Open since 2014 at the Mandarin Oriental, La Mar by Gaston Acurio has quickly solidified itself as one of the premiere restaurants in Miami for perfectly prepared Peruvian and fusion cuisine. This Brickell-based establishment embraces an ocean-inspired theme throughout: the inside is all dark wood with teal scale paneling across the bar, plus rich brown and teal seating throughout, and gorgeous dishes reminiscent of oyster shells plate the food magnificently. The outside, which overlooks Brickell bay and give sweeping views of the city's rising skyscrapers is even more minimalistic, with white tables and chairs and umbrellas to keep the sun's rays to a minimum.
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: La Mar's refined Peruvian-fusion cuisine, plus the enchanting views of the bay make this an excellent date locale for any couple.
- Best for Outdoor Dining Because: Who could deny La Mar after seeing their unforgettable views of Brickell Bay: gorgeous in the daytime, beautifully lit by stars and skyscrapers at night.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: As far as fine dining with a view, few places can compete with La Mar.
- Best for Brunch Because: Bottomless champagne with ceviche and chaufa (Peruvian-style fried rice) makes for a pleasant change from the usual brunch. Try it and see for yourself.
