Fusion fare so well executed and so consistent, Balans has become a staple in Miami Beach dining. Particularly interesting on Sunday mornings, when the intelligent few who opted to stay in on Saturday night gather early with newspapers and dogs.

Shrubbed and contemporary, Balans is Lincoln Road’s most prestigious patio spot for watching Miami’s real people. The evenings find Balans packed to the rafters with those in search of an interesting light meal, a bottle of wine and interesting, light conversation. The exotically concocted salads are a favorite here, but their mile-high lobster club sandwich beats all the items on the menu combined. Balans is proof that simple, high-end food and a youthful environment don’t have to mean exorbitant prices.
