2. Amara at Paraiso
Grilling is as synonymous with the July 4th as sparklers are, which is why you should head to Michael Schwartz’s new Latin grill, Amara at Paraiso. Share a mixed-grill parrillada on the restaurant’s patio, a prime spot to see fireworks on the Intracoastal. amaraatparaiso.com.
3. Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne
The most lavish way to spend America’s birthday may be poolside at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. Tear into a full barbecue buffet during the day. At night, watch the island’s own fireworks from the sandy beach behind the resort. ritzcarlton.com.
