Yardbird Southern Table & Bar tops The Daily Meal's inaugural list of the best restaurants in Miami

If it’s Thursday, it must be another list of superlatives, this time The Daily Meal’s first ever ranking of Miami’s 14 best restaurants. “In order to assemble our list of Miami’s best restaurants, we looked at not only the amount of buzz these restaurants are getting (and some of these restaurants have been buzzed about for years), but the level of critical appraisal, classic status, reliability to deliver a world-class meal, creative ingenuity of the cuisine, and quality of the overall dining experience,” explained a rep for the site. Not in consideration: chef departures, drama and all that jazz. So without further ado, here is the top ten. The top three, incidentally, also made the website’s list of 101 Best Restaurants in America*. Congrats. For the last four, click here.
