Istanbul Modern Restaurant
Even if contemporary Turkish art isn’t your cup of çay, visit Istanbul this repurpose warehouse museum for its stylish café and waterfront terrace. With luck, giant cruise ships won’t obstruct the postcard-perfect view of the Old Town as you tuck into a breakfast of simit (sesame bread rings), creamy beyaz peynir (feta), crunchy cucumbers, and sour-cherry jam.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Cuban expats adore Islas Canarias, located near Little Havana (there's a slightly fancier outpost in West Dade). The place serves some of Miami's best <em>ropa viejo</em>, a tender shredded beef stew whose name translates to "old clothes." That's invariably followed by thimblefuls of café cubano—sweet black espresso—and caramel-soaked flan.
We loved: Succulent arroz con pollo, available on Sundays and Tuesdays.
