First, I know nothing about Miami dining.
We will be in Miami on a Monday afternoon. I would like an area where we can park the car, start around 10h30-11h00, and spend three to fours hours walking to four or five great restaurants in a safe neighborhood/area. I like to avoid chains. Any type of food is fine. We are from NC, so I feel like we should enjoy some of the great ethnic food options we do not have here (in my specific area). Money is not a huge obstacle although I do not want to drop $100 at each stop. We might do a plate, cocktail/glass of wine at each spot and move on. Any help/advice, including the area and restaurant names, is greatly appreciated.
We look forward to Miami!
