Barton G. Weiss, the founder of this charming eatery off the beaten path in Miami Beach, is a perfectionist whose obsession with detail has paid off. Eight years after opening, it’s still impossible to get a table without a reservation almost any night of the week. Loyal diners swarm in to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and promotions with smoking cocktails from the Nitro Bar, lobster pop tarts, voodoo shrimp, and creatively presented entrées, such as Good Ol’ Southern Fried Chicken and Cheeky Monkey Mahi, rubbed with aji pancha pepper paste and served with boniato cilantro purée. The desserts alone are worth the trip—and worth every calorie—with inventive offerings, including the box of South Beach beignets with Chantilly cream fudge and house-made raspberry jam, the big top cotton candy and popcorn surprise, which arrives with a lit sparkler on top.
