Exert from the Miami Travel Guide

Miami, Florida is a sprawling cosmopolitan city known for its deep cultural heritage, over the top personality and wide array of entertainment.

The Hispanic and Caribbean influence soon becomes evident upon arrival. From Spanish conquistadors to immigrants from neighboring Latin-American nations; Spanish-speakers have played a huge role in the evolution of Miami.

Cubans have had a presence in the city for awhile thanks to Cuba being in such close proximity to Miami. After Fidel Castro’s rise to power in 1959, the influence of Cubans further increased as waves of them left their homeland to flock to Florida’s shores.

Cubans brought with them unique styles of music and dance, such as rumba and conga, as well as their language and delicious food.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach

Just the Place to Be..

written by: lilitmarkos

If you are looking for a great place to unwind at and with great food to boot – then a visit to Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach should be on the very top of your list. I recently had the chance to go to the place for a pre-tasting and I was bowled over, not just over its sophisticated layout design but also over the wonderful cuisine and gastronomic delights that its menu boosts of.

Upon entering Pearl Restaurant, you can feast your eyes on the magnificent visual display of color and style – Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach’s choice of white décor with orange highlights accentuated by the amber lighting gives the place a feeling of chic and comfort at the same time. The place is warm and welcoming, reflected by the courteous and efficient staff who will serve you as soon as you set foot inside the restaurant.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach presents its diners with a variety of dining location choices to choose from – Pearl Restaurant houses a spacious indoor dining area and a sunken champagne bar for a traditional dining experience. At the same time however, one can opt for an open space dining experience along its terrace dining area that affords one a wonderful front view of the ocean.

When one opens the menu, an array of an extensive offering that includes Asian, European and Western cuisine, to name a few, will immediately tantalize with their mouth watering description and beg for a chance to be tasted in that one sitting. And of course, what is a fine meal without the best choice of drinks and cocktails to go with it. At Pearl Restaurant, a wide selection of cocktail drinks are available that are sure to leave the patrons with a fun feeling and possibly a desire for more. And to top it all off, Pearl Restaurant offers a selected list of caviar to customers to ensure full gastronomic satisfaction upon costumer consumption.

At night Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach is transformed into a pulsing, breathing thing that pulls people to it with its amazing décor, chic coziness and wonderful dining experience. With a bit of music and tons of enjoyment to offer, the restaurant and lounge is fast becoming one of the “in” places to see in the neighborhood.

And so the moment of truth arrives. After a short time of waiting for my menu choices, the food finally arrives. For this ‘visit, I have decided on: For dinner food tasting it started off with an appetizer of Italian eggplant and goat cheese mousse, together with marinated beet, micro Mache salad and raspberry Air. While for the main course, I have decided on the chef’s choice of flame grilled “Akaushi”, 8 oz Succulent Tenderloin beef. The food definitely tasted really good – the cheese smelled so good and melted in the mouth and the tenderloin beef was just oozing deliciousness.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach is a gem of a place to have out here at Nikki beach.

The place is beautiful and the people are also wonderful – Pearl Restaurant must be commended for its staff. The people are accommodating and know a lot about the concept and menu choices, they can easily guide and assist you to come up with the best gastronomic choices. The staff is also very attentive and their overall uniform theme jibes with the retro concept of the restaurant.

Lately, there are only a small number of places that have made me smile but my wonderful experience with and at the Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach have convinced me that there are more wonderful restaurants and lounges out there that are just waiting to be discovered. Try it and see for yourself – Pearl Restaurant is just the place to be at right now.
