The restaurant: db Bistro Moderne, 255 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami. Executive chef Jason Pringle masterfully blends French techniques and seasonal ingredients into high-end fare at a more approachable price point than his boss, Daniel Boulud, commands at his Michelin-starred flagship in New York.
The table: 1. Bring a few friends next time you go to db and be sure to book the best seat in the house: Table 1 inside the Wine Cave. Between the lounge and dining room, the wine cave is actually a glass tower stacked with hundreds of bottles. It’s private, it’s baller, and it comes at no extra charge.
Nearby theater: Knight Concert Hall, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami.
