Stone Crabs and Tacos from My Ceviche

The Play: It’s Miami. Go fish.
The Execution: Dock-fresh seafood from My Ceviche. Think: octopus burritos, tuna tacos, stone crabs and chili-lime popcorn from a James Beard–nominated chef. Also: they’ll deliver it right to your door. You really shouldn’t leave your flat-screen unattended.

Watching the Game in a SoBe Lounge

The Play: Sitting in MetLife stadium. Without having to empty your 401(k).
The Execution: Surrounding yourself with 110 feet of wraparound LEDs at Haven. It’s like being right in the middle of the action, but with better food. That’s thanks to Chef Todd’s wings and burgers. Thanks, Chef Todd.
