Think Bal Harbour is only good for upscale shopping and its five-star accommodations, yeah, think again!

While the ritzy enclave of Bal Harbour may be small in size and best known for high-fashion and all-things-fancy, it also offers big choices when it comes to fine dining.

In fact, many of its best restaurants are tucked away within the luxurious resorts that line the beach or nestle within the centerpiece of the village, the famous Bal Harbour Shops.

We're talking about world-class cuisines ranging from your usual American dishes cooked perfectly top-notched to upscale Japanese food and French brasseries-- and they're just some of the gems to be discovered on a culinary journey in Bal Harbour.

Are you ready to drool 'til next year?
