When we last wrote about Palme d’Or, we were lavishing its Miami Spice menu with praise. After all, $39 for a meal at this five-diamond restaurant is an absolute steal. You know what else is a steal? The restaurant’s other tasting menus, which start at $115 for six magnificent courses.
Earlier this year, we had one of our favorite meals ever at The Alley, a pizzeria and gelato concept from The Betsy Hotel. So when the invite came to check out The Betsy’s other restaurant — LT Steak & Seafood — we didn’t hesitate to RSVP. That swift response was warranted: The steak and seafood at LT is not to be missed.
It’s not often we make it out to Coconut Grove, but when we do, Ariete is always one of our first stops. Chef Michael Beltran (ex-Cypress Room) and his New American cuisine are crushing it in the neighborhood, and his lunch menu is quite possibly one of the best deals in town.
