We are coming down to Miami for a long weekend, a weekend of good eating and football. I know a couple of chefs in the area and they have made some recommendations, but I would like the local Chowhound view on some things too.
We will be down from Friday, Oct 19, through Monday, Oct 22. Our hotel is in SoBe.
Our set plans include:
Friday: Probably happy hour or early drinks at Club Deuce
Saturday: Dinner at Michy’s, might try Clarke’s in the afternoon
Sunday:Tailgating and Dolphins/Pats game
We NEED suggestions for:
Lunch/drinks Friday: Miami or Miami beach. We will have a car, so we open to any suugestions between the airport and SoBe. We get in early morning and checkin is not until the afternoon.
Of course prefer seafood, or Latin/Cuban/Salvadorian, something along those lines. If there is a happening place for food AND drinks. We are very open to that.
We are still undecided about dinner Friday. Have been leaning toward Michael’s, but not sure.
Saturday: Will need rec’s for breakfast and drinks and food again needed in the afternoon. Nothing too heavy, as Chef said they will be setting us with a special tasting menu at Michy’s.
Sunday: We would prefer not to eat at the hotel and will be tailgating. So is there a good breakfast place within walking distance of the National in SoBe?
Sorry for the long post. Feel free to make rec’s for some or all of it.
Thanks in advance for your help.
