I have a large group of women (approx. 20) coming into Miami in May for a weekend. I live here, but have actually eaten very little on South Beach. I'm looking for a restaurant on the beach that could adeptly handle a large group for dinner (limited menus would be okay, as long as the food is worthwhile), as well as a venue for brunch.
I'm not looking for any particular cuisine, or any particular price range, although probably nothing more than $50 pp for entrees and appetizers for dinner, and $40 pp for brunch w/o alcohol. I'm also flexible on the atmosphere spectrum (casual to formal) as long as the food speaks for itself. I was thinking Talula might be a decent option.
Any recommendations (or negative experiences with large groups) would be much appreciated.
