Lesser Known Restaurants to ConsiderMarch 1, 2016
Prime 112, Joe’s Stone Crab, Bongo’s Cuban Cafe, these are just a few of the most well-known restaurants in Miami and Miami Beach that continue to provide exceptional menus. However, there are many other lesser known places that have remained unintentional best-kept secrets of sorts and may be worth checking out the next time you’re looking for a new place to eat.
Moreno’s Cuba is located right here in Miami Beach just behind the Riviera Hotel within a beautiful courtyard. An escape from the noise of South Beach, guests at this speakeasy-inspired establishment by Grammy award-winning vocalist Jorge Moreno will find classic dishes like lechon asado and bistec palomilla plus some fantastic mosquito all complemented by live music performed nightly. Moreno’s Cuba is located at 318 20th Street.
If you’re looking for Italian cuisine, visit Villa Castelli in the town of Surfside which, coincidentally, earns its name from a town in Italy. Helmed by a Sicilian and Chilean chef, guests can dine on dishes like fresh prosciutto and house-made pasta. You’ll find the restaurant at 9472 Harding Avenue.
Those looking for a fresh dining experience in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth area may want to visit the recent French 27 restaurant featuring a huge menu with foods from all of France’s 27 regions. French 27’s address is 850 Commerce Street.
