Located in downtown Coral Gables, Bread + Butter serves modern Cuban cuisine. The self-proclaimed gastrocounter -- a fusion between a Cuban cafeteria and American gastropub -- is helmed by chef Alberto Cabrera. The cooking here is playful. Try Cabrera's pan con lechón, a fluffy Chinese bao bun crammed with roast pork shoulder, sourced from Florida’s Palmetto Creek Farms. Also sample his plátano en tentación -- fried sweet plantains wrapped in house-cured bacon. The teeny bits are smothered in five-spice syrup crowned by a dollop of sour cream and chives. Sure, the syrup is overwhelming, and each bite borders on excess. But that's why Cabrera calls it a "temptation." There are also times when the chef's experiments go awry: Goat cheese flan arrives in a nettlesome tin can; shell-on shrimp are served in a tight mason jar. Still, Bread + Butter is a fun spot to try new takes on classic Cuban cooking. — Emily Codik
