No. 2: Coca-Cola BBQ Beef Ribs From Lola's on Harrison

Boutique restaurant Lola's on Harrison is the kind of pleasant, affordable place that makes good food seem like a right of every South Floridian. There, chef Michael Wagner takes comforting dishes and transforms them into something more -- the purple potato skins with American caviar; the salmon tartare with jalapeno chili oil. But then there's his superb, dramatically presented passel of Coca-Cola barbecued beef short ribs ($22), a mountain of silky, fall-off-the-bone meat brilliantly balanced between hot, sweet, and sour, topped with super-sized buttermilk onion rings so light and airy that they seem to float. Paired with creamed corn flecked with tarragon, this is a summer barbecue gone wild with flavor. You remember every rib you've ever eaten, the smell of slow-cooking in August, and cold bottles of soda, and at the same time, you've made a new memory that overlaps and interweaves with the old, deepening your appreciation for good living. --Gail Shepherd
