I'm coming back to Miami for another conference this week. Will still be staing in the Dadeland area. I'll have a car this time so am hoping to try some good eats.
Last time in SoBe, I ate at Ice Box Cafe and LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I only had two meals in the area so not much to compare it to. On this trip, I'll have time for a couple of meals in the area. Can anybody offer any suggestions that may be similar in price and quality as Ice Box? I don't care for sushi, Asian, or Italian and would like something Miami-ish. I'm sure everybody says that.
How is Balan's? I read about this in my Fodors guidebook. Worth it or not?
Also, I'll be spending a day in Key Biscayne. I read about a place called Bayside Seafood Hut? Is it worthwhile? Any other place for seafood (shrimp, fish, NOT crabs, etc) that is better? Preferably a local spot, clean, good food, casual. Or any non-seafood place is good too. Any good breakfast places around here?
Loads of thanks,
