Miami Girl turned New Yorker could use some advice!

janie | Feb 12, 2007 09:33 PM

Haven't been to Miami in almost 2 years--usually go once a year, and grew up there...but have been living in NYC for many years...Need some current advice..will be staying in the Aventura area which is not renowned for their food...will be there for several days...looking for inexpensive to moderate in price...

Have tried in the area:
Pilar--which I liked alot, reasonable, fresh, good portions..

Timo has been recommended but heard it's kinda hit or miss...How is Bissaleh?

Would really like a great seafood recomendation...traditional, and nouvelle...

So far on my list to try is:
Las Culabrinas--the flagler street or Coconut Grove location? Which is better? for cuban..
Tom's Place barbecue--West Palm?--this is probably too far...

What about Havana Harry's--any good?

Can easily travel to South Beach, Miami Beach...Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood--Etc...

Really like Bugatti's in the Gables, and Ragazzi Cafe in Surfside (must have their Ricotta cheesecake when I'm there)

Basically I'm looking for something good that is also a good value...not into trendy places with tiny portions, and pretentions...

Any cusine but not Japanese...Also, is there such a good thing as good Indian food in Miami...the place I read about that moved to North Miami I believe, is very expensive..

Thanks for any help...
