On any given day, I’ll get a text from a friend or a family member asking, “Where should I eat?”

If they’re in Miami Beach, there’s no shortage of great spots. That said, you can easily break the bank — and I don’t want you to do that.

This is a list of my favorite spots, places where I actually eat, my go-tos for an average Tuesday when I don’t have the time to cook for my daughters or when I want to treat myself midweek.
