South Beach Suggestions
Will be in South Beach next month celebrating my wife's birthday. We're staying at the James Hotel. I need two or three stellar restaurant suggestions for her birthday. Preferably on the strip near the hotel.
As a side note any places that are a must try (cheap eats) feel free to pass along.
Restaurants near you
Lure (I actually like the Dutch better but lure is right next door and is solid -- what is weird was the quality of the sushi at lure is surprisingly good -- I would eat this at the sushi bar though if you go that route)
Restaurant Michael Schwartz
You should also consider Oolite which is a little further from you.
Cheap Eats (no particular order except the first two are very near you)
Joe's takeout (fried chicken)
1826 was a tough call ranking wise b/c I've only been one time. I have a good feel for where it belongs but need to get back there. I really enjoyed the dishes I had. I've done Bazaar several times and hit that menu hard. Big fan but haven't been back recently primarily b/c I was avoiding during season.
