Jeremy Ford is proud to be stubborn, and that insistence on freshness has made his menu small and name big in Miami as well as New York. He demands foie gras, black truffles, Japanese koji grain and osetra caviar yet his kitchen has more fun with pickled ramps, Florida corn and candy cane beets. Doesn’t have to be fussy: Try his Florida clam BLT.
