"After theatre it is hard to find a convenient place near the Arsht Center but City Hall always provides reliable food for either a light bite or a full meal."

Johnny V opened in December of 2003 and features the unique cuisine of Chef Johnny Vinczencz. The food is Regional American with Latin and Caribbean influences. Chef Vincencz combines the freshest ingredients of South Florida with a beautifully blended selection of spices from the Caribbean and South America. The result is a wide ranging menu of unique items, like blue corn crusted calamari and ancho cinnamon grilled pork tenderloin. Sporting bold compositions and beautiful presentations, the cuisine at Johnny V is like a trek through America's Heartland by way of the islands. The Chef and his staff have worked had to make dining in this restaurant an elegant adventure. <br /><br />The restaurant has received numerous accolades including 4 stars from the Miami Herald, 4 Stars from the Sun-Sentinel and Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. In 2005, it was voted #1 of the top 100 restaurants in the Sun-Sentinel as well as Best New Restaurant in Conde Nast Traveler.

"What appeals most is the fact that you can actually get quality food here at BLT on Ocean Drive as most restaurants along this famed road are just average."

"Met a group for late lunch and had fantastic service, food and were never rushed out. Glad we had a place to chat as it was so cold out to move to another place and the staff accommodated us. That's the way to win repeat customers."

With its sleek, gorgeous interior and sharp, friendly staff, Etcetera Etcetera has become a heavenly haven and shimmering neighborhood fixture for both discriminating New Yorkers and curious tourists. In addition to mouth-watering favorites such as Scialatielli, Grouper and Skirt Steak, there are always fresh and innovative options on the seasonal menus, and the outgoing staff is always good for a tasty recommendation. Whether you are looking for an intimate dinner, planning a large party or just want to grab fare, you can do it all in grand style at Etcetera Etcetera."

"Of course if you are staying at a nearby hotel on business and there is no limit to your expense account you can splurge at Lure. Portions are small, spicy and you leave feeling unsatisfied with a much lighter wallet. Locals can only go on special occasions as Lure does not have " neighbor friendly" prices."
