Traveled to Miami Lakes from VA for week long business trip. Hotel accommodations did not have an on-site restaurant, just cafe style dining. After a long day we did not feel like jumping back on the interstate searching for a nice place to eat and, although there were many chain restaurants in the area we wanted to enjoy some nice patio dining at the end of the day, even though we were not in the beach area.
We were lucky enough to find Trattoria Pampered Chef. A little oasis, hidden in a strip mall. The outside dining has lots of ambiance, water features, lights etc. The service was excellent and the food consistently superior - and we ate there three nights in a row. Multiple specials nightly and all food very reasonably priced.
I would recommend to anybody staying in the business area who wants a local place to eat and not feel as though they had just ran out to grab something to eat. We saw lots of locals dining there, birthday party, couples having a romantic date night. It seems that the locals are regulars and we were just lucky to find a place that may not be highlighted to the average business traveler. Highly, highly recommended!!
