Don’t be fooled by its location in a run-down strip mall in South Beach: Drunken Dragon’s (1424 Alton Rd.; 305-397-8556) do-it-yourself take on Korean barbecue elevates the experience to a memorable night out. Also in South Beach: Chef Fabio Viviani’s Siena Tavern Miami (404 Washington Ave.) is creating a sensation with its coccoli, crispy dough puffs stuffed with cheese and prosciutto and topped with truffle honey, while an Il Mulino (840 First St.; 305-372-1221) outpost serves signature dishes like stuffed veal chops. And the gluten-averse are raving about chef Kris Wessel’s Oolite Restaurant & Bar (1661 Pennsylvania Ave.; 305-907-5535), where his menu boasts almost no processed ingredients, gluten or saturated fats (try the turkey burger, pictured above).

Housed in a refurbished gas station from the 1930s, Mignonette (210 NE 18th St.; 305-374-4635) is a New Orleans–meets–Old Florida–style oyster and caviar bar in Edgewater. A warehouse in Wynwood is home to the haute cuisine at Shikany (251 NW 25th St.; 305-573-0690); think maple-syrup-braised boar cheeks.

Two years after chef Giorgio Rapicavoli won over locals with his Coral Gables restaurant Eating House 804 Ponce de Leon Blvd.; 305-448-6524), his new Upper East Side Spanish tapas spot, Taperia Raca 7010 Biscayne Blvd.; 305-751-8756), is receiving applause. And chef Tim Andriola’s Basil Park (17608 Collins Ave.; 305-705-0004)—mere steps from his first place, Timo (17624 Collins Ave.; 305-936-1008)—has health-nut staples like kale chips and quinoa.
