¡Bienvenido a Miami! To the area's Cuban population, Miami without Versailles is like rice without black beans. First-timer Miami visitors looking for that "Cuban food on Calle Ocho" experience, look no further. The storied eatery, where old émigrés opine daily about all things Cuban, is a stop on every political candidate's campaign trail, and it should be a stop for you as well. Order a heaping platter of lechon asado (roasted pork loin), ropa vieja (shredded beef), or picadillo (spicy ground beef), all served with rice, beans, and fried plantains. Battle the oncoming food coma with a cup of the city's strongest cafecito, which comes in the tiniest of cups but packs a lot of punch. Versailles operates a bakery next door as well—take some pastelitos home.
