Top Ten Lunch Spots in Miami
6. Buena Vista Deli
Buena Vista Deli via Facebook Buena Vista Deli, for pastries and French things.
You know what's good at Buena Vista Deli? Croissants. And you know what makes croissants even better? When you order them stuffed with bacon and swiss ($6) and add extra mozzarella and goat cheese because you can. But maybe you hate butter. (Weirdo.) Then order homemade pate or rillettes. Don't know what that is? Don't worry too much. Get 'em anyway. You want rillettes. You just don't know it yet.
5. Khong River House
billwisserphoto.com Rough morning? Have a Thai donut.
This is Miami. It's hot. But sometimes stubborn coworkers want old-school Thai curries, the kind that make you feel all sorts of wacky and blotchy and bloated. Not good. But fear curry no longer! Steer friends in the direction of Khong River House, a South Beach restaurant where curries are fiery but light. Get Burmese noodles ($12). Try that stuff called tofu in their Thai tofu salad ($11). Enjoy Thai done right. Oh, oh, oh! One more thing. They've got cocktails.
