A meal at Mariposa begins with classic touches of Fifties-era Neiman Marcus: iconic popovers and strawberry butter served alongside a complimentary demitasse of chicken broth. Although the modern menu has been customized for the Miami palate, the department store's old-fashioned good service and elegant presentation are intact. The popular sesame ahi tuna entree with ginger soy reduction is tasty, but if you are suffering from Merrick Park sticker shock, order a generously sized sandwich instead. Save room, and time, for the must-have chocolate lava cake, which requires a 15-minute wait. Located on the third floor of Neiman Marcus, Mariposa features a decor of calming earth tones that create an island in a sea of consumerism.
