Big Pink Restaurant South Beach

157 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-532-4700

Location Description:

Only its atypical look - self-consciously (and, at this point, rather dated) industrial-chic, instead of classic prefab container - would keep this kid-friendly eatery off a list of ultimate American diners. Otherwise, everything is as a true diner oughta be: belly-busting portions, with single items typically serving two to four people; proletarian prices (most dishes are less than ten bucks; only a few are more than $15); late hours; and breakfast anytime. The timeless comfort food is all house-made from scratch -- even the thick potato chips and spicy ketchup -- and features with some sexy upgrades: for instance, a "Pink Daddy Mack" burger with better beef and a brioche bun; imaginative multicultural salads; elegant crunchy/creamy polenta fries, as well as the normal sort; witty daily-changing TV dinners, served in six-compartment stainless-steel trays. Big Pink is a diner with benefits.
