South Beach has a lot of overrated restaurants with inflated prices serving mediocre food. The team behind Pubbelly figures it’s better to try to attract locals, and hopefully the tourists will come. The menu here is a hybrid of Puerto Rican and South Florida, with a fair amount of well-prepared and sliced sushi mixed in among the mofongo and soft serve ice cream desserts (pictured). Atmosphere is fun too, with plenty of local color and great alfresco dining.
