Fodor's Review

Originally the brainchild of award-winning Miami chef Kris Wessel (of Chopped fame), the Florida Cookery redefined Florida cuisine when it opened. Now that Wessel is gone, it lacks the wow factor it once had but it still delivers taste sensations crafted from just about all things Florida—local fish, stone crabs, and spiny lobster to alligator, Indian River County grapefruit, hearts of palm, and kumquats. Start with the empanadas trio (curry chicken, ropa vieja,

and alligator) or the corvina tiradito. Splurge on the Miami Paella for your main—a massive skillet of Florida fresh seafood, chorizo, and yellow rice.
