We would like to pay a tribute to one of our favorite cities in the world: Miami. We try to go multiple times a year to enjoy the food, art, and vintage shopping. It takes the same amount of time to get there from New York as it takes to drive up to Boston. Door to door. So who wouldn't prefer palm trees?

Sometimes when we're in Miami we have so much on our schedule we forget to lounge on the beach, opting to go jet skiing or dancing instead. Our favorite part of the city, however, is the food - there's enough authentic cuisine to fulfill all your worldly cravings. So skip the tourist traps on Ocean Drive and check out some must-try local favorites.
