Good Cuban food in Miami?

I'm headed to Art Basel with a few friends in December and none of us have ever really had good Cuban food before, so where should we get some in Miami?  We want a place to grab a quick Cuban sandwich and we'd also like to check out at least one decent sit-down restaurant.

    Puerto Sagua Restaurant -extremely authentic, cuban luncheonette in Miami Beach

    Havana Harry's is a more inventive spin on cuban, but very delicious in Coral Gables area

    Casa Larios - in South Miami, a really simple and authentic place.

    Sunil,

    My recommendation for a good sit down Cuban Restaurant is someplace that is not considered a tourist trap and provides a most delicious selection of Cuban food....try Las Vegas Cuban Cuisine .

    I only went to one Cuban place in Miami: Puerto Sagua Restaurant. I had the oxtail stew there and it was amazing! I highly recommend it if you like oxtail and the plantains were pretty good too.

    Last week I stayed at the Fontainebleau. More than one local person mentioned Puerto Sagua Restaurant as a great place to try. I didn't go myself, but I always trust the locals...

    There are two very well known Cuban restaurants in Miami try either Versailles or La Carreta I would avoid Yuca Restaurant

    The beauty of Cuban food at the first two mentioned is that is is plentiful and inexpensive. Yuca is very trendy and expensive. To find a good sandwich just drive on 8th Street and look for the cafes on every corner.

    You are probably gonna love the food at La Esquina Del Lechon Pork & Steakhouse .

    Located at 8601 NW 58th St #101, Doral, FL 33166 is only 20 minutes from Art Basel.
