Kris Wessel's famous barbecued shrimp are back, this time in South Beach and alongside a cornucopia of dishes drawing from old Florida cuisine, as well as the Caribbean and Latin American influences that color the world of South Florida dining. The whole menu, however, is gluten-free, which means no traditional flour. But that doesn't mean no fun. There's chickpea-flour roti with those sweet, smoky shrimp. The penne in the mac 'n' cheese is made of cornflour, and not even the most refined palate would be able to tell. Wessel is offering boldly flavored ropa vieja, rotisserie duck, oxtail, and slow-roasted pork in a smooth setting with topnotch service, proving that healthful doesn't have to be bland.
