Usually, we have to drive out west to find a place like Smart Bites, but this restaurant that feels more like a farm is in Allapattah. The very casual, kind-of-healthy food here is fine, with things like turkey sandwiches, spinach ravioli, and a handful of burger options. But the best part about this place is the backyard, which is huge and feels somewhere between an actual garden and a beer garden. There’s also a stage where you might see occasional live music or a small gathering of iguanas.
