Good Restaurants on Eight Street between Gables and Downtown Miami

What are your favorite Calle Ocho/Eight Street Restaurants in the Gables to Downtown Miami stretch of 8th St?

Anyone been to The Grill Club in Coral Gables?

How does it compare to Texas de Brazil (SOBE) Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Best place for Brunch in Midtown?

Thanks for your critique. However, I was asking for the BEST place for brunch in Midtown. Generally, a request for the best would invite responses for one's opinion of the Best place irrespective of price, cuisine type, etc. Further, Webster's defines brunch as " a meal usually taken late in the morning that combines a late breakfast and an early lunch." Therefore, any suggestions you have on the Best Brunch (breakfast and lunch per Webster's definition) place in Midtown would be greatly appreciated.

Dinner recs b/t Morningside Heights and Midtown

I will visiting NYC in March and attending a performance at St. John the Divine Cathedral in Morningside Heights. I am seeking dinner recommendations either in this area or anywhere along the way back to my hotel in Midtown. Something under $150 for two people would be great, any style of cusine except Sushi is great. I f you know of a great dive or whole in the wall, we are up for that too. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Passed by it today on my way to court and was wondering if it was any good? What about all of those Chinese restaurants on 167th?

Talula Spice experience - Do restaurants shoot themselves in the foot?

I too went to Talula on Spice with high hopes, only to be disappointed and realize along with my friends that we would not be back. It was a shame because I really wanted to like it. I went on a week night and it was not busy at all....service was horrible and took way too long and food was so disappointing. For me I use Spice as an opportunity to try and new restaurant and see if I should add it to my list. Why participate if it only serves to discourage future patronage?

Shot glass desserts

I love them and get them at PF Changs. I love them both becasue they are cheaper than a full dessert and have fewer calories. It is kind of like a 100 calorie pack (obviously I know they are more than one hundred calories) at a restaurant. It is perfect to end a meal. I am a BIG fan!!!! I can eat dessert without guilt. I often wont order a full dessert b/c I know I wont have the will power to only eat one or two bites.

MIAMI area

Security on Calle Ocho is fine, so keep Versailles on the list. I would go to either Michy's or Michaels in the Design District (Michy's is more funky). You could go to Garcia's Fish Market in the Miami River for some good seafood. There is a great Colombian Restaurant on Washington Avenue in SOBE called Las Tablas.

Miami- Wheres the best Indian?!?!

Where and when are they going to open a new Gables Indian restaurant? I had a really awful takeout meal from House of India the other night and would love something palatable close.

Best sub shop in Miami?

If you haven't been to Hungry Bear Sub Shop you are missing out. There are multiple locations, but I have only been to the one in Kendall. This is one of the best sub shops I have EVER been too. It even beat Carl's in NYC!!!! When you go you will see how popular it is...it is always busy!

Help- need restaurants for business lunches w/private room

In Miami you have a lot of options. Where in Miami would you want these meetings... Downtown/Brickell, Coral Gables, The Beach, etc. If you are meeting downtown, The Capital Grill has a private room. Gordon Biersch also has a private room but this room is a "fishbowl" room. Porcao may have a private room but you would have to call them and check. http://www.porcaous.com/. These are all on Brickell.

New to Miami, need help finding a few things...

I think someone mentioned it already but Wolfe's Wines in the Gables is great and the owners are really incredibly nice and helpful.

For fish you could try Garcia's fish market on the Miami River.
