Because we were attending a performance at the Miami Lakes Theatre we decided to find a spot to eat that allowed us to indulge in our tendency to "park once." We discovered the charming area called "Main Street" where there is an interesting grouping of shops, services and restaurants. The latter include Japanese, French, Italian and a somewhat out-of-the-way spot called El Novillo, featuring Nicaraguan food.
The facility is lovely - "appropriate" architecture and decoration and music to set the atmosphere. The staff greeted us warmly and carefully directed us to a quieter area away from a large group that was having a celebration.
The food was traditional Nicaraguan nicely prepared and presented. The wait staff was eager to clarify the items on the menu and make suggestions when asked. The ceviche was one of the best, if not the best, that I have ever had. The churrasco was perfectly cooked at the requested temperature, flavorful and tender.
