Celebrity Cruises' new expert panel, called "Global Insiders," provides travel tips for 150 ports. Here, chef Marc Murphy suggests where to eat in Miami, one of Celebrity’s main ports:
Mandolin Aegean Bistro "I love to get a lot of mezes to share, like sucuk, a Turkish chorizo, and stuffed zucchini with eggplant." mandolinmiami.com.
Macchialina "They hand-make all their pastas, and my absolute favorite is the tagliolini ai funghi with abalone mushrooms and Parmigiano." macchialina.com.
Joe's Stone Crab "On occasion, I'll splurge on the Alaskan king crab, but my favorite is the stone crab. It's fresh and juicy, and it never disappoints." joesstonecrab.com.
