Chef Hedy Goldsmith reviews Florida avocado salad at The Dutch Miami
$$$ | Modern | American
South Beach
"This salad is perfectly balanced and packed with flavor. Buttermilk dressing is the perfect pairing with the juicy citrus and fennel. It's like they were made for each other."
Chef Dale Talde reviews Blue crab crostini at Locanda Verde
$$$ | Italian
"Everything here is awesome, but the blue crab jalapeño crostini is my favorite. It is simple and rustic, but full of flavor and perfectly balanced. The thin slice of jalapeño on top gives it the perfect foil for the sweet crab meat."
Chef Harold Dieterle reviews Lemon tart at Locanda Verde
$$$ | Italian
"Karen Damasco’s dessert is my favorite dessert to eat, hands down. The dish has such complex textures for such an easy recipe. It comes with lemon confit on top and it's part-cake, part-pudding. It's also served with buttermilk ice cream. Karen was nice enough to give me the recipe, but mine never comes out as good as hers."
