Tony Also Recommends: The Room

"A civilized alternative to Mac's Club Deuce, The Room offers hand-crafted beers and a great selection of wines. Their crowd’s generally laid-back and pretty mellow. It feels far away from the madness on a back street."

100 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

See & Do
Miami Jai-Alai

Tony and Chris Garver go to see a game. Tony humorously describes Jai-alai as "guys with wicker scoops attached to their arms throwing balls around."

3500 NW 37th Ave, Miami, FL 33142-4997

See & Do
Miguel Paredes Art Gallery

Miami's art scene is thriving and Tony spent a lot of time in the new Design District. Chris Garver is friends with Miguel Paredes and the 2 stop by his art gallery to see the latest exhibit.

173 NW 23rd St, Miami, FL 33127

Garcia's Seafood

"Garcia’s is no flash, no pretense -- just simple wooden tables by the Miami River. There’s good fresh local fish, due to the fact that fishing boats dock right up to the restaurant to drop of their catch."

398 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128-1626

Tony Also Recommends: River Oyster Bar

"For slightly more tricked-out ambiance, this restaurant offers largely local and organic cuisine. Inside is a horshoe-shaped bar serving seafood stew and roasted lobster."

650 South Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33131

Tony Also Recommends

Try "a cortadito or café con leche or cafecito (one-shot version) in Little Havana."

Little Havana, FL 33130

See & Do
Stiltsville Boat Tour (Ace Sailing Charters)

Fellow chef Michael Schwartz (chef of Michael’s Genuine) invites Tony on a boat tour (see company's address below) of Stiltsville; a series of abandoned buildings in the ocean once used as casinos and underground rum-running safe houses.

5th Street Marina, 341 NW South River Dr, Miami, FL 33128

S&S Diner

Tony goes here for lunch. He describes it as a gloriously unchanged-by-time greasy spoon. Dating back to the 1930s, S&S features old-school communal seating around a horseshoe bar with stools. Tony orders meatloaf, grits, gravy, peas and an iced tea.

1757 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33132
