I spent about six months in Miami several years ago. I discovered this restaurant called Hoflinger & Chiarini--owned by some Ecuadorians. It was not just the best restaurant I found in Miami, but I'd have to say it was my favorite restaurant anywhere. Its difficult to say why--every dish was unexpectedly good, no matter how good I expected it to me. And the atmosphere was elegant, tasteful, and totally unpretentious.
Anyway, I've been looking for it on Zagat, on the web, anywhere, but I can't find it. Has anyone heard of it? Is it still there? Is it still just as good?
