Here are some you must definitely visit if a classy dinner is what you want:
Pasta Brava: Fresh, hand-made pasta, Pasta Brava is an amazing Italian restaurant. Very classic Italian interiors. They also provide you crayons to doodle on the white tablemat while waiting for your food! More fun for your dinner date; you can play Pictionary if you run out of things to say.
Definitely try the pastas here. The Linguine Regina Del Mare ($23) is recommended if you like tomato-based seafood pasta.
Club Street Social: Any place that serves all-day breakfast items is fine with me. Scrambled Eggs, Fontina, Chives and Toast ($12) is an excellent choice to savour their runny and creamy eggs. Club Street Social is quite intimately small, and transforms into a more bustling drinking hole at night. Food is quite good. However, if you are looking for a large quantity you might be disappointed. Servings are quite small. If you go during the weekend, the place might be crowded. Overall experience was good.
Les Amis: It’s French. And it has the most drool-worthy collection of wine and cheese. Need we say anything further? The place is done up keeping modern design trends in mind that compliments the fusion menu of the place perfectly. The Europe-meets-Asia concept has made this one of the more popular restaurants of the region. This place is made up beautifully and serves traditional French cuisine. If that’s what you like then this place is certainly for you. You will find mini croissant being served as petite-fours. The service that this restaurant offers is quite good. Its just that it is a little costly. But then all good things come at a price!!
Akashi: If you like casual Japanese food and want to avoid the mass-market Sushi Tei, Akashi is the indie version to go to. A more bustling restaurant, choose Akashi if you don’t want to have awkward silences during your date. The Coconut Groove location is slightly larger in comparison to the South Miami location. One of the reasons could be because it slightly extents to the outdoor courtyard. The food is quite good and the service is also appreciable. I would definitely visit this place one more time if I happen to visit this city again.
Bistro à Table: Another fusion cuisine place heavily influenced by the French. Its architecture draws a lot of inspiration from Australian and French décor styles and trends and Parisian art will greet you from every corner as you sit to dine.
