These are seafood places, both places are on the Miami River, if you go early you can catch the fisherman unloading the days catch...it doesn't get fresher than that. Figure $15pp

Joe's Stone Crab (self explanatory)- why? Again, its in every travel guide. Again you can stone crab cheaper elsewhere (all stone crab are the same [PERIOD] but they get the nod for outstanding if not offstandish table service. Figure $30pp

Filling Station Garage Bar (burgers)- why? Its a pain to find, harder to park, and its ugly inside. BUT some of the tastiest burgers ever and tater tots to die for.

Casola's (pizza)- why? There is something gratifying about ordering a large pizza that is big enough to sleep under. Slices are enormous. In Miami you either think the best pizza is Frankie's or Casola's. Another ugly place, but hey when you need pizza at 4am, you don't care about decor.

El Palacio De Los Jugos (Cuban) - why? simply the best deal on Cuban food in town, make sure to bring your high school Spanish skills because nobody here speaks English except maybe a patron or two.

The Knife Steakhouse - why? Because the beef and salad is unlimited, and if I am going to die of a heart attack, I would like to be here, preferably on the balcony of the Coconut Grove location, I might get lucky and fall on a peacock.

Bond Street Sushi - why? There is just something cool about having sushi in the basement of a hotel with rocking trans music, and then going to the rooftop to keep partying.

Balans (continental) - Okay this isn't the best of the list, but the bathrooms still make me giggle

Big Pink (American) - why? Order the TV dinner and reminisce about watching Howdy Doody back when you actually had to get up and change the channel.

Micheal's Genuine Food and drink. why? just order up and thank me later.

River Oyster Bar - why? C'mon now, usually 12 different kind of oysters. If slimy snot things are your thing, this is the place to go.

You can't visit Miami and not try Cuban food! It is the heart and soul of Miami. I love Versailles but La Carreta is just as good. http://www.lacarreta.com/

Larios, Gloria Estefan's SOBE location and the original on Flagler is an institution. http://www.3guysfrommiami.com/larios.html

Joe's Stone Crab in Miami Beach is expensive but worth it -- another Miami "must" -- it is only open during stone crab season but now has a summer season until August 5th: http://www.joesstonecrab.com/

Great Miami dining synopsis -- captures overall flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments. This list is not the end all be all of lists. The OP was asking for kind of iconic places, so I tried to make it a bucket list of places *I* would go to if it were my last days in Miami. Looking back, I could have added a lot more to it. But then again, I'm not getting paid to write here

Use this list as a starting point to search for more great places to eat.

Miami Dining is awesome.

I really enjoyed the food at Pollo Inka, located on 36th Street near Doral. I had their ceviche dinner, which included ceviche, a garden salad, corn nuts, and baked sweet potato. The ceviche was tender and flavorful, and the sides complimented it nicely. Like the resaurant name suggests, their signature dish is probably chicken, but I haven't tried it.

Thank you for posting these! We're headed to both these restaurants when in South Beach in Sept. You confirmed that I'm on the right track

That description is making me so hungry. I can't wait for some authentic Cuban food.

I hate to pile on about Joes Stone Crab because I haven't eaten there in years, but my dad used to get so pissed off at that old matre'd. If you greased his palm you'd shoot to the front of the line.

Sooo, my family switched to Monteys years back.

Faith, glad to help you! Go early to Yardbird and at Puerto Suaga they'll speak Spanish to you. Both are fantastic!

Forgot to add that that is a fantastic list Angie!

There isn't a taste like it. Its usually milder than regular crab, and a lot sweeter. You usually have the option of having them hot or cold. I prefer cold.

The season runs from October 15 to May 15.

The are usually served alone with no seasoning and a side of mustard, horseradish, or drawn butter.

Miamiyogi, thanks again for the 3guys link! I'm making the churrasco and chimichurri tonight and it's been marinading since last night. My husband only eats kosher food and he has watched me eat churrasco so many times so I managed to get some kosher skirt steak.

Hi Royal! The chimichurri from the site is FANTASTIC! The key is the cilantro, most make it with parsley...My friends wont let me go to their BBQs unless I bring a bottle of my homemade chimichurri. The other key is marinating in mojo, which I guess you are doing. Taste the chimichurri with a piece of bread as you make it so you can season it the way you like.

THREE GUYS FROM MIAMI RULE!!!!!

I use chimichurri on chicken, fish, london broil, blablabla, LOL!!! I always make it with cilantro (LOVE cilantro) but the 3 Guys recipe also uses lime juice and onion, which are in addition to what I usually use. It was so good, the onion giving it much more texture. The marinade is sour orange juice, onion, olive oil, garlic, black peppercorns, etc. My kitchen was Casa Jew-ba tonight!

Casola's (pizza)- why? There is something gratifying about ordering a large pizza that is big enough to sleep under. Slices are enormous. In Miami you either think the best pizza is Frankie's or Casola's. Another ugly place, but hey when you need pizza at 4am, you don't care about decor.

El Palacio De Los Jugos (Cuban) - why? simply the best deal on Cuban food in town, make sure to bring your high school Spanish skills because nobody here speaks English except maybe a patron or two.

The Knife Steakhouse - why? Because the beef and salad is unlimited, and if I am going to die of a heart attack, I would like to be here, preferably on the balcony of the Coconut Grove location, I might get lucky and fall on a peacock.

Bond Street Sushi - why? There is just something cool about having sushi in the basement of a hotel with rocking trans music, and then going to the rooftop to keep partying.

Balans (continental) - Okay this isn't the best of the list, but the bathrooms still make me giggle

Big Pink (American) - why? Order the TV dinner and reminisce about watching Howdy Doody back when you actually had to get up and change the channel.

Micheal's Genuine Food and drink. why? just order up and thank me later.

River Oyster Bar - why? C'mon now, usually 12 different kind of oysters. If slimy snot things are your thing, this is the place to go.

Hint- they don't serve booze here (just beer and wine) but if you smile a lot and talk to the bartender and tip well he'll let you have some of the Gin he stashes for me.

Tobacco Road - Okay I hate this one. It is though the oldest bar in Miami (Fox's in South Miami makes the same claim). And I don't care what anyone says they don't have a license numbered 000, licenses weren't serialized back then. Then again, you probably would have been a railroad worker back then and not allowed to drink here anyway.
I love The River Oyster Bar! Great happy hour.

I don't mind Tobacco Road for drinks and live music. Just was The River, followed by Tobacco Road for a beer and the a Columbian hot dog at La Moon on Tiesday!
