I'm from Los Angeles and was in Miami for business. We needed a quick lunch and a friend recommended the Nexxt Cafe on Miracle Mile. He said that he went to their other location in South Beach and the food was great there, but that the service was slow.
I took his advice and we had our most pleasant meal of the trip. The food was excellent and the service was quick, courteous, and pleasant. The restaurant is a light, airy cafe that wasn't too loud. I would say that the biggest negative is the giant, overwhelming menu. Although it was strange for me to see Thai food next to Mexican food next to salads - our server Jen was very sweet and helped walk us through it. We decided to get a little bit of each cuisine.
Per Jen's recommendation we started with Avocado Wontons. They came out nice and hot and did not fall apart on the plate. They were served with an interesting tamarind sauce that added some sweetness to the unique dish.
I had the Kobe Beef Burger which came out slightly pink medium rare. The bun was nice and toasty and the burger itself was delicious. I asked for extra mushrooms and Jen brought a small, complimentary plate of the sauteed shrooms!
My friend got the Baja Chicken Tacos which was served as heaping plate of Mexican food. There was plenty of avacado on it (which was almost overkill given the fact that we had avacado as an appetizer) and tasted like the taco stands back in LA - which is a good thing.
The manager, Ron, even came by to check on us (which might happen all the time in Miami, but is interesting to me as an out-of-towner). In any event, I will be returning to Miami a couple more times over the next few months and will make sure to check out this restaurant and try more items off the giant menu.
