They have indoor and outdoor dining. It’s easy to get a reservation. The location is good, so is the vibe, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Miami needs more places like this and Apeiro, in the city’s Midtown neighborhood, offers all of the above.

Apeiro means "infinite" in Greek and the extensive menu covers some favorite Mediterranean dishes. Just about everything is perfect for sharing. The Grilled Spanish Octopus ($18) was so delicious I wish I hadn’t shared it. Come to think of it I could have eaten the Tuna Tartare ($17) and the Chopped Kale Caesar ($12) all by myself too. Not because the portions were small but because they were all pretty tasty. Not being a huge fan of picking the bones out of my fish I asked for the whole Roasted Branzino ($36) to be fileted and had it with a nice side of Brussel Sprouts ($8). Since I never want to offend the pastry chef, I finished the meal with the Wood-Oven Baked Apple Crostata with salted caramel sauce, toffee crumble and cinnamon gelato. Yes, it was quite the sacrifice on my part to have to eat it. But what can I say? I’m a giver.

We sat outside on a balmy Friday night in January and it was packed. Come for dinner, come for a drink, hang out, enjoy, stay as long as you like but make sure and leave your ‘tude at home.
