Cecconi's, Miami Beach, FL

Cecconi's Restaurant Review:

The prime dining real estate at this trendy outpost of Cecconi's at Soho House is in the al fresco courtyard with an overhead pergola dripping with hanging plants and twinkling light-wrapped tree trunks (and a retractable awning to protect from rain). If you prefer, sit in the small interior lounge or at the sleek bar for cicchetti (Italian tapas) such as soft, ripe Robiola cheese with almonds and honey or bresaola with pickled vegetables. Full-flavored vitello tonnato (tender chilled veal with creamy tuna and caper sauce) or salmon carpaccio with fennel and orange are a good prelude to Maine lobster spaghetti with saffron and basil or pumpkin tortelli (pastas are expensive, but some are available in half portions) or the goat cheese pizza with black truffles. The upscale South Beach setting with a possible celeb sighting makes the place impressive for power breakfasts, too.
