I'll be in Ft. Lauderdale for a few days and was hoping someone could suggest a great restaurant in Miami (jacket not required). I'm going with two friends who are less adventurous, but the right place can accommodate most people. I don't care about price, though I do want quality food that is creative. Must have a good wine list and availability for a week from Friday. My fall back option is always Gotham Steak because I know my friends will love it, but I want to avoid steak houses.
In NY, I would typically go to Le Bernadin or Eleven Madison Park for a special meal like this, which are probably at a higher price point then anywhere in Miami.
I've heard good things about Michael's genuine. Someone recommended Scarpetta, but I never really liked the NY one.
Any suggestions are much appreciated.
