Their pasta is amazing -- all of the noodles and raviolis are made in-house daily. They serve so many life changing pastas that we often change what we consider our favorite one. Not to be missed is their Thursday $10 pasta nights.

Basilic Vietnamese Grill
It's just a humble little hidden gem near our home in North Miami and they have amazing pho. No frills, no hype, just solid authentic Vietnamese food.

Sit at the chef's counter and order the tasting menu. The kitchen is a performance art show and the food is some of the best in the country. It is reasonably priced fine dining, but without pretentious service. It is consistently ranked best in town.
23 NW 23rd Street, Miami, FL 33127
This is a pizza speakeasy. It's hidden down a little alleyway and it's the best pizza in town. Get the Star Pizza; it's unbelievable. The crust of the outer pizza rim is stuffed with ricotta.

The Local Craft Food & Drink
As you can tell by the name, it's just a solid local spot. A super cool chef-driven concept. They have amazing Chicken & Dumplings, Beef Jerky, Fried Chicken and Biscuits. You really can't order anything wrong here. Grab some bourbon cocktails and local drafts.
