Best Italian (expensive)2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
1311 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139
Escopazzo wins the top spot because of its ever-evolving menu, which has been keeping up with the Miami restaurant shuffle since 1993. Chef Giancarla Bodoni was doing organic in South Beach way before it became fashionable, and she continues to source the best ingredients from local farmers. She remains flexible in terms of her cooking style, creating plates around the freshest produce and proteins available. Bodoni is famous for her ricotta-stuffed pumpkin tortelli ($29) and veal involtino, wrapped around a creamy proscuitto and mushroom ragout filling ($32). Nevertheless, take a chance on the tasting menu (three, five, or seven courses for $50, $75, or $100) to be rewarded with an array of the chef's more innovative tastes.
