Mignonette Top 100

With its tan leather banquettes, marble raw bar, and hanging constellations fashioned from copper pipes, this seafood restaurant, located across NE Second Avenue from Miami’s oldest cemetery, is like Old Florida meets New Orleans. Start with a round of oysters (or Alaskan king crab legs, or shrimp cocktail). Move on to a crab cake. The “fancy” redfish comes seared, with a reduction of sautéed shallots, garlic, and piquillo peppers deglazed with brandy, stock, white wine, plus a touch of butter, and haricots verts on the side. The beer is ice-cold, the wine list is refreshingly oyster-friendly. New Normal: Mignonette has added outdoor seating (weather permitting).
