We are heading to Miami for the Art Basel in December and have opted to stay in the Sunny Isle area (to get away from the crowds and party scene). However, as I started my search for restaurants, I was only able to find a few chow worthy reccomendations for that area (Il Mulino, Timo, Yakko San, Gourmet Diner); the majority of the restaurants that are on our list (Michy's , Michael's Genuine, Andu , Ortanique, Sardinia, Joes Stone Crab as well as an assortment of cheaper cuban joints) are so far away. While I don't mind driving, I'm afraid the traffic congestion will maybe not make it worth it. So two questions: Are there more restuarants that I am missing on my list (i.e. more ethnic cuban/russian places) for the Sunny Isle area? Or should I bite the bullet and stay in SOBE (or Bricknell, Bar Harbour) so I can be closer to the restaurant scene?
