Will be in Miami Beach (Best Western on Collins Ave.) at the end of the month with my wife and kids. I'm looking for good to great ethnic places to take the kids for cheap dinners. We love Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese as well as others (Latin/Cuban, Chinese, Italian, Middle Eastern, etc.). Could you please recommend some restaurants near the hotel that are good, cheap and ethnic? I would also like to go to Little Havana (a place where my wife's grandfather spent time after immigrating from Cuba in the 50's) and have lunch. What's the best Cuban restaurant there?
I also plan on taking my wife out for one evening and would love some recommendations in South Beach or Miami for drinks, some live Latin/Cuban music, dancing and a place for a good, but not really expensive meal. I have been told there are endless outdoor bars with live music in South Beach but would love a recommendation for music and/or dancing. Thanks, I really appreciate it. I'm looking forward to some relaxation in your fair city before returning to work for the beginning of the school year.
