Urbanite Bistro

Dinner at Urbanite Bistro in the "arts and media district," meaning down the street from the Arsht Center and next to the Vagabond. Handsome space, great music - lots of jazz which is always welcome - fantastic wine list with dozens available by the glass. Food is eclectic American. Standouts include:
- duck confit ravioli (he gets the ravioli skins from Mr. Pasta on Collins Ave)
- lamb sliders
- lemongrass mussels (you'll want extra bread for the broth)
- vegetable shu mai
- mushroom empanadas with vegan gravy
- grouper with ancho chili sauce
- whole roasted snapper (with bones and tail, just like they serve in other countries!)

I also should mention there's free valet - another nice touch.

Whether you are having an Italian meal at the Bistro or French Cuisine at the restaurant, food and drink always go very well with Cuban cigars, a number of which you can look up at cigar shop .
