For a first bite of new/old Miami, eat on the wild side in the heart of fringe, where the art is edgy — Shepard Fairey inside and endless graffiti — and the food clever and comforting. Chef Joseph Forest’s vaca frita and lobster mofongo set high standards. Don’t miss the plantain sliders and skewers of pork belly or grilled octopus.
