Moriano Restaurant, Midtown
Moriano's is a sweet Argentinian place on a congested stretch of NE 2nd Ave close to the new Midtown Miami buildings. It's great for a casual lunch or a glass of wine on gallery night. The tuna panini is not so much a panini as it is a toasted baguette with a generous helping of lightly-dressed tuna salad. The pizzas are chewy and well-balanced and the emapanadas are light and flaky. Best in show are the desserts like this white chocolate cake topped with luscious strawberries. It's only $5 and worth every penny.
3221 NE 2nd Ave (between 32nd and 33rd), 786-953-8003.
