If your summer travels include a visit to Miami, be sure to hit up some of the restaurants on Zagat's list of the 10 Hottest New Restaurants in the city.
Zagat's picks include the much-hyped restaurant La Mar by Gaston Acurio, a ceviche bar that opened earlier this year at the lush Mandarin Orienta hotel in scenic Brickell Key. The restaurant is manned by award-winning chef Diego Oka, who hails from Peru and has worked for Acurio for over a decade.
When you've had your fill of ceviche and nothing but a burger will do, head on over to Kush Wynwood. Zagat raves about the restaurant's "exclusive tap brews, New American pub grub and brownies served with a provocative bag of 'greens'."
Another great spot in the Wynwood neighborhood is Shikany, which serves innovative global cuisine and will soon have a culinary test kitchen for cooking classes and wine tastings.
So grab your sunscreen, hit the beach and be sure to check out these hot new restaurants when you are in Miami. Also, swing by Zagat to get the full scoop on why each venue made the cut. Here's the full list:
