Spaghetti at Scarpetta

Chef Scott Conant's deceptively simple rendition bursts with a surprisingly light and luscious flavor. The firmly cooked, homemade noodles come coated in a buttery marinara sauce of plum tomatoes, crushed red pepper, butter, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and fresh basil. Order your own bowl because you won't want to share. — Jacquelynn Powers

Strawberry Shake and Cinnamon Bun at Knaus Berry Farm

The strawberries that go into the shakes at South Dade's legendary Knaus Berry Farm are grown on-site, the cinnamon buns are hand-baked with love (no really, you can actually taste it), and the German Dunker who takes your cash-only payment will make you feel as though you're in some kind of Dade County time warp. You are. Enjoy it. — Jacob Katel

Vegan Ding Dong at Lido at the Standard

Pastry chef Vanessa Lane's version of the Ding Dong tastes almost exactly like that beloved snack of your childhood. The qualification gets added because this treat is quite a bit fresher and, truth be told, a whole lot better. This Ding Dong ($8) derives from a higher-quality chocolate, doesn't contain baking powder (thus no sulfates), and, well, we'll refrain from going into the whole health shebang. Just be prepared to dig how darn delicious it is. — Lee Klein

Lido at the Standard, 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-1717
