May I have the good advice of the Forum’s cognoscenti? On 17 December I arrive at MIA at 10.00hrs from Grand Cayman and depart at 19.10hrs for LHR on the AA 777-300ER for LHR. It will be my 55th birthday and between flights I’d like to go somewhere special for lunch. I will be on my own. Does anyone have any recommendations? I’d like somewhere where I can lunch Al fresco. From the Wallpaper Guide to Miami The Raleigh Pool Bar looked like somewhere to consider.12th December 2015 at 12:27 #459219
Season has started for us so you may want to avoid Ocean Drive (tourist trap venues) and Collins Avenue properties (heavy traffic). I would recommend JUVIA MIAMI – http://www.juviamiami.com/ – delicious food, great views and inside/outside seating options. Also, you can walk to Lincoln Road (2 minutes away) if you want to do a bit of holiday shopping.12th December 2015 at 17:22 #459220
Downtown Miami, as opposed to South Beach.
How about Mandarin Oriental if you’re after a ‘hotel restaurant’.12th December 2015 at 18:32 #459221
Thank you both of you – I like the idea of both your recommendations.13th December 2015 at 00:50 #459222

Thank you Martyn. I will reflect on what you say over lunch and toast you and all Forum contributors. I feel very privileged that my 50’s have given me the opportunity to travel more often and extensively than before and in greater style and comfort.14th January 2016 at 00:27 #459224
Right on the airport property but a taxi ride away is the 94th Aero Squadron Miami Restaurant. http://www.94thmiami.com. It is located at 1395 NW 57th Ave. This is a really great place to eat, out of the terminal and without the hustle of traffic to South Beach. I recently ate here as part of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary yearly Change of Watch. I highly recommend it.
