Miami Trip Itineraries

Top 10 Restaurants in Florida

Destination(s): Miami

Put down the mojito and forget about Phase 1 of the South Beach diet; let’s talk about real food and all those restaurants in Florida. Lucky for us, they’re a delicious mosaic of the state’s historical and culinary influences: Southern US, European, Cuban, Latin American and local seafood. In their honor we’ve compiled a list of our top 10 foods and places in Florida we’d like to salute with a fork. Fresh oysters and seafood among palm trees at Oystercatchers in Tampa Bay. Gourmet Mexican-style grilled meats and seafood at Eduardo de San Angel. Barbeque and other classic Southern diner fare at The Floridian Restaurant. Hip Louisiana Creole cuisine at Emeril’s Miami Beach. Pasta, barbeque and upscale American cuisine at Nonna Trattoria. As fresh as you can get stone crab, fish and seafood at Joe’s Stone Crab. Italian pasta, meats and fish at Café Trastevere. And seafood at contemporary Florida-style restaurant Bagatelle. read more about Top 10 Restaurants in Florida

So committed to their mission of serving the some of the best and freshest stone crab anywhere, this restaurant doesn't even bother to open its doors until fishing season for its namesake crustacean (from October through May). But when it is open to the public, this establishment swarms with crowds lining up for seats and a chance to indulge what many feel are some of the finest crab anywhere. Dining here requires more than a little patience and a few dollars, but there are few who complain about the crab, or any of the other seafood offerings, for that matter. It's not hard to understand why this place has been around since 1913.

Oystercatchers is a secluded restaurant on the grounds of the Grand Hyattt Tampa Bay.  Surrounded with tropical foliage and swaying palm trees, you feel as if you've left the city behind.  Once you step into the restaurant, you will be mesmerized with the view of Tampa Bay.  There is a lower bay-level deck where you can sip on a cocktail, wine, or beer, and view amazing sunsets.  An outside patio allows you to feel the warm tropical breezes that flow in from the bay, while searching for a family of dolphins swimming nearby.  Oystercatchers delivers only the finest menu items with freshly caught fish and organic produce.  Choose from several seafood specialty dishes and settle in for a relaxing and elegant dining experience.
