There are a lot of reasons to smile at Happy Wine. First and foremost is the wine selection, whose vastness makes sense when you consider the restaurant is actually the outgrowth of an acclaimed wine shop. Surrounded by shelf upon shelf of bottles from around the globe, visitors sit down at the Coconut Grove or Calle Ocho location and discover a menu of equal diversity. On it, pressed sandwiches stand out, including a chicken panini with swiss cheese, tomatoes, and garlic aioli. The food selection also features hot and cold tapas, from steamed mussels in spicy tomato broth to platters of Serrano ham and manchego cheese. On certain days diners can also enjoy Happy Wine's renowned paella. To make visits more memorable, the restaurant sometimes hosts special events, such as live music on Thursdays and Saturdays so guests don't have to use empty wine bottles to jam.
Executive Chef Massimo Giannattasio's career has taken him all over the world, cooking meals in Los Angeles, Northern Italy, and Miami, but perhaps the most important kitchen in which he worked is his mother's. At a young age, she taught him that a chef's intuition is as important as any measurement and that if a chef wears another chef's apron, he withers and dies. Chef Giannattasio and his staff rely on those early lessons in the kitchen of Cibo Wine Bar, where they've curated a menu of both traditional and modern Italian dishes.
Surrounded by columns of neatly stacked Chicago bricks, diners take their seats at tables made of sealed butcher block. Servers produce a wine list to rival a French baron's, and waiters bring out appetizers such as polenta fries or carpaccio. Pastas such as ravioli and gnocchi are hallmark dishes, and the chef prepares seasonal risottos year round. Tender cuts of veal and braised beef short ribs are served second. In addition, the kitchen can bake one of 15 gourmet pizzas for the table, with whole wheat options available.
Cibo Wine Bar won the Miami New Times' Best Wine Selection award in 2012. And once you step inside, it's easy to see why. A huge wine rack soars to the top of the restaurant's vaulted ceiling along one wall—it's so tall that Cibo's wine girl uses a harness and rope to reach the top. A vast, full-service bar pours wines and mixed drinks in the front. In the open kitchen, which is framed by exposed brick walls, chefs scurry to prepare meals, and curing meats hang in full sight of the diners.

Europe and Latin America do not share a border on most reputable maps, but for more than 15 years, they have converged at The Globe in the middle of Coral Gables. There, chef de cuisine Martin Taylor and sous chef Jacques Blacques make room on their menu for New England fish and chips and Argentinean churrasco, as well as pastas and hand-tossed pizzas. Throughout the day, alert noses might detect aromas of spanish chorizo, wasabi, and cognac-spiced dijon sauce suffusing the pub.
That eclectic edible geography is reflected in the décor. Vintage globes line the shelf above the polished wood bar, and mollify diners who refuse to accept the existence of a new Zealand. A curved staircase with a wrought-iron railing—reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa—provides a similar centerpiece to the bistro tables spread across the weathered wood floors. Resident musical director Rodolfo Zuniga adds to the atmosphere with live American and Latin jazz performances, which fill the restaurant with guitar licks and twinkling piano late into the night. Miami.com has praised the "great selection of rare wines." Likewise, the Miami New Times describes The Globe as "an ideal place to meet for happy hour."
