Port St Lucie Day Trip to South Beach
As the melting pot of many cultures that have called Florida home, the immigrants from Cuba and Caribbean have created what is known as the Florida cuisine over the years. From this group, the Cuban community has had the most influence in Florida cuisine, followed by other Caribbean’s immigrants from Nassau and Jamaica. Dining in one of these ethnic restaurants is a must when you visit our bountiful state.
From the climate to local fruits and vegetables, stone crabs and lobsters in Florida and specifically South Florida offer all ingredients necessary to create mouthwatering dishes that set them apart from other tourist destinations. Small mom and pop and landmark Cuban restaurants in Calle Ocho (Eight Street) in Miami or the one and only Joe’s Stone Crab offer gastronomical experiences that could not be matched anywhere in the world. Joe’s Stone Crab was established over eighty years ago in Miami Beach and today by far is the most landmark restaurant in Florida if not the nation.
For Cuban food, you can find a restaurant in almost any neighborhood but while in South Beach, the Puerto Sagua is perhaps the best choice but if you are trying to impress someone or love busy places then Lario’s on the Beach is a place for you. Latin Superstar Gloria Stephan and her Emmy Award winner husband Emilio own the Cardozo Hotel that houses the restaurant.
For casual dining and especially breakfast do not miss News Cafe South Beach, the home of beautiful people. News Cafe was established in the late 80’s primarily to serve the models, their admirers, and the camera crew, which eventually became a great place to relax and watch people from your sidewalk table for locals and visitors alike.
