From Mexican, to Japanese, to Caribbean, to your American favorites, Miramar has something that will please everyone. Tijuana Flats and Silver Spoon are popular local restaurants with bars. The Tex-Mex fare at Tijuana Flats is served up fast, but don't mistake it for your typical fast food! Any day is a good day for sushi at Silver Spoon, although its mid-week specials shouldn't be missed. The garlic rolls at La Famiglia are definitely praise-worthy, while the sweet potato fries with marshmallow cream sauce at Bokamper's Sports Bar and Grill might not pass the healthy diet test, but you'll certainly be happy you ordered them! Bokamper's is a great place to go and watch sports. Don't worry if your date isn't into football, though because a DJ spins during commercials. While Miramar excels at small low-key places with a rabid local following, if you're looking for a high-energy night club that'll have you trying out your best moves on the dance floor into the wee hours of the morning, you want to venture a little bit outside of the city to Miami or Fort Lauderdale for a rousing night out.
