Most people end up finding Harrison Street while circling around looking for parking for wherever they're headed on the boulevard. Luck strikes when they zip past Lola's. Inside, chef Bob Mignola, who has worked under David Burke, Bobby Flay, and Michelle Bernstein, serves a carefully crafted menu that melds French cooking with American comfort food. A meal may start with a Brie en croute or grilled Portobello mushroom tacos with roasted poblano peppers and a sweet, tangy tomato relish. You can continue keeping it casual during the entrée with an onion-and-Muenster-cheese-topped burger, or class it up with a $34 grilled veal chop.
3. Taco Beach Shack

There's a lot of beach food on Hollywood Beach, and tacos more than fit the category. Yet the tacos and overstuffed burritos from South Beach real estate tycoon Alan Lieberman's Taco Beach Shack are a cut above the rest. Pull up a stool at the bar and order a short rib taco topped with a nuclear spicy kimchi slaw. There are also calamari and cilantro tacos as well as quesadillas stuffed with mahi-mahi, pico de gallo, and cilantro cream.
