Cafe La Trova

971 S.W. 8th St.

Best New

Dona Michelle Bernstein, Miami’s resident star, mixes with Julio Cabrera, cantinero numero uno behind the bar in Little Havana’s latest Cuban highball. She makes croquetas of octopus and black rice, trims tapas with carrot hummus, makes foie gras more luscious in crema catalana and finishes with churro waffles. Cabrero can top that, mixing the finest luquors with tropical rarities like reposado tequila with guava marmalade. His Presidente is unchallenged.
