Miami: Restaurant at the Setai
2001 Collins Ave.; 305-520-6400

With its hot Latin vibe and design-conscious South Beach hotel restaurants, Miami's dining scene has long been considered the sexiest in the country. The city keeps on sizzling, and these days there's some serious cooking going on beneath all the glitz.

A pan-Asian fantasy designed by Jean-Michel Gathy of the fabulous international Aman resorts, the Setai overshadows even South Beach's splashiest restaurants. Watch as wok and tandoor masters in the exhibition kitchen prepare delicacies like Burmese lobster bisque and red-curry duck with lychees. Save room for the Franco-Asian sweets. Dinner for two, $140.
