What we had: Graziano’s claims to be “the home of damn fine Argentine,” and they certainly live up to the title. During Miami Spice, the collection of family-owned restaurants will serve curated lunch and dinner menus across its four locations spotlighting authentic Argentine dishes. Although we’re not sure how Argentine this dish is, for lunch, we recommend the signature Butcher’s Burger, made with ground Angus beef short rib, Miami Smokers Heritage bacon, tomatoes, fried egg and truffle fries. If you’re vegetarian, go for the Hongos y Espinaca — grilled Asado-style veggies served on fettuccini). Dessert is a vanilla flan with housemade dulce de leche that will blow your abuela’s rendition of the water. You can even add wine pairings for an additional $15.
Who should go: Each of Graziano’s four locations offers a laid-back neighborhood-style vibe. Families are definitely welcome, and the intimate no-frills atmosphere makes it perfect for a fuss-free date night or lunch among colleagues.
