Nicole Votano has been back and forth across the Atlantic–and the nation–several times in her career, from London, so San Francisco, to New York, so it's not entirely surprising she seems to have landed in the multi-cultural energy of Miami. These days, she's the exec chef at Le Chick, a cocktail, fried chicken, burger focused hot spot in Miami's Wynwood. When she's not at the helm, here's how she enjoys her days. Add theses picks to your list for your next vacation, or just double check you've been making the most out of your own backyard.

Splurge

If you want a special night out and are happy to splurge, you can always count on an EPIC meal with a great view at La Mar. Diego Oka's menu of Peruvian classics flipped on their head, modernized, and plated in a breathtaking manner will make you happy at any time. And it's super romantic too.

Drinks

Jaguar Sun in downtown has great drinks and delicious food to boot! Sweet Liberty on the beach has drinks by Miami's late great Best Bartender John Lermeyer and food by Michelle Bernstein (my mentor).

Shopping & Entertainment

The Citadel is an awesome mix of fun eclectic shopping meets trendy food hall located in the up and coming Little River/Little Haiti area. It has great events and music performances too. For fun shopping, don't miss the Market for Makers pop up that happens quarterly in the Design District's Moore Building.
