The 50 finest things happening in Miami’s culinary scene right now.

Employees Only
The speakeasy vibe at Employees Only is hard to beat, but thanks to the well-tested efforts of folks like principal bartender Danilo Bozovic, this hot spot boasts both style and substance. Case in point: the Madame Hung, made of Campari shaken with strawberry puree, fresh lemon juice, a dash or two of bitters and topped with prosecco. The garnish? A flamed sage. Coral House, Washington Park Hotel, 1030 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 786.264.3945

Beaker & Gray
Bar manager Ben Potts takes care of the “beaker” part at Beaker & Gray with cocktails that surprise, but never try too hard. Among his must-ask-for-it specialties is the Pear Necessities, a punch made with pisco, Pineau des Charentes, sauvignon blanc-poached pears and rosemary. As he describes it: “It’s a drink inspired not by what you want, but what you really need to make your summer complete.” 2637 N. Miami Ave., Miami, 305.699.2637

The St. Regis Bar & Sushi Lounge
Leave it to the folks at The St. Regis to bring panache to mixology. The hotel just partnered with Lalique to offer three signature cocktails served in the revered brand’s stemware. The Eternal is inspired by Lalique’s Butterfly series by Damien Hirst and made with Hendrick's gin, elderflower liqueur, grapefruit bitters and fresh grapefruit juice. Fork over $200 and the crystal accoutrements go home with you. The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, 9703 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour, 305.993.3300
