Top Ten Places to Take Out-Of-Towners

Hey there, tour guide. Looking to show your out-of-towners a good time? Frozen drinks at Wet Willie's sure sound like fun. How about Cuban sandwiches at Versailles and Sunday brunch on Lincoln Road? Or, perhaps, a drive to the Everglades for fried alligator. Yes, it's gamey. Yes, it tastes like chicken. But no. Please, no!

With tourists in tow, stop by La Camaronera. Venture to Homestead. Sip on a milk shake while sitting by the petting zoo at Robert Is Here. A scoop (or two) of Azucar Ice Cream's Abuelita Maria flavor -- with cream cheese, Maria cookies, and guava -- is also in order. Cocktails at Broken Shaker, beers at Wood Tavern, late-night sandwiches at La Sandwicherie, and chicharrones at El Palacio de los Jugos: all part of the good host's to-do list.

If these places sound unfamiliar, fret no longer! We've compiled a foolproof list of the top ten places to take out-of-towners. Here's where to go for all unique things food and drink.
