3. Josh’s Deli. This Miami staple offers modernized slants on traditional Jewish deli items. Try a sandwich made with house-cured pastrami or corned beef ($16) or roast turkey, avocado, and bacon ($17). Bacon in a deli? That's why Josh's motto is "A Jewish deli done wrong." Never has being wrong felt so right. 9517 Harding Ave, Surfside; 305-397-8494;
