The Spillover Restaurant Review

: In addition to The Spillover, where else in Miami can you get BBQ gator ribs? Probably nowhere, and even at this neighborhood fish shack only 15 orders a day are offered. While the end result is more gimmick than actual meat, they're still worth a try, much like everything else here. Matt Kuscher's third concept might be a departure from his gourmet burger and craft beer theme, but it makes sense for Miami, a place surrounded by water but with limited options as to where you can eat a fish sandwich or lobster Reuben in flip flops and without paying premium prices. This is that spot. Be wary of how you order: forego the smoked fish dip (priced at $11 for a dollop and with nothing overly special about it) and instead go heavy with Gulf shrimp mac & cheese. Keep to local selections such as whole fried Florida seafood. A global and well-rounded selection of ciders, meads and sours gives guests plenty to think about and sip. Ask for the daily specials or try something from Spain to witness the long pour method that adds fizz and new dimensions of flavor. Finish with Kuscher's mom's guava bread pudding that will have you spooning up every last drop. There's also a menu for pups to enjoy on the outdoor patio, so you don't need to leave your best friend at home while you go out.
