Best Restaurants in Miami-Miami BeachOur favorites include some of this destination's best restaurants—from fine dining to simple fare.

Restaurants throughout Miami wisely take advantage of the abundance of fresh, locally grown (and freshly caught) ingredients and the diverse cuisines of the city's international population, blending components of each in creative, innovative ways.

The warm colors of the brick walls and the wood-beamed ceiling, pottery, artwork and traditional Spanish music are as evocative of Spain as the cuisine at Casa Juancho Restaurant. The restaurant's tapas menu, with more than 30 choices, serves as a prelude to the regular menu, which features fresh fish prepared Spanish style, aged Black Angus beef and, for dessert, crema Catalana, a custard dish with a crunchy, caramelized coating. The restaurant is known for its rare Armagnacs, Spanish brandies and large selection of wines from Spain.

Several miles southwest, off the main road in a small strip shopping center, is Tropical Chinese Restaurant, which many regard as Miami's finest Chinese dining experience. Finding the restaurant the first time might be a little difficult, but once there you will be rewarded with a sumptuous Hong Kong-style meal. The comprehensive menu at this elegantly simple establishment accommodates connoisseurs of Chinese food as well as those who prefer traditional American fare. Be adventurous and try the braised sea cucumber with spicy sauce or indulge in the shredded chicken with shark fin soup or the popular black bean lobster. The 56 items on the dim sum menu are sure to tempt. An open kitchen allows diners to view the chefs in action.
