Recommendations near Miami International Airport

EllenR Dec 25, 2013 11:13 AM

Staying two nights at an airport hotel. Anything good near the airport or a 10 minute cab ride away. Price not an issue. Would love stone crabs.

    Frod is right.....And in 15 minutes you can be at Joe's Stone Crabs on South Beach if the traffic is right......Versailles for Cuban....Basilico for Italian.....Grazianos / Coral Gables for Argentinian fare.....Design District for Michael's Genuine......Southern Swine in Coral Gables for BBQ.....

    Many options.....Miami isn't a particularly big place.....a lot of choices within 10 to 20 minutes away......

      Just going through your great suggestions. I love the look of Michael's. I have more than one night. Can you think of a similar - fresh, eclectic - restaurant in the area? And do you have a favorite Peruvian restaurant?

      Here are a couple existing threads on the subject:

      A 10 (maybe 15) minute cab ride will put you in range of Coral Gables in one direction and the Design District in another which present a number of options.

        I think we can safely add blackbrick to the midtown/dd list now...That place is really good.

        Btw- off topic- since I don't do twitter, the ones I would be looking at would be
        15 East

          Completely agree on BlackBrick - doing very good stuff.

          We've got to get you on twitter.
