One of the few restaurants in Miami with an actual view of the water, this pricey pasta joint is also known for its links with the pretentious Il Mulino New York at Acqualina. Il Gabbiano is more relaxed than its older sibling, but is still ideal for fans of garlic, truffles and home-made pasta that's a far cry from Ragu. Spaghetti alla carbonara will set you back $25, while risotto with porcini mushrooms is a divine culinary creation with an ungodly price - $37. If you really want to splurge, there's a veal chop stuffed with pâté foie gras, fontina, prosciutto and sautéed wild mushrooms for $46. Service is old school, verging on stuffy, but what you're paying for here is the view. Considering Miami's volatile real-estate market, it makes sense.
