Coconut Grove is one of Miami's most beautiful neighborhoods, but there's only one restaurant where you can truly appreciate its breathtaking seaside location. Tucked away on the eighth floor of the Sonesta hotel is Panorama, a hidden gem of a restaurant that holds many surprises. The first is the view. Get there before sunset, order a glass of wine, and you'll know without a doubt that this place could have no other name. After the sun sets, stay for the food, which features fantastic Peruvian dishes from executive chef Chris Cramer. There are fiery ceviches ($15 to $16) and patacones con pollo ($10) — fried plantains with chicken and cheese — for starters. Traditional soups like spicy chupe de camarones ($12) and pollo con fideos ($10) — chicken soup with hard-boiled eggs and cilantro — are soul-satisfying. Entrées include grilled churrasco ($19) and lomo saltado ($24). Throw in one of the best margaritas in town and you'll have everything you need to remind you that you live in the most gorgeous city on the globe.
