Miami New Times' Description

The new AltaMare is bigger, busier, and better than the old Alta Mar, which itself was no slouch. The classically elegant dining room is also better-looking. Chef Simon Stojanovic honed his craft under the tutelage of Michael Schwartz, and the influence is obvious: The daily-changing menu is more a Mediterranean mash than that of his mentor, but it showcases similar sustainable sourcing such as local organic produce, free-range and organic meats, and line-caught seafood. The chef also baits the hook with the restless worm of intelligent creativity. Whether it be sweet, papaya-colored cara cara oranges brightening crunchy palm heart shavings, chive snippets, and sprinkles of sea salt over a pink/white quiltwork carpaccio of local sheepshead fish, or yellow jack fish plunked atop a broth-based ragout of cipollini onion and artichoke, or Fudge Farms boneless pork chop wrapped in crisped, cured fatback, the flavors are fresh, vibrant, delicious. An Italy-centric wine list showcases more than 200 bottles. Desserts, such as a deconstructed tiramisu, are excellent as well. The old Alta Mar wasn't broken, but owner Claudio Giordano somehow fixed it.

    On the quieter side of Lincoln Road, this low key neighborhood fave is known for fresh fish, pasta and Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova sightings. [Eater 38 Member]

    Excellent tuna tartare, grouper cheek and day scallops! What a nice addition to the 1200 block of lincoln road.

    Nightly fresh-fish specials are a tasty treat from this tiny Miami spot located among chain restaurants. Sit on the patio and indulge in Italian seafood - perfect for a first date.
