Miami is a city that never fails to keep us excited. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up the city’s Top 5 American dishes served up with a twist. These classic dishes have gotten an upgrade from some of the hottest restaurants in town. Here’s a look at our haute picks:
1 American Social Brickell: Black Truffle Short Rib Melt
Your average BBQ shortrib sandwich just got even better. Oozing with savory black truffle aioli and gruyere cheese, the impeccably prepared short rib sandwich is sure to be a crowd favorite, seasoned with black pepper pecorino and paired with delicious potato sticks on the side. We recommend ordering this beauty with the Blood Orange Pale Ale on tap to complete the experience.
2 Sarsaparilla Club: Sarsaparilla's Fried Chicken
Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth have won Miami over with their new restaurant, Sarsaparilla Club, creating a unique “American Dim Sum” menu that offers dishes like we’ve never seen before. This hot spot is changing the game of fried chicken with their special green curry fried chicken dish. This menu favorite bursts with flavor from kaffir lime powder, coriander, and toasted coconut seasonings bringing forth an Indian-infused American dish.
3 Beaker & Gray: Cheeseburger Croquette
Beaker & Gray combines a Miami signature dish and an American classic with their Cheeseburger Croquettes. Yes, a combo this amazing does exist and it’s even better than you can imagine. This gem can be found on the bites section of the menu and it is a must try, deliciously made with wagyu beef, aji Amarillo and Yukon gold. We promise you won’t regret this.
4 The Continental: Cheesesteak Egg Roll
Philly meets Asian cuisine with this menu favorite at Steven Starr’s new Continental Restaurant located in Miami Beach. Enjoy crispy egg roll on the outside and the classic American Philly cheesesteak on the inside, with thinly sliced meat and a special seasoning that gives it a delicious kick, complimented by the warm American cheese. These small bites allow you to indulge in this guilty pleasure without feeling all the guilt--after all, they're mini, right?
5 dB Bistro Moderne: dB Burger
If you're ordering this signature dish, you'd better be coming hungry. This is not your average burger--the dB Burger expertly puts a French-infused spin on your traditional American bbq burger. But if you can handle it, it is well worth the $34 that it costs. Take a bite into the savory parmesan bun and sink your teeth into the sirloin patty with braised short rib and truffles. We guarantee you won't find anything better.
