Restaurants in Florida

Florida cuisine is incredibly diverse, mixing European as well as African, Mexican, and Caribbean influences. Restaurants in Florida reflect these varied tastes and cultures. Bahamians, Haitians, Nicaraguans, Vietnamese, and many other cultures bring new tastes to local flavors.
There are plenty of ideas for picking Florida restaurants. Tap Tap is a colorful restaurant in Miami Beach serving up West African, French, and Caribbean fusion food. Try fried plantains, shrimp creole, or spicy conch ceviche, and top it off with a sip from their rum selection. For a famous dive-bar experience, try Singleton’s Seafood Shack in Atlantic Beach. This unassuming spot serves some of the best seafood Florida restaurants have to offer, without the fuss of white tablecloths or too much silverware.
