Fodor's Expert Review El Carajo
The back of a Mobil gas station is perhaps the most unexpected location for a wine bar, yet for nearly 25 years a passion for good food and drink has kept this family-run business among Miami's best-kept secrets. Tables are in the Old World–style wine cellar, stocked with bottles representing all parts of the globe (and at excellent prices). A waiter takes your order from the menu of exquisite cheeses and charcuterie, hot and cold tapas, paellas, and, of course, wine. Note that though this is an elusive spot, oenophiles are hardly deterred. Reservations are a must, as the place fills up quickly, especially since it closes by 10 pm weekdays, 11 pm weekends.
