Hello Miami Chowhounders! Philadelphia Hound here.

I will be staying at the Hotel Astor (956 Washington Avenue) for a long weekend in January.

Last time I depended on Chowhound for my trip to Montreal, I ended up having an amazing culinary experience but missed out on everything else!

So this time I am looking for reccomendations that are convient to the hotel where I am staying or great attractions. I don't tend to like to do very touristy things, but I love shopping at boutiques, looking at architecture, etc.

Restaurants and cocktails are a must, but the restaurants must be very vegetarian friendly. I do not eat any meat or fish but love cheese, etc. My boyfriend eats everything. We are also looking to stay within a tight budget. Most meals (especially breakfast and lunch) should be under $15 a person and one or two meals can be a bit more. We prefer interesting places to over the top mega-restaurants.
