I will be in Miami for a conference in early May. (The meals during the conference are taken care of. Unfortunately.) After that, I'm going to spend a night or two in South Beach and blow off some steam. I'll be flying solo at that point, so would like some recommendations for places in the South Beach area where I can grab a spot at the bar and have a good dinner. Not sure what nights yet, but it will be either Friday and Saturday OR Saturday and Sunday nights (or maybe just one of them). So, yeah, those are busy nights, I know.
Also, if you would like to recommened a good time to go as well, please do. I wouldn't mind eating later, but if these are hip spots, I don't want to eat so late that the bar is so full, that people are bumping into me. Yup, I'm looking for the perfect balance where there are people around to talk to, but not so many that it ruins dinner.
Thanks for any suggestions.
