Was a little surprised at the automatic double doors when you first enter however the food was outstanding. We had several appetizers all delicious. The mofongo (both pork and lobster) were cooked to perfection. Very authentic Puerto Rican food!!!

From Our Editors

Though Benny Ojeda's kitchen is packed with a mélange of frying pans, butcher knives, pots, and spatulas, his most treasured tool might be his giant wooden mortar and pestle. It's this massive contraption that the skilled chef uses to make his renowned mofongo dish, a deliciously chewy concoction that was lauded by reporters from Miami New Times and featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives as well as The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Benny fills the tall mortar with fried plantains, garlic, olive oil, and housemade pork rinds, and then pounds the mixture into a fluffy pulp. He scoops his mofongos into wooden bowls, sending them out of the kitchen plain or topped with buttery lobster, crispy chicken, and juicy steak.

Diners eagerly await mofongos out in the colorful dining room, where water trickles down from an elegant stone fountain and walls are painted to resemble a rustic Puerto Rican village or a convincingly disguised space ship. Some sip on imported beers and fresh fruit juices, and others sample traditional dishes from Benny's native Cabo Rojo—dishes such as stewed pork belly, rice with pigeon peas, and seafood ceviche. Before meals are through, waiters offer guests a tiny cup of complimentary coquito, a creamy blend of coconut, rum, and cinnamon.

Miami Restaurant Guide

Nearly everyone knows Miami for its beaches, party atmosphere, and active nightlife. But, Miami's vibrant food scene should not be overlooked. This city has scads of restaurants, from tiny Cuban dives with only a few seats to four-star fusion restaurants with famous chefs.

Some of the best places to eat in Miami are the tiny little restaurants that few people notice or visit, simply because they do not realize that those darkened store fronts are restaurants. The Hole in the Wall Pub is one such restaurant, but the one thing about it that is not inconspicuous is its celebrity owner. Craig Erickson played for the Hurricanes, and he opened this restaurant as the type of place where his football-playing friends could watch a game and enjoy good grub at the same time. The dark woods, top-of-the-line televisions, and large arcade make it seem like someone's basement, but the quality food and service make it clear that this is one of the best restaurants around.

Dining in Miami with friends is easy thanks to restaurants like Josh's Deli. Chef Joshua Marcus decided that his restaurant needed a new image, which is why he reopened it under this name. Everything on the menu is homemade, and most of the menu choices remind guests of a traditional Jewish deli in New York City. Chef Marcus even offers homemade mustard for his mile-high sandwiches.

Eating in Miami is sometimes a special occasion, and few restaurants offer the elegant experience found at Bourbon Steak. Though it's best known for its wide selection of wines and aged steaks, it also offers some traditional Miami food, including fresh seafood. Some of the best dishes are comfort foods with a twist such as the macaroni and cheese with truffles.

Whether it's fresh seafood caught that morning, a quick sandwich, or comfort food like mom used to make, Miami restaurants offer some of the best food in the world.
