The only thing that we don’t like about this North Miami Beach Georgian restaurant is the harsh LED lighting that reminds us of that moment when they turn the house lights on in a club. So if you’re sensitive to lighting, just ask to sit on the cute patio with a trellis and fake vines. The food here is very solid—and we like the pkhali dip platter (order some homemade bread for it), lula kebab, khinkali dumplings, and excellent adjaruli khachapuri that they mix tableside for you. But the one dish that stands out the most here is the kharcho, a beefy tomato and rice soup with a complex mixture of spices and herbs. Together with a cheesy khachapuri, it tastes like a more satisfying (and flavorful) grilled cheese and tomato soup. You should absolutely finish with the Kavkaz dessert: thin slices of sponge holding together globs of whipped cream, caramelized condensed milk, meringue, and walnuts.
