About the restaurant
CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?

📍 FAENA MIAMI BEACH
James Beard Award-winning chef, Paul Qui, unfolds an ultra-exclusive speakeasy style Omakase experience-- El Secreto. Blending Tokyo-style sushi and Kyoto-style kaiseki into an unparalleled tasting menu that’s prepared and served for a mouthwatering culinary journey.

Tucked behind FAENA's candlelit cava and the red velvet folds of Faena Theater, there is beauty hidden in the shadows. EL SECRETO, Miami's best-kept secret for those in the know.

In Japan, the term ‘omakase’ refers to respectfully leaving another to decide what is best, or in gastronomic speak: the chef’s selection.

Indulge in the highest-quality seafood from around the world and relish in ever-evolving dishes and ingredients such as line-caught fish flown in daily, innovative vegetable dishes, sea urchin from Hokkaido, sustainable bluefin tuna from Baja and Sanuki Olive Wagyu from Kagawa Prefecture in Japan.

What you’ll find? We’ll never tell.

Perhaps the most original cocktail bar around, El Salón is not just a beautifully designed lounge with speakeasy vibes, but its exclusive selection of house-made spirit blends takes mixology to new heights. Martinis, Mojitos and Mai Tais are just some of the classics offered.

About the restaurant
One of the few remaining Miami locales offering traditional afternoon tea, the Biltmore is arguably the most elegant venue, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, magnificent lobby and majestically mantled fireplace. The refreshing repast is served daily and is complemented with and elegant harpist. Reservations are recommended.

Brickell
About the restaurant
Delilah Miami is a modern-day supper club that brings a vibrant flair to the heart of Brickell. Elegantly situated with two yacht slips on the waterfront, allure and timeless charm become one at Delilah. This vintage-inspired sanctuary immerses guests in Miami’s sultry spirit set aglow by lavish chandeliers that cast a warm glow upon its plush interior. Within this haven, guests are enveloped in nostalgia by the gentle crackling of the fireplace and the embrace of overstuffed armchairs, elevating comfort while indulging on exquisite American fare.

Dining elevates to dancing as a troupe of female entertainers move to the sounds of a live jazz band. Eating, drinking, and dancing blur while guests relish in lounge-style bottle service deep into the rhythm of the night…oh yeah.

Ambience and decor are world class. Our server was genuinely focused on ensuring a wonderful experience.. that aside, the food and drink prices are a premium. And the bar liquor selection is limited to celebrity endorsed bands, most of which are average at best. And the pricing for the food was excessive, considering the taste and preparation was not premium quality. Great place for a drink, or to socialize. Food did not blow me away, unfortunately.

Over the past several months I have taken different sets of friends to Flora Plant Kitchen. We have always had a wonderful and delicious experience. It starts out with friendly greetings from the staff and owners (Maria, Kikki, David, Sebas) followed by a healthy smoothie or a cup of the best Colombian coffee in Miami. Usually we sit outside in their covered tropical garden, but this time we opted for the brightly-lit interior with great views of the bakery, the kitchen, and the other patrons. Depending on when you go, you will be offered a delicious and healthy menu for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. I understand that they will start offering dinner in September. My favorites? huevos divorciado, breakfast sandwich, hamgurguesa, and shakshouka, but you really can't go wrong with anything that you choose.

Went there to celebrate my girlfriends birthday, had a good time. Lighting and noise level was great for the occasion. We had Gamberoni Alla Griglia for an appetizer which was decent but Tagliolini Ai Gamberetti E Calamari was delightful. Will be going again the next time I visit Miami.
