Amara at Paraiso by Michael Schwartz in Miami

Amara at Paraiso, the latest restaurant from James Beard Award-winning chef-restaurateur Michael Schwartz, opened in January in the middle of a gleaming new Miami condo complex in the Edgewater neighborhood. Schwartz describes the restaurant as a "love letter to Miami," and diners are bound to love it back, dining critic Mike Mayo writes. Amara features stunning views of Biscayne Bay and Latin-inspired cuisine, with an array of delectable grilled and roasted meats, seafood and vegetables. Schwartz and executive chef Michael Paley, who rose to prominence at restaurants in Louisville and Austin, traveled around South Florida and Argentina for inspiration in developing the menu.
