The cocktail bar, located in the X Miami building, is known for drinks by bartender Will Thompson, but chef/owner Carey Hynes is the one upping the bar-chow game. Instead of gorging yourself on high-fat fried foods, why not dip some fresh Parker House rolls into a ramekin of duck jus? You won't miss chicken wings when you have aged country ham to pair with your drink. But the most genius part of the menu at Jaguar Sun are the four pasta dishes, each satisfying and soulful. The campanelle with mussels and saffron works best with rum cocktails. And everything goes with the bucatini, tossed with Parmesan, Pecorino-Romano, and black pepper. Pasta as bar food? It's so obvious yet such a revelation you'll kick yourself for stuffing your face with onion rings and pub burgers all these years. Insider tip: Start your evening at Jaguar Sun's weekday happy hour. From 5 to 7 p.m., forget your work troubles with the $8 Perfect Manhattan or other select drinks while you scarf down $3 Jonah crab claws with Thai dipping sauce.
