Sometimes you eat a meal so good that it makes you want to hug random strangers on the street. Or at least plop down on the couch for a sweet, peaceful nap filled with pleasant dreams and secret farts.

Miami has plenty of restaurants that will leave you feeling that way, but North Miami especially has it going on.
