Porcao is a cool restaurant in Brickell.  It's a Brazilian steakhouse, it's no  Fogo de Chao, but its the only one of its type in Miami.

nooooo, porcao is not a very good churrascaria(ive been to many).  go to texas de brazil in the dolphin mall, its much better.

Croquetdc:

I assume the Johnson Institute is the summer program. No, I'm not going to be there for that. Just apt hunting in June, so i might as well start finding good restaurants. I like cheap food. My husband, on the other hand, likes pricey places. I usually win out :)

Thanks for all the restaurant tips everyone. I'll definitely try them ALL (eventually!!)

i've been to the porcao in rio.  very high quality.  i would assume it would be the same in the united states, only much, much more expensive.

Can anyone recommend some good cheap restaurants (places locals would recommend)? I want to start trying places out when I'm there in June :) I always try to find a good pizza, thai, indian, chinese and sushi place.

keyword being cheap.. hmm.. Pasha's is great for Middle Esatern food.. like Shishkabobs and stuff.. they have excellent deals and they have two locations: Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach and Another one in the Design District.. i'd go to the former.. since the one in the Design District has irregular hours..

Italian Food (like really authentic stuff) I'd recommend Rosinella's .. they have one location in Brickell and another in Lincold Road Mall.. both are great.. I lived in Florence for one year, and thats the closest to authentic italian food i've found..

Pizza.. there are many places that have that real thin and crispy european-style pizza.. like Spris.. one location in Lincoln Road and another in Coral Gables..

Thai.. there is a little restaurant on Sunset Drive (9999 Sunset Drive, to be exact) called Siam Palace.. it is absolutely awesome! The decor, the food, the service.. all top-notch..

I think some other people in this thread mentioned some Indian places before, too..

I am getting psyched. Is anyone else planning to live in Brickell?? It's only like a ten minute drive to school against traffic and I found a really great place.

Anyone bringing a pet with them to school?? I am moving with my little dog and Florida has some crazy bugs. I hope she will be able to adjust to all the new surroundings.



I would like to.  Need a roommate?  jk...kindof.  What complex will you be in if you dont mind me asking?

When in June are folks going down to search for apartments?  I think I'm headed down the first part.  Have you found craigslist helpful?  Any apartment listing service seem superior?

Akashi on US 1 near Sunset is really good for sushi... not super cheap, but not outrageous.

On 73rd Street (off of US 1 behind Einstein Bagels) is a really good Lebanese restaurant called Khoury's. 

Good Thai is farther south at Tani Thai.  It's between 128 and 144 on US 1.  I really can't remember which street I turn off of, my fiance always has to remind me.
