When we do Miami Spice, we do our research and scour menus for the best values. But if Lure Fishbar has taught us anything, it’s not to judge a book by its cover. On paper, the Miami Spice offerings at Lure seemed like your standard fare. We were so wrong.

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.

Miami Beach’s South of Fifth neighborhood is home to some of our favorite restaurants, and now we can add another one to the list: Azabu Miami Beach. The New York-based Michelin-starred sushi restaurant has opened a new outpost inside Stanton South Beach, joining Lolo’s Surf Cantina in providing locals and visitors an assortment of delectable fare.
