We'll be visiting South Beach for the first time in a few weeks (coming in from NYC), and will touch down at MIA at around 11pm on a Friday. Assuming that we get to our hotel (Essex House on Collins and 10th St) by midnight or so, could you recommend some places where we can still get a bit of good food to go with our drinks? I was thinking about walking over to where Pubbelly and/or Yardbird are located, but wanted to ask if these places would be jam-packed by then.
Also, can one actually walk from Essex House to Pubbelly? We won't have a car, so will opt for a taxi if that's more practical.
