New South Beach Restaurants

March 16, 2013

Here are a few of the many fine South Beach restaurants you may not be familiar with.

Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante at 1801 Purdy Avenue provides regional Italian fare in a lovely dining room frequented mostly by locals, Sardinia is a hidden treasure on the quiet west side of South Beach. Friendly servers are enthusiastic about the menu, the wine list is interesting and offers unique pours from small Italian vineyards. All in all a perfect spot for a savory Sunday night supper.

BLTSteak at 1440 Ocean Drive. Chef Laurent Tourondel's celebrated restaurant serves prime beef, sparkling tuna tartare, steamy popovers and classic cocktails to a preppy looking crowd who gather on the terrace to toast the sunset overlooking Ocean Drive. Miles away from the hype and spandex of Prime 112, this South Beach steakhouse offers a more relaxing vibe and better food than most of the Kobe heavy competition.

Charlotte Bakery at 1499 Washington Avenue. Blink and you will miss this cozy Latin cafe where the empanadas, arepas and cheesy Colombian "pan de bono" breads make mornings so much sweeter. Stop in for a coffee, a pastry and a friendly smile from the mom & pop proprietors.

Burger & Beer Joint at 1766 Bay Road. Chances are you're not hungry enough to order the 10 pound burger served up by a parade of hacksaw wielding waiters who heft the large platter all through the restaurant, but the hope that SOMEONE might order one brings us back to South Beach's gourmet beef spot hoping to catch the ruckus one more time. Enjoy juicy beef, fish or veggie burgers, thick onion rings and a lively crowd.
