Your case: It’s a weekday; you want to go out with your girlfriends to share a meal, gossip, laughs and cocktails. You are looking for a trendy place. If this is your case, go to Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill.
Where: It is located in Midtwon Miami, an area that is developing fast and where new restaurants are opening.
Cost: most dishes are around $15, however, make sure you are not extremely hungry because the dishes are tiny and are made to order all at once and to share.
What to eat: From the tapas menu, you can’t miss the dates stuffed with manchego cheese and wrapped in bacon. Try the goat cheese croquettes with membrillo marmalade. From the robata grill, the thin crust flatbread with cured tuna. The crudos are tasty. If you are craving sushi, go for the crunchy tuna...spicy! Do not leave the restaurant without having a dessert. Get the rhubarb cobbler with goat cheese ice cream; its yummy and better than the torrejas and the strawberry cheesecake parfait. Sugarcane has an extensive list of wines and cocktails and both sangrias (red and white wine) are winners.
Ambience: crowded, loud, vibrant, young
