Cultures collide in the most delicious way possible at Capri Sushi and Italian. From house specialty sushi rolls to rich risottos, pizzas, and pastas, the chefs prove their grasp of both Italian and Japanese cuisine. Other original mash-ups include the Capri Asian pasta, which is tossed in a sweet and spicy soy sauce with seared ahi tuna, and the orange pecan french toast. All of the cuisine is kosher.
Café food goes kosher at Montefiore Café & Restaurant. This breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot’s French- and Italian-inspired menus contain only Cholev Yisroel and Pas Yisroel food, all certified by Kosher Miami supervision. And that includes everything from the chocolate croissant and cheesy mushroom crêpe to the paninis, pastas, and personal-sized pizzas. Montefiori’s team includes English, Hebrew, Spanish, and French speakers who can accommodate a wide variety of guests and share in how weird the word “cushion” sounds out loud.
The founders of Pizza Dude got the idea for their business from an unexpected source—Cosmo Kramer from the '90s sitcom Seinfeld. Inspired by the potential for fun and interaction, they ran with Kramer's idea to open a pizza place where customers make their own pies. The eatery's "Kramer experience" enables diners to build their own pizzas with ingredients brought to their tables. For the "traditional experience," guests approach Pizza Dude's counter to watch staffers assembled their custom pies.
In the pizza-making process, saucy creations materialize out of a choice of white, wheat, or gluten-free dough, six sauces, and more than 40 toppings. The menu also shows the blueprints to Pizza Dude's signature pizzas, including the Rio Bravo with free-range chicken, jalapenos, and cilantro. When it comes time to cook pizzas, Pizza Dude's team pops them into a high-speed conveyor oven that gets crusts browned and cheese bubbling in just five minutes.
The culinary wizards at DolceVino, nestled away in the Mediterranean-inspired Claridge Hotel, conjure up a dinner menu filled with hearty, old-world Italian fare. Diners can pledge allegiance to pasta’s arch-nemesis, antipasti, with dishes such as caprese salad ($12) or the antipasto all’italiana with its cornucopia of cold cuts and cheese ($15). Pro-pasta forks, on the other hand, can twirl among the tendrils of the linguine prosciutto e fondue, which combines asparagus and prosciutto with linguine noodles in a parmesan fondue sauce ($16). Meanwhile, the pistachio-encrusted sea bass ($28) lets diners sample the flavors of the Mediterranean without having to pilfer a mermaid’s lunch pail. Indulge sweet teeth with selections from the dessert menu, which includes a delightfully dulcet tiramisu ($7). Dinner is served daily from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Nestled inside the Red South Beach Hotel, Barok draws sun-kissed tourists and non-vacationers alike into a pristine dining room for fresh seafood and elegant Italian cuisine. Chefs grill filet mignon, sauté plump bay scallops for their specialty seafood risotto, and crown juicy burgers with slices of brie. Above the dining room, bold crimson chandeliers stand out against the stark white floor, tablecloths, blinds, and chairs. Outside, patrons can lounge around patio tables alongside a shimmering poo to sip cocktails and hold up makeshift placards rating dives on a scale from 1 to 10.
