Sebastián Yatra is the authority on energía bacana. The term, which loosely translates to good vibes, is not only the name of the Colombian singer's most recent single, but also a key quality he looks for in a restaurant. Same, Sebastián. So we asked the Latin GRAMMYs and Billboard Latin Music Award-nominated singer with South Florida roots to tell us a few of the restaurants he visits when he's looking for good food and a side of energía bacana.
See more from Sebastián Yatra and artists like Shakira, Young Miko, Feid, and Arcangel at Billboard Latin Music Week.

"It’s an unassuming spot inside a food hall with some of the best pasta in town. All the pasta is homemade and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. They have a delicious tiramisu if you want to end your meal with something sweet."
"A super cool atmosphere with quality food every time you dine there. It's a fun location for birthdays and special dinners with good friends in Miami. And when you travel, there’s another great location in New York too! It’s a delicious spot to eat when you’re in the mood for savory meats and veggies."
"If you’re craving a bagel, it’s the real deal spot in Miami. The ingredients aren't just the average and the bagels are fresh, warm, and hand-rolled. This spot is the exception to the rule that the best bagels are in New York City."
"A family-owned restaurant in Southwest Ranches where you can feel the love in the food and the recipes. When you eat there, it’s as if you’re seated in a Cuban home. And the staff makes you feel like family. It’s a relatively expansive menu, so there’s a favorite option for everyone you’re with at the table."
