An out-of-the-way location (you need a taxi to get here from Ocean Drive or Collins Ave), but still in South Beach means that you will encounter just as many locals as tourists (if not more of the former) at this "sushi-pub." And that is a good...

So I decided to try Barton G "The Restaurant" at a friend's suggestion. The presentations are no less than over the top and the food is pretty good. I won't say it's the best spot in Miami but it's certainly a fun dining spot. I found the lobster...

I hate shopping. There, I said it. However, sometimes while traveling you need a few things right? So, to minimize my pain, I like to go to places that know what I need and what I like. BABALU is one such place. It's tiny, it's unisex, it's chic,...
