14. Fried Green Tomatoes at Whisk
Although Florida can technically be considered a Southern state, anyone living in Miami knows we're far removed from anything resembling the American South. Thankfully, we have Whisk to keep us in check.
The gourmet restaurant serves home-style meals using local and organic products to give us the classiest comfort food in South Miami.
Take, for example, the fried green tomatoes ($5.95). Served with herb buttermilk dressing, this lightly fried appetizer beats your average mozz sticks. The tart, unripe tomatoes bite back at you in the best way, while you find yourself scooping every last drop of the smooth buttermilk sauce.
The plate comes with only five tomato slices, so you might not want to share.
