I’m taking out of town friends to dinner in the Bal Harbour area. What places would you recommend for very good food and nice ambiance?
Best bet for fine dining is Le Sireneuse in the Four Seasons Surfside. It’s the US outpost of the restaurant of the same name in Positano. Very glam though be prepared for a stiff bill. If you want to have good food and a very Miami ambiance (outdoor dining, casual, people watching), try the restaurants in Bal Harbour Shops — Le Zoo (French), Makoto (Asian), Carpaccio (Italian). Prices at these spots are accessible.
