Instagram, the wildly popular photo sharing social media application, has garnered over 100 million users since its founding in 2010. Today, smart phone users now share breakfast moments and coffee breaks with the press of two or three buttons.

But, for the most part, these quick snaps and shares have diminished the quality of food photography. Close-up shots of meatballs with bright, blinding flashes in a dimly-lit dining room dominate the social feeds. Blurry photos of 5 am half-eaten double cheeseburgers -- with an excess of ketchup -- likewise disenchant.

However, many Miami's restaurants, writers, bloggers and chefs utilize the popular application with much success. So, Instagram food aficionados, here's a list of the Magic City's top five Instagram accounts for great photos of good eats.

5. @runchickenrun - Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
Yardbird, South Beach's mecca for fried chicken and bourbon, knows exactly how to entice with good pictures of Southern fare and drinks. The restaurant's Instagram features daily lunch supper specials, behind the scenes looks into the kitchen and sneak peaks into events like Midnight Chef's Table. The restaurant's best shots are captured in daylight, just like the platter above.

Glad to learn about FGH. The ones from the restaurants don't count. That's like giving a Peabody to a press release.
