Miami, FL, USA
I'm in Miami bitch! Check out the best eats & drinks in this sexy Florida destination.
This "globally-inspired" restaurant is known for it's creativity and amazing small plates. It's not only the phenomenal food that Executive Chef Timon Balloo puts out, but the space is stunning (especially the wrap around indoor-outdoor bar) and their innovative cocktails. It has won recognition from Eater and Johnson & Wales, and was even a semi-finalist for "Best New Restaurant" by the James Beard Foundation. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Miami and you can locate it in the hip Design District.
Byblos is doing Eastern Mediterranean cuisine beautifully along Miami Beach. Don't get confused with your typical "Mediterranean" restaurant as the focus here is using influences from countries like Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Greece, to name a few. Byblos uses traditional cooking methods from the region, but they make sure to utilise local and traditional ingredients in each dish. Make sure to try the signature cocktails and some Israeli wine for a complete experience. If you aren't ready to go home after dinner check out their lounge on the ground floor to keep the night going.
