Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

El Palacio de los Jugos
El Palacio de los Jugos is a firm family favourite in the Flagami neighbourhood, serving up authentic Cuban food and fresh, natural juices.
Pubbelly
A critically acclaimed gastropub in Miami Beach, the small dishes at Pubbelly have an Asian twist and more than one nod from the James Beard Foundation.
Blue Collar
Lashings of waistband-busting comfort food classics are the draw at Blue Collar, Daniel Serfer’s laid-back restaurant in the MiMo Historic District.
Barton G
Barton G is one of the quintessentially OTT South Beach restaurants, lavish decor, beautiful people, over-inflated egos and great popcorn shrimp...
The Cypress Room
A timely reminder that fine dining still has its place and starched table cloths and buttoned-up waiters aren't just the reserve of period dramas.
De Rodriguez on Ocean
Owned and run by chef Douglas Rodriguez - something of a celebrity in South Beach and once name-dropped by Newsweek - De Rodriquez on Ocean serves up high-end Cuban cuisine on Ocean Drive.
Ortanique
You'd never guess that co-owner and chef Cindy Hutson was self-taught; the menu at Ortanique is to-dine-for, fusing together cuisines from South America, North America, Asia and the Caribbean.
The Forge
Scarface would have eaten here, Scarface wannabes eat here now. The wine cellar is enormous and the food - a mixture of meats and seafood - is verging on the outstanding. Book well in advance for your Wednesday night thriller.
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
The River
You can always go Downtown, someone once said - and that's exactly what we recommend you do for The River, which serves up piled-high plates of sumptuous seafood.
Khong River House
Sublimely authentic Thai food with a gin selection to match. 
La Locanda
Two small-time restaurateurs stick two fingers up at the flashy South Beach restaurants.
Juvia
With the panoramic, penthouse view, the lithe, Latino bods languidly lounging and the exquisite creations on your plate you'll need a third eye to soak it all up....
