Dim Sum Dining: The Haute 5 Chinese Restaurants in Miami

This award-winning restaurant has made its U.S. debut at Fontainebleau Miami Beach and offers diners authentic Cantonese fare complemented by a diverse menu of New World wines and sake. Among the many standouts on its extensive menu are roast duck breast with mango — the meat bursting with five-spice flavor, the fruit perfectly ripe, a light lemon sauce adeptly cutting the sweet richness; jasmine tea-smoked pork ribs, whose soft, aromatic meat slips off the row of bones like silk kimonos from a chorus line of concubines; and a juicy wedge of silver cod with a seductive champagne and honey sauce. For a light dessert, try ripe berries semi-draped in gelatinous Prosecco, with a melon-drenched quenelle of cantaloupe sorbet on top. A petite pandan leaf soufflé with coconut sorbet is a knockout as well. The restaurant, located on the fourth floor rooftop, is a seductive enclave of rich textures and hues.
