Mignonette brings New-England-style seafood to Miami by way of this cool gas-station-cum-oyster-bar in the heart of Edgewater
Hit up the Edgewater neighborhood’s casual yet classy haunt, located across from a historic Miami cemetery. An old-school marquee hanging above the kitchen maps out your next adventure in oysters. There are usually about eight options, and it’s okay to ask for help when making a selection (if you’re not familiar with the flavor profile of bivalves from British Columbia, for instance). The vibe here is not pretentious. Classic seafood preparations, prime rib, hearty lobster rolls, soups and an extensive list of veggie sides round out the menu. We recommend taking a close look at the wine list before ordering the same old Chardonnay. It’s divided into several sections that recommend varietals by style (tart+fruity), food order (for crudo) and more.
Time Out tip: Two words: make reservations. Most Miami restaurants will typically squeeze in walk-ins but Mignonette’s cozy dining rooms just don’t have the space to accommodate anyone who doesn’t call ahead—especially at dinner, when wait times are the longest.

I try not to visit the same restaurant twice, especially the places where dinner consistently sets me back more than $100, but I can't seem to quit Mignonette. It's expensive but still a fantastic value when you consider the quality of seafood and service they provide. While I've tried most dishes on the menu, I keep coming back for one thing: the lobster roll with a side of roasted cauliflower. This is not a wimpy lobster roll. It's a big, buttery sandwich with chunks of lobster claw meat. Doesn't get better than that.
