This year, Tongue & Cheek's Jamie DeRosa takes on Eating House's Giorgio Rapicavoli in a duel to the death. With a host of pantry items, and one mystery ingredient, each chef will be asked to create a meal on stage -- with only one contestant earning the title of Iron Fork champion 2013.

The best meal I have had in Miami is at Scarpetta in the Fontainebleau.  The mushroom truffle polenta is the best dish in Miami.

Sometimes, you don't have to travel far to enjoy an exotic 5 star meal. My mouth watering tantalizing experience took place at Hakassan in the fountainbleau hotel during miami spice months. Picture a sunny miami day with just the amount of ocean breeze. Walking through an iconic hotel lobby i was transported to the far east. The meal started with a smoky black tea infused pork belly and a creamy congee soup. The dim sum followed with a variety of little steamed surprises that kept satisfying every corner of your palate. As a main course, the singapore vermicelli awakened your senses and warmed your body. To cool off, for dessert a jasmin infused tapioca pudding put the final touch on a great meal. Exotic flavors close to home...yum!!!

Best meal was Scarpetta, beginning with incredible polenta, expertly prepared fish, and decadent chocolate dessert. Great ocean views make it memorable every time.

The best meal I ever had was at Michy's on Biscayne Blvd.  We decided to go with the chef's meal choice on the menu which was a 7 course journey into gastronomical bliss.  Not only did the server give a detailed description of every course as he served it, but by sitting at the bar we were able to order a corresponding wine for each course which enhanced the meal two-fold.  It has been quite a while so I am unable to detail each course, but I do remember doing my happy taste-bud dance with almost every bite.

The best meal I've had was at Red Fish Grill. The ambiance  of the restaurant was breath taking. The service at the restaurant was very attentive. Lastly, but not least the food can only be described as succulent.  In addition to these elements, it was the best meal because it was the first Valentine's Day dinner I had with my loving boyfriend.

Michael's Genuine in the Design District, hands down, best meal ever: grilled cobia with a mango chutney and blackened okra with a ginger/lemon seasoning. I went for my birthday this year and I couldn't of made a better decision.

The best meal may have been at pubbelly. Its was so savory and tender, yet sweet with the marmalde. Amazing. Made my first pork belly experience so memorable.
