It's always a challenge to select only one winner when choosing the "Best of Miami." There are finely drawn lines between what we like, what we love, and what we scream from the rooftops.

The elegant dining room at hot spot Prime One Twelve stole our hearts in 2011 as winner of Best Décor, but there are others that we flirted with shamelessly. Here's a list of the ones that came close to taking the tiara.

5. Eos at the Viceroy (named Best Hotel Restaurant last year) might have lost celebrity chef Michael Psilakis, but it is a definite winner when is comes to décor. An upscale diner theme feels like a cross between midcentury modern and 1920s art deco. Brightly colored orange-and-yellow upholstered chairs provide a touch of whimsy, while customized black-and-white marble flooring dominates throughout. A highlight is the patio, with a very long table perfect for private dinners, and an unstoppable view of the bay and downtown landscape.

4. Chef Geoffrey Zakarian's newly opened Tudor House at the Dream Hotel refurbish the best of what was already in place (the terrazzo flooring, deco details) while updating the space to reflect the tasteful design of a "modern gastropub." Chairs and banquettes are made from a subtle stingray-textured leather, and carved wood partitions add dimension to the dining room with flair. The patio features curved teak furniture and smoky glass tabletops of the sort you expect to see at some exceedingly rich person's SoBe penthouse.
