Miami is a great city for beaches, clubbing, and a bit of debauchery. But when people think of fine-dining, thoughts usually turn to New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and New Orleans. However, the Bravo series Best New Restaurant may have forever secured the Magic City a place in the rankings of fine eats. The series' first season, which featured celebrity chef and James Beard Award winner Tom Colicchio as both host and executive producer, set out to find America's best new restaurant. Of the 16 restaurants featured, five (R House, the Federal Food Drink & Provisions, Buns & Buns, Tongue & Cheek, and Dolce Italian) were from the 305. The restaurants showed skill, talent, and determination, making Miami proud. In the end, South Beach's Dolce Italian beat the pants off Manhattan's L'Apicio to bring the title home. New York City may have the Empire State Building, but Miami has amazing food — and palm trees.
