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.

While it may seem like a contradiction in terms, the Miami Herald dubbed Tundra Las Olas the "latest hot spot" for its arctic-themed decor, with an "impressive…eclectic menu by chef Bryan Lamblin." Small cold plates include the tundra shellfish, made with crab claws, white prawns, and Willapa Bay oysters arranged on a plate made of ice, echoing the sculptures scattered around the room and lengthening the lives of visiting snowmen. Hot plates feature stuffed prawns and Kobe-style beef meatballs, and entrees fuse sea-bound or land-locked fare with European or Asian seasonings, such as lobster sauce, jalapeño béarnaise, or plantain butter.

The cool, glossy tile behind the bar mirrors chandeliers shaped as if they were formed from ice. Icy blue lighting makes specialty drinks glow, while white and silver art carry the arctic theme throughout the space.

Bongos Cuban Café is known for its delectable food—the eatery won the Pat LaFrieda award for Best Lechon at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival Swine & Wine Event in 2013. It's also known for its famous mojitos made with fresh mint and sugarcane. At Bongos Cuban Café, the energy of Old Havana pulses through the air with Latin music and aromas of authentic Cuban dishes. Vaca Frita with grilled onions, Ropa Vieja, Arroz con pollo, and Paella with fresh scallops, lobster, chorizo, chicken, and mussels are a few specialties.

Cars embark on a cleansing journey as they slowly creep into Majestic Car Wash's 110-foot tunnel. Gentle machines whip and wipe cars clean with the aid of powerful cleaning products, and autos finally end their excursion under the shade of a large awning. Here, technicians can buff exteriors dry by hand, clean and restore headlights in less than an hour, and offer à la carte detailing services to protect cars from the tree sap and bugs attempting to annex their hood ornaments.
