Miami's 14 Best New Eats and Drinks for Summer
Toro Toro's Heirloom Tomatoes
In an effort to always bring you The Best, we rounded up a few eats and drinks from around town that are mostly new for the season, starting with a summer classic: Ceviche. Its acidity energizes, its light, yet filling and when done right, it never sacrifices flavor. For a place that's got it down, head to SuViche. Their signature "Ceviche SuViche" ($7.00 sm or $11.95 lg) is made up of diced white fish marinated in lime juice, garnished with canchita, choclo and camote and their secret SuViche sauce that just screams summertime in Miami. Read on for more eats to beat Miami's endless summer heat and let us know if you spot any other new dishes around town in our comments section.
New Sandwich: Kippered (cured and hot smoked) Grouper Reuben
A Miami take on the dish, traditionally done with salmon. Josh's version is what he says Jews would eat if they had moved to Miami instead of New York at the turn of the 20th century. Josh places the grouper in a salt and sugar solution for 2 to 4 days, air dry for 24 hours and hot smoke the fish for another 2 to 4 hours. Once it's cooled the fish slices beautifully and is placed on toasted rye bread with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing for the ultimate fish sandwich this summer.
