T+L Reports: Miami's Hot Restaurants

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.
