagels, which I, too, have noted.
In other Sage Plaza news, there has been a "Five Guys Coming" sign intermittently in front of the plaza for a couple months, as well as the filing of an application to the City of Hallandale Beach for a variance for a "Five Guys" sign to be placed on the property.
re: The Chowfather
I forgot to mention Burger Fi (Great Shake Shack knockoff)
Also in the vicinity and worth checking out under your ethnic request Chapultepec (Mexican in Hallandale) and King Palace for their BBQ roast pork.
I have not been but have heard very good things from a reliable/respected chef regarding Ricky Thai Bistro (North Miami)
Oh and stop by Pastry is Art (North Miami)
Between these 2 posts you have a very good list, I'd add:
- Josh's Deli (Bal Harbour)
- Panya Thai (North Miami Beach)
