The Cadet Hotel, 1701 James Avenue, South Beach

Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, this French restaurant's wine consultant Patrick Marc Guest scrutinizes each of their revolving 241 wines. Their non-commercial wines come from private "boutique-type" wineries, meaning you might find one you've never even heard of before. Expect French food with a creative twist, such as the "'Reinvented' Traditional 'Duck A L'Orange.'"

This hidden bar has it all, with art on the walls and live music usually playing in the background.

El Carajo International Tapas & Wines

2465 SW 17th Avenue, Coral Way

This unassuming gem is part Spanish restaurant, part bakery, part wine store. Ignore the gas station on the other side of the building, because the global wine selection is worth the trip. Consider it your personal, secret wine cellar and tapas stop. Make a reservation for dinner, then get the Gambas Al Ajillo (Shrimp in Garlic Sauce) or the Chorizo with Valencia rice. They also do brunch.
