Michael's Genuine Food & Drink

About:
130 NE 40th St, Atlas Plaza, Miami, FL 33137 305-573-5550

Description: DESIGN DISTRICT. Fresh produce enhances the fine fare served at this contemporary restaurant, and varied serving sizes, ranging from small to extra-large ensure that you get just enough to satisfy your appetite. The only problem here is that you might have too many creative choices, from wood roasted sweet onion filled with ground lamb and apricots to crispy beef cheek with whipped celeriac, celery salad and chocolate reduction. A comfortable bar, offering wine by the glass, beer and cocktails, is an additional draw.

Nexxt Cafe

About:
700 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139 305-532-6643

The comfortable outdoor seating area still affords a bustling view and is surrounded by lush greenery. In the afternoon and late evening, regulars come in for creamy frozen coffee concoctions in a variety of tasty flavors. The rich frozen mocha is a top-seller. The rotating selection of Italian-style mini-pastries makes the perfect accompaniment. There is a nice lunch menu as well. No reservations.
