Must try: Ahi Tuna Tartare, Open Faced Dungness Crab Club Sandwich

Tableau might be one of the best-kept secrets at the Wynn.

This elegantly whimsical restaurant is tucked away in a serene corner of the Wynn Hotel. Overlooking a pool and garden, Tableau offers a luxurious breakfast and lunch menu. The food here is top-notch as is the service and the prices.

Known for its Saturday and Sunday brunch – Tableau really offers a wonderful respite from the brisk pulse of the Vegas beat.

Here is some of what we ate:

Dishes not to miss: Pan Onion fried chips, Heirloom tomato salad with burrata, Tangerine creamsicle pot de creme
 

Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is possibly one of the best food experiences Miami has to offer. Set in the funky Design District, Chef/Owner Michael Schwartz has created a casual bistro, which is an ode to “Genuine Food & Drink”.

Michael Schwartz is a leader in the farm to table movement and was recently awarded the prestigious 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: South.

Schwartz’s passion for the freshest, finest ingredients is evident in the truly superb fare he has to offer. Each dish is composed in honor of every component that has been utilized. The results are just divine.

I love that there are no pretensions here. People come here to enjoy simple New American, ingredient-driven cuisine at really affordable prices and I’m all about that!

THICK CUT POTATO CHIPS WITH PAN FRIED ONION DIP
