When we last wrote about Cleo, we were blown away by the quality of the food — we couldn’t scarf down the dips, shawarma and other Mediterranean fare fast enough. The restaurant has since gone through a revamp, and it’s back and better than ever. We went in with big expectations, and the Redbury establishment did not disappoint. Days later, we were still enjoying our leftovers.
Dining out is an experience … or at least it should be. A restaurant can have great food, but a boring vibe or atmosphere can keep it from reaching its full potential. Eateries that are able to do both — cook up delicious fare and provide a memorable experience — are the ones that stick out in Miami’s ever-growing food scene. LaMuse Cafe is no exception.
“You need to go to Andiamo.”
“How have you not been to Andiamo?”
“We love Andiamo. Definitely check it out.”
Whenever we talk to our friends about good pizza in Miami, Andiamo always pops up in the conversation … and at least one of the above statements makes an appearance, too. For about two years, we’ve been told we need to visit, and we finally did — just in time for their 16th anniversary (a huge milestone in Miami). By waiting so long, we’ve been missing out on some amazing pizza.
When we talk to people about restaurants on Miami Beach, The Restaurant at The Raleigh has never really come up in conversation. But that all changed last month when we finally stopped in to try the refreshed menu from Executive Chef Josh Elliott.
Now, we can’t praise the restaurant enough. Few places make you feel this good while you eat; instead of hating ourselves after gorging on a meal, we left the restaurant feeling refreshed and satisfied. It’s great, clean food served with a view.
