It's that time of year when we count down to New Times' Best of Miami 2012 issue in June. Until then, Short Order will serve up 100 of our favorite dishes in the 305. If you have any nominations of your own, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
22. Pulpo a Feira at Barceloneta
It is one of 14 "plats" at Barceloneta Spanish Bistro & Mercat, the Pubbelly team's tapas-inspired bistro in South Beach. The menu description tells you what's in the pulpo a Feira -- "octopus, fingerling potato foam, piquillo, chorizo, tomato confit and pinemtón de la Vera" ($16), but words can't convey the tantalizing contrasts: Tender tentacles, spicy chorizo, sweet peppers, slightly salty tomato confit, and an ethereal potato foam smoky with pimentón and chorizo oil.
Order a small loaf of warm, crusty baguette ($2) to sop up the sauce, and a glass of Spanish wine to put your day behind you. It'll be like being in Europe, but with better weather.
