James Beard nominee Hedy Goldsmith is the mastermind behind the pastry program at this restaurant, meaning that everything that is on the menu is sure to be a hit.

The Pot de Crème flavored with whatever fruit is in season is a standout, as it provides a taste of local fruit that Miami has to offer.
