Lincoln road is very pleasant for a stroll at a sunny afternoon and a nice glass of white wine besides a water fountain. The funny thing is that there are two starbucks coffee located across the street from each other, which reminds you a scene in “Shrek II”. When invaded by unfriendly forced, people can run from One starbucks shop to the other one just cross the street.
Restaurants are located one after another on both sides of the street, which reminds me of Champs Elysees in Paris. It’s a place for people to enjoy the sun, a glass of chilled white wine, the people-watching, and a leisure afternoon.
And, of course, I got to do something silly to spice things up. :)
Espanola supposes to have hosted some colorful characters throughout the years, including Al Capone and the crew from Miami Vice. Tim and I found the place is a pleasant but over-rated two-block with a few of restaurants. The restaurant at the center of Espanola does serve interesting cock-tails though. Have you ever tried or even heard of pineapple, mango and pepper? Here you go… It has a perfect blend of sweetness from tropical fruit juice and coconut rum. The hint of spice gives you an extra kick for a sunny afternoon.
South Beach Miami is a typical beach town for parties, drinks and going crazy. when the sun lights gradually goes away and people receding from the beach, the restaurants along the Ocean Drive would entice you with their party music or jazz, beatutiful girls wears as little as possible, the mouth-watering food display on the street and mixed flavor of grilled lobster and cigar.
Restaurants at Lincoln street or Ocean Drive are mostly tourist-oriented. For better food, you might want to go a couple of blocks away/off from the crazy party people.
Key lime pie is a must-have in Miami. It supposes to taste uniquely because of the little limes only growing in Key West.
Back to Lincoln Road at Night
Lincoln road has a couple really trendy bars. Just walk long the street, you won’t miss them! I like to order a drink with sexy and trendy name with seductive colors.
