Map
501 Lincoln Rd., Miami, FL 33139, United States

YUCA, which stands for Young Upscale Cuban-American, caters to just that crowd, and power brokers and the political class love to network at this Miami Beach destination. Crowds arrive for the weekend salsa dancing in the upstairs lounge (lessons are available for the inexperienced), as well as Yuca's Nuevo Latino cuisine created by chef Douglas Rodriguez. Try the plantain baskets filled with shrimp and conch or a cross-cultural dish, such as the Cuban-Italian sun-dried tomato and basil gnocchi with veal picadillo. The casual dining room with beige walls and muted artwork is highlighted by brightly colored mosaics and a purple-lit bar, while the palm tree-lined sidewalk seating includes tent-covered tables.
