Guests at Caf? Vico find themselves dining under the watchful eyes of A-list celebrities, both past and present. That?s because nearly every inch of the eatery?s mustard-yellow walls is covered by black-and-white headshots of such famous faces as Marlon Brando and Michael Caine. These photos, along with a plethora of burnished wooden wine racks and baked terra-cotta floors, flow throughout each of Caf? Vico?s four dining rooms?the VIP room, the Old room, the Middle room, and the Coliseum room?tying the interior into a cohesive, welcoming space.

Chef and owner Marco Vico only enhances the restaurant?s visual appeal with his authentic, handcrafted Italian dishes and old-school charm?according to South Florida Food and Wine, he kisses the hand of every lady who walks in. The menu coddles sensory receptors with many classic entrees such as eggplant parmesan, veal piccata, and osso buco. Its real draw, however, is the fresh pasta, which the chef cuts into thick strips of fettuccini, round ravioli, or fancy bow ties for his attentive wait staff. An extensive wine list supplements Caf? Vico?s tasty eats with bottles from around the world and more than 20 varieties available by the glass, and a new bar area features live entertainment nightly.

After nearly 20 years under the command of Top Chef star Chef Carlos Fernandez, Hi-Life Café has recently ascended into a new realm under the rule of Chef Virgil Woodard, a master of new-wave American cuisine. According to a feature in the Sun Sentinel Woodard's training in architecture and keen eye for art and symmetry become apparent upon first glimpse of his dishes, each embellished with his signature hand-carved vegetable garnishes. Yet the ornate frills are only the start of the meal’s elegance. Fresh jalapeños packed with shrimp and wrapped in bacon—Cajun Kisses—prelude a full menu of classic American fare with an upscale twist. He transforms pastas with unique sauces, such as a southwestern spin on bolognese and a classic mushroom and madeira wine sauce infused with brie, and he pairs high-end strip steak, pork loin, and seafood with fresh, internationally inspired accoutrements.

The interior of Hi-Life Café mirrors the chic style of the entrees. Candlelight flickers across tasteful urban art photography from John Fifield and Streetmurals.net, creating the ideal ambiance for a dinner date or impromptu murder-mystery game. A granite-topped wine bar hosts a selection of sips, as well as fresh flower arrangements rivaled only by the elegant roses adorning each and every table.

Asia Bay serves the "best sushi in this town," according to actor Alec Baldwin, who tweeted his recommendation while in Fort Lauderdale to film Rock of Ages, according to pbpulse. The man behind this A-list-worthy cuisine is executive chef and co-owner Peter Hepp, who according to Miami New Times "is hip to the aesthetic of clean lines, vivid colors, and brightly delineated flavors." Hepp's chefs drizzle the menu's more than 60 sushi and sashimi plates with colorful sauces as carefully as painters adorn canvas, yielding dishes that are as nice to look at as they are to eat. The 50-seat dining room operates under a similarly modern theme, with large picture windows, white leather chairs, and curved-back banquettes which Social Miami calls "minimalist-chic."

Outside, a patio held up by stilts lifts diners above the rippling waves of the Tarpon River, helping garner Asia Bay an OpenTable Diners' Choice Award for Best Outdoor Dining. Here the decor invites relaxation with large parasols, old-fashioned street lamps, and seagulls who will give backrubs for fresh-cut sashimi.

Dapur’s chef and designer, Edi Mulyanto, draws on culinary traditions from countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Japan while chopping, sautéing, and simmering Pan Asian tapas and entrees. A reviewer for the Miami Herald praises the elaborate sushi rolls, which include lobster and rock shrimp, as “crowd-pleasing” and predicts that the 7,000-square-foot venue will enjoy “sweet success.” Many of the menu’s ingredients, according to Edge, spring from Mulyanto’s own garden or sorcerer nephew before ending up in small plates flavored with lime juice and garlic ponzu jelly.

A giant golden Buddha statue surrounds diners lounging on the bar’s cherry-red couches or practicing casual heists with the modern art hung on the dining room’s purple walls. High ceilings support dangling chandeliers, and soft lighting spotlights artistically arranged plants and baskets. In addition to delighting eyes during dinner and drinks, this elegant interior also hosts Dapur's nightly events and theme nights. Stop in on Wine Down Wednesday and lift a glass to an all-you-can-drink wine special or fight off the impending work week on Sake To Me Sunday with cups of half-price sake.

A 1,200-gallon aquarium greets diners as soon as they enter Tokyo Blue, an upscale Pan-Asian restaurant located inside the Ocean Manor. Situated on 200 feet of private beach, this elegant eatery features modern flourishes such as glowing glass columns, glossy blue floors, and a full bar illuminated by blue lights. Once the clock strikes 10:30 p.m., a DJ helps transform this chic space into a hopping nightclub, where patrons can refuel with a late-night menu or journey onto a second-story patio ideal for basking in the ocean air and high-fiving the occasional flying fish.

Against this trendy backdrop, Chef Mai—who earned his cooking chops at the popular Miami restaurant Nobu—simmers tenderloin in green curry, drizzles shichimi butter on baked Maine lobster, and pan-sears Chilean sea bass in 25-year aged balsamic and teriyaki sauce. Meanwhile, sushi chef Jo skillfully assembles 30 specialty rolls, including classics such as the California roll as well as eclectic mash-ups such as the Mexican roll with shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy mayo, cream cheese, and sesame seeds.

Zaggora's founder Dessi was scrambling. She needed to lose a little weight before her wedding, but none of the weight loss products she used seem to move the needle. Eventually, she took matters into her own hands, inventing her own effective method for slimming down. Zaggora's multi-layer capris, tops, shorts, and blazers put the heat naturally emitted by the body during exercise to work burning more calories. A 2012?2013 study conducted by ETScience at University of Southern California showed users wearing Zaggora used less energy to achieve high cardio levels and burned anywhere from 6?18% more calories and than those wearing standard exercise clothing.

Made from a comfortable bioceramic material, the shorts' ThermoFit technology smoothes thighs and other dimple-prone areas by warming body tissues and increasing their metabolic rate. This process boosts energy expenditure before and after exercise, and aids in eliminating cellulite-causing toxins.
