Helado de mamey? Yes, please.
Hey there, tour guide. Looking to show your out-of-towners a good time? Frozen drinks at Wet Willie's sure sound like fun. How about Cuban sandwiches at Versailles and Sunday brunch on Lincoln Road? Or, perhaps, a drive to the Everglades for fried alligator. Yes, it's gamey. Yes, it tastes like chicken. But no. Please, no!

With tourists in tow, stop by La Camaronera. Venture to Homestead. Sip on a milk shake while sitting by the petting zoo at Robert Is Here. A scoop (or two) of Azucar Ice Cream's Abuelita Maria flavor -- with cream cheese, Maria cookies, and guava -- is also in order. Cocktails at Broken Shaker, beers at Wood Tavern, late-night sandwiches at La Sandwicherie, and chicharrones at El Palacio de los Jugos: all part of the good host's to-do list.

If these places sound unfamiliar, fret no longer! We've compiled a foolproof list of the top ten places to take out-of-towners. Here's where to go for all unique things food and drink.

Get borracho at Mac's Club Deuce.
10. Mac's Club Deuce + La Sandwicherie
Two places? Two places! Repeat after us. Bo-rra-cho: an inebriated state spurred by shots at the locals-only dive Mac's Club Deuce. Bo-rra-chi-si-mo: a condition of drunkenness that precedes hunger, quenched only by prosciutto and mozzarella sandwiches (with extra vinaigrette) from La Sandwicherie. Here's a recap: Get borrachisimo at Mac's Club Deuce. Stumble to La Sandwicherie across the street. If pals complain about Mac's dinginess or Sandwicherie's odd alleyway locale, then they are not borrachisimo enough. One more drink. One more squish of vinaigrette. Swig. Stumble. Nibble. Proceed.

Lookin' good, eh?
9. Juvia
Here's a nice place to strut your Louboutin's: Juvia, the penthouse restaurant that recently won a James Beard award for its stylish and stunning design. The spot overlooks Miami Beach and Biscayne Bay, which makes it a stellar setting for all demanding turistas. Invite your guests to an early evening drink before sunset. Look away from your red-bottom heels -- just for a moment. Take in the Magic City sights.

@Donnie, judging from all your posts here and on every topic possible, you have a problem with Cubans. Must be hard to live in Miami with such hatred.

Matheson Hammock and Fairchild Garden. Then head down Old Cutler to the Grove and dine alfresco at Greenstreet Cafe for a late lunch or early dinner...walk down to the marina and catch some tunes bayfront at Scotty's Landing. Perfect day!

Also Morro Castle, although I haven't been there in a number of years since I don't live in Miami anymore so I cannot attest to the current state of their fritas. Is Versailles just too obvious?

You guys forgot Joe's. Its old Sobe. People love it. Another spot for drinks (happy hour) at the Epic hotel. Great views. The Standard or Smith & Wollensky lunch. (views as well) Last but not least, Tootsies. There isn't anything like it anywhere. (upstairs of course)
