Front of the House at the New Nikki Beach Restaurant, South Beach

Nikki Beach Miami (1 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach) is the flagship for a global enterprise that boasts outposts in exotic and far-flung locales such as Koh Samui, Qatar, Cannes, and Cyprus.

The South Beach branch started it all in 1998, and the father-and-son Penrod team has kept it alive and made it a force in world sexy-beach culture.

Recent renovations to Nikki Beach Miami include an updated interior, greater emphasis on dining, and a redone club.

Executive chef Gerry Gnassi has implemented a globally inspired menu that includes wood-oven pizza, sushi, and seafood such as the giant prawns pictured above as well as "local red snapper" -- which we don't know where they're getting because the U.S. government banned fishing for the species in federal waters in late 2009.

Take a look at Nikki Beach Miami.
