Icebox Cafe

Icebox is a bright, modern cake box of a space, the minimalist recipe of lofty white walls, industrial ceiling, and poured cement floor an attractive testament to less being more. It's a laid-back yet energized scene, with new-agey background music all but drowned out by the chitter-chatter of a lively crowd. But Icebox is more than just cool: It is one of the best neighborhood restaurants in South Beach. The New American cuisine — meaning dishes such as Greek salad, Argentine-style skirt steak, veal Milanese, and Thai-style ribs — is freshly prepared and fully flavored. The staff is cordial and competent. There are refreshing, innovative alcoholic beverages and refreshing, innovative nonalcoholic beverages and a bakery's worth of tantalizing desserts.
