Hello, I'm having a hard time deciding between these restaurants - this is not my first time in Miami - but probably will be another 2 years before my next trip so I want to make sure I get the right mix of restaurants. In our previous trips we have tried Michy's, Michael's, Joe's, Yakko San, Solea +Mr. Chow (only because we were staying in the hotel, not out of choice), Hakkasan, Puerto Sagura, Hiro, Bourbon Steak
We are staying in the high 60's and Collins with no plans for a car. However, if we are looking at $60 cab rides for each meal, I will reconsider and get a car. There is just no place to eat around our hotel except for cheaper local ethnic restaurants.
Lunch - Joe's (we will be there beginning of September - should I skip Joe's altogether? I know it is not the season but read about the Alaskan crabs legs...). Love Joe's, I think I will almost be mad at myself for not going there
Dinner - Naoe (though might be too far of a cab ride? Mapquest says 11 minutes, last time we tried to walk in for the last seating...didn't work)
Brunch - Michaels
Dinner - TBD (we have never done the SOBE scene before, except for an ill fated stay at the W so thought it might be fun to try a restaurant that is in the hotel in case we want to stay for post dinner drinks). However, I do not want to sacrifice food for ambiance - so maybe which one has the best food?
Lunch - TBD
The restaurants that I would like to try Hakkasan (actually, not really, not into Pan Asian but will make an exception if someone tells me it is really good), Casa Tua, Cecconi's, Sugarcane. We are from NYC so would like to avoid sister restaurants (Bond, Scarpetta, Nobu, unless the one in MIami is better than NYC). Thanks for your help! Too many choices, not enough time!
