Miami's Ten Best Underrated Restaurants

Page 2 of 5

10. Frenchie's Diner

French food may bring to mind frilly, fussy, and fancy fare. However, Frenchie's is something very different. It has a distinctly American diner twist. It serves on-point French food in a fun and comfortable environment. The duck confit ($29) and the escargots ($10) rival those at any bistro, but without the snooty service.

9. Casablanca Seafood Bar & Grill

Along the Miami River, there's the never-ending freshly cracked drama of Seasalt & Pepper and the history of Garcia's, so Casablanca can easily be overlooked. It might not appear as lovely from the outside, but the seafood and the views should reel you in. This restaurant and fish market has a lot to offer. Try the paella Casablanca ($28). It comes loaded with shrimp, scallops, calamari, mussels, clams, chicken, and chorizo mixed with saffron rice.
