Fodor's Expert Review Matador Room

$$$ Mid-Beach Spanish Fodor's Choice

In one of Miami's most captivating and seductive settings, the latest headline restaurant by celebrity-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten fuses Spanish, Caribbean, and Latin American gastronomy, presenting the result in a diverse collection of small and large plates. Though the venue plays into a sexy matador theme, the name stems from the space's former incarnation—the eponymous, superglam supper club of yesteryear. Paying homage to its history by keeping the name, the space has now been thoroughly reinvented as well as augmented by the hanging gardens and braided lights of the alfresco Matador Terrace. Indulge on tropically inspired plates like peekytoe crab and corn fritters; wild gulf shrimp with sizzling garlic and chili oil; and charred Florida octopus with crispy potatoes and paprika emulsion.
