Como Como915 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
This new seafood restaurant and raw bar from the owners of Coyo Taco has opened inside the Moxy Miami South Beach hotel. The eatery touts its open kitchen, where guests can watch as whole fish are cooked over an open flame. Como Como — a play on the Spanish words for "how I eat" — is a nod to dining as entertainment; how your food is created becomes part of the show. Coyo Taco Group executive chef Scott Linquist says the Como Como menu is designed to channel the flavors of Mexico's most lauded seaside destinations, from Puerto Escondido and Los Cabos to Acapulco. Try dishes like pescado a la talla, a whole butterflied snapper served open-face with a jalapeño cilantro garlic butter and ancho chile garlic butter ($58). Open Wednesday to Sunday from 6 to 11 p.m.
The Grilled Cheese Gallery1250 S Miami Ave., Miami

The menu offers a number of specialty sandwiches, along with a daily special or two, all grilled up into toasty, cheesy perfection between two slices of your choice of thick-cut bread varieties. There's even a cheesier version of the cheesesteak — dubbed the Gallery steak melt — that combines grilled hanger steak with a cheddar-Gruyère blend, caramelized onions, and kimchi. The restaurant also offers a choice of gluten-free bread, meat-free add-ons like tofu, and vegan cheese for customizable vegan versions.
