Just when it seemed it couldn't get any hotter in Miami, three restaurants add more fuel to the fire. Art Deco takes a backseat to the Asian aesthetic and global-fusion menu at the Restaurants at the Setai (2001 Collins Ave.; 305/520-6400; dinner for two $240); you can also sample everything from Iranian caviar to a bruschetta of foie gras and black truffles at the hotel's alfresco Champagne, Caviar & Crustacean Bar. • Michelle Bernstein, who made a name for herself at Mandarin Oriental Miami's Azul, opened her first solo restaurant, Michy's (6927 Biscayne Blvd.; 305/759-2001; dinner for two $70), in January. Expect the freshest ceviche,not to mention braised duck with Jerez and peaches. • After winning over the Hollywood set, Table 8 (1458 Ocean Dr.; 305/672-4554; dinner for two $130) is going bicoastal when it opens at Miami's Regent this spring. Chef Govind Armstrong's menu will incorporate local produce and seafood, and, for a price, he'll serve the meal himself on your penthouse terrace.
