My wife and daughter and a friend took the Miami area by storm last weekend. Dinner one night was at the restaurant at the Delano. The Delano can be quite an experience, but unfortunately this one was marred by mediocre food and a lousy waitress. (Kudos to the sommalier who was trying to repair some of her damage.) Apparently the Delano has had a big makeover, but that hasn't reached the restaurant. Contrast this with the new Jean-Georges restaurant in the St. Regis at Bal Harbour ("spectacular") or Il Mulino in Aventura ("wonderful"). The ladies went to both the following two evenings and experienced what fine dining should be: excellent food and thoughtful service.
