I will be visiting Miami with my mum in May. We land from New Orleans the day before her birthday and I would love to take her out somewhere special the day after,for both her birthday breakfast and dinner.
We really, really, dislike fancy-pants places though and much prefer informal ones. We like good, fresh, local food, nice drinks and a lively atmosphere, with a decent view if possible but we really don't like places where the look of the food on the plate is better than the taste.
I guess that's hard to find in (almost, I could recommend tons of central good places in London) any touristic neighborhood and we are ready to travel for food although maybe not too far, as we will not have a car.
No Italian restaurants if possible, we eat Italian at home a lot :O)
Thanks in advance,
