Six Mango Dishes to Try in Miami: Sushi, Foie Gras, and Hedy Goldsmith Dessert
From buying buckets on the side of the road to snatching handfuls from a neighbor's tree, this time of year makes Miami go a little mad for mangoes. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will celebrate these juicy fruits at the 22nd Annual International Mango Festival on July 12 and 13, but you don't have to wait until then to indulge in the season.

Local restaurants are taking advantage of the surplus of mangoes and their sticky-sweet goodness. Here are six South Florida dishes that make the most out of this year's bounty.

If you want an Instagram-worthy meal, try the meticulously arranged foie gras poêle ($24). The pretty dish is part of the Setai's new summer menu, and it features caramelized Florida mango a la plancha, crushed amaretti cookies, and mint oil.
