Located just along historic Coral Way, Fresco California Bistro serves a wide variety of dishes from Italian to Mexican, all flavored with a California twist. The interesting mix of ingredients, particularly in the salads, will leave you wanting to try everything. Be careful how much you order; the portions are very generous. An enclosed terrace is also provided so that guests can enjoy the shade of Coral Way. Selections include gourmet pizza, salads, pastas, fish, chicken, and monster-sized burritos. The California Orange Salad, consisting of chicken, mandarin oranges, avocado, and other creative additions, is highly recommended.
A unique and constantly changing menu makes Osteria del Teatro a winner with restaurant critics and local diners. Surrounded by countless Italian eateries, Osteria del Teatro manages to stand out from the crowd. You'll find a typical South Beach crowd here: young, well-dressed folks preparing for a night on the town. The atmosphere is casually elegant. Pay special attention to the daily specials which often feature delectable fresh local seafood.
Toni's Tokyo Cuisine and Sushi Bar is certainly not new to South Beach. The restaurant has been around since before the revival of this trendy vacation area, and is still going strong. Sashimi is fresh and beautifully cut, with a great selection of raw fish available (churasi, tuna, yellowtail, octopus, shrimp, etc.). Sushi rolls are also delicious. Nigiri rolls (1 piece) range from USD1.50-4, while Maki rolls (6 pieces) range from USD4-9. Cooked fish is an option for anyone not comfortable with the raw delicacies. Located on Washington Avenue, the restaurant draws a hip, pre-club crowd.
Whether you need to pick up some fresh seafood to take home for a family dinner or sit down and have something prepared for you, Bahama's is ready to accommodate. Everything here is fresh. You will find standard seafood dishes with Cuban influences including escabeche, breaded and fried pickled king fish with onion-and-pepper marinade. This is a casual, family-style operation.
This may look like a hole-in-the-wall, but do not let the bars on the window scare you away. There is nothing dangerous about this little Spanish restaurant, unless you are on a diet. Be sure to order some tapas, as they may prove to be enough for an entire meal. You will not believe the deals here: chicken and rice with shrimp, seafood soup, and other delicious dishes come for only a few dollars here. The dining area is tiny, with only a few tables and a counter space.
The ambiance here may not be particularly authentic, but the food is. Chips and salsa are excellent, with three types of deliciously spicy blends to choose from. Standard Mexican fare is the featured food here including burritos, chimichangas, tacos, tamales, fajitas and the like. The restaurant feels somewhat like a chain, but it is not one. The decor and clientele are both quite casual.
Flanigan's is a fisherman's haven, but attracts a pretty diverse crowd despite the prevailing theme. The business crowd occupies the wooden booths and shiny-varnished tables for weekday lunches and happy hour; sports lovers come to watch the game, any game, and wash it down with pitchers of beer and seafood; nicely dressed bar-hoppers come to finish their night in the Grove with a feast of chicken wings and nachos. The restaurant is casual, reasonably priced, and offers a wide variety of traditional bar food, seafood, sandwiches, and alcoholic beverages.
This restaurant is teeming with people, old, young, and in-between. Its proximity to the Coconut Grove Playhouse makes it especially popular with theatre-goers. The decor is casual but comfortable and most seating is outside. The menu is primarily upscale American cuisine, with a few dishes from the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Diners might choose the jerk chicken, a lentil plate, or a pasta dish. Located in the trendy shopping and restaurant district, this is a pleasant café to enjoy the ambiance of an historic town.
50 Alhambra Plaza Hyatt Regency Hotel Coral Gables, FL 33134

While a new and much-hyped restaurant opens up in trendy South Beach almost every week, few have as many things going for them as this wildly popular cafe. Located on charming Espanola Way, this restaurant is in prime people-watching territory. While the street is not as determinedly trendy as Ocean Drive, the bohemian factor makes it almost more interesting and definitely more comfortable. Classic trattoria fare is what you are going to get here. Wood-fired pizzas, inexpensive pastas and hearty sandwiches are all good choices.
