The ambiance of Grass invokes dinner in paradise with cushy white banquettes, plush sofas, and a full bar illuminated by a wall of apothecary jars brimming with colorful flora. 

A carpet of thick grass borders the dining room; bonsai plants, bamboo trees and climbing vines cast lovely shadows on the walls. A wall installation of protruding hands lends a surreal quality to the décor.

The Tiki-chic eatery -- surrounded by vines, bamboo, and cozy banquettes -- is all outdoors, so it's weather-permitting, but when it's nice out, it's a stunning departure from the rest of Miami's ultramodern restaurants. An indoor dining area and lounge made this an all-season restaurant -- but most importantly, the food's always fresh. After dinner, check out the latest to sprout up on the expanding Grass -- the King Is Dead -- a strangely named, fabulously hip cocktail lounge.
