Fall is in the air and the possibility of
Lockout showing at the Lincoln Road Sci-Fi
Film Festival will surely thrill and delight you.
Elsewhere in Miami, art fans will crawl the streets
of Wynwood Saturday and get up extra early Sunday
morning to scan the trash and treasure at
Lincoln Road's Sunday flea market, but if you're
looking for the best restaurants (
http://www.southbeachmagazine.com/best-restaurants-south-beach/ ) to try while
at the Festival, here's a handy guide to point you
in the right direction.
GrillFish / 1444 Collins Avenue / Fresh local
seafood served hot off the grill with as little to
distract from the flavors of the sea can be found at
a surprisingly few restaurants on South Beach.
GrillFish provides a consistently good meal, helpful
service and a casual atmosphere in the very center
of the Art Deco district.
BLT Steak / 1440 Ocean Drive / Chef Laurent
Tourondel has created an empire of dynamic American
bistros across the country and his outpost on Ocean
Drive serves a seasonally inspired breakfast menu
starting at 7am. Enjoy a morning "pick me up" like a
white peach bellini cocktail with sparkling prosecco
followed by fresh, house-baked pastries, popovers,
and scones with eggs as you like them or smoked
salmon on a toasted bagel.
Osteria del Teatro / 1443 Washington Avenue /
One of the longest standing Italian restaurants on
South Beach, this is a spot to be pampered by the
waitstaff who will lead you through the night's
specials and deliver a top-notch meal in the heart
of the nightclub district. Expect classic dishes
served with style and understated elegance at this
busy storefront cafe still popular with a steady
stream of locals.
Joe's Stone Crab / 11 Washington Avenue/ The
excitement in the air is palpable as Joe's Stone
Crab begins the season this weekend serving
Florida's finest hard shell crab claws to a loyal
local following. The dining room opens Sundays from
4-10pm so arrive early or stop by late to avoid long
lines at the door. Be sure to try the crabs, the
chowder, the fried potatoes and onions and save room
for the frosty Key Lime pie for dessert.
Front Porch Cafe / 1418 Ocean Drive / Bring a
friend and split the sunny egg pizza and the spicy
breakfast burrito to enjoy a taste of the best of
both worlds at this popular beachfront sidewalk cafe
where the service is laid back, the sea breezes are
soothing and everything tastes really great.
De Rodriguez Ocean / 101 Ocean Drive / Miami's
favorite Latin Fusion chef Douglas Rodriguez
celebrates the opening of his new seafood restaurant
tonight at the Bentley Beach Hotel. This beachfront
restaurant has indoor and poolside seating to take
advantage of the balmy fall breezes and a 25 foot
ceviche & raw bar. Enjoy Florida-fresh sustainable
seafood and tropical drinks served with D-Rod's
