Our September Miami Beach Expedition

September 6, 2012

Our September Epicurean Expedition includes a few of our favorite places in Miami Beach offering generous menus at reasonable prices.

Breakfast
11 Street Diner, 1065 Washington Avenue. While Guy Fieri may have hit a niche somewhere between "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" (this is a funky dive-y diner), there are so few spots where the 24 hour dining experience is so vividly captured than this steel dining car transplanted to South Beach from Jersey and making a scene day and night on South Beach. Grab a stool, a short stack and watch what happens!

Afternoon Action
Bernie's L.A. Cafe, 1570 Alton Road. One of the biggest splashes of Summer 2010 (especially at SB-USA headquarters) is the launch of Bernie Matz's casual new cafe on the west side of South Beach where the tacos, fajitas and daily specials rock our world. Bernie's Books & Books fans should dash from the relative doldrums of Lincoln Road Mall to this tiny but mighty good spot ASAP!

Brunch
La Marea, 1220 Ocean Drive. Experience the "Lazy Breakfast" menu which is served daily until 2pm for folks who need a little extra time to get things going in the morning. Chef Gonzalo Rivera invites you to dine on the patio overlooking Ocean Drive starting with a nutritiously inspired cocktail, deviled eggs with smoked salmon and huevos rancheros on sweet potato tortillas with red and green sauce and cotija cheese.

Dinner
Prime 112 / 112 Ocean Drive / So hectic with the evening crowds, this heavy hitting see and be scene dinner spot is a welcome relief from the Miami heat serving burgers, steaks and that transcendent lobster bisque starting weekdays at noon. Share a jumbo lump crab cake appetizer, the Kobe beef sliders and the Maine lobster cobb salad.

LIV, 4441 Collins Avenue. Miami Beach's landmark resort the Fontainebleau invites you to hitch your wagons to the Camel Rider as International DJ and Producer Jared Dietch brings over 15 years of hardcore New York City club styling to the decks. Sirius radio fans will thrill to the arrival of their favorite mixmaster tonight!
