Description: Whether it’s a friendly get-together, family dinner or after-work libations, Pizza & Burger at Fontainebleau Miami Beach is the perfect spot to kick-back and relax. Tables are adorned with games, a lively atmosphere, and upbeat music, making guests feel like they are at a casual backyard bash with a menu to match the vibe. Inspired by Mina’s sons and their two gastronomic obsessions – Sammy is the burger maniac, Anthony adores pizza – Pizza & Burger’s menu is modeled on what the Mina family likes to cook, serve and eat at their backyard get-togethers with family and friends. The casual dining menu consists of pizza made from scratch, rich with fresh, local ingredients and Mina’s to die for burgers – an expansion of the slate that has developed a devoted following at Michael Mina 74. Design your own salads from a checklist of fresh, tasty ingredients, or graze on an array of crave-able snacks.

Let me start by mentioning the high points: a spicy crab roll which was indeed truly awesome, and king crab legs (priced by the quarter pound) which were essentially perfect in flavor and freshness, albeit abusively priced. Now, the not so great. The kale salad with a vinaigrette dressing tasted like it had a honey mustard sauce and was overly sweet. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't very good. The half-dozen oysters, for $20, would have been perfectly sized for someone exactly 2'6" tall. They would have been too small for someone 2'7" tall and for a normal sized person, they were ridiculously tiny. And ordinary in flavor. Nothing special. That's right, tiny, way overpriced ordinary oysters. I'd say that left a bad taste in my mouth, but it didn't. It left almost no taste in my mouth because they were too small for my taste buds to find them. I ordered the fried chicken because I was in the mood for fried chicken, and as fried chicken goes, it wasn't bad, although no fried chicken in this world, that I know about, is worth the $28 that they charge. Thing is that most fried chicken falls short of what one could get at Popeye's. There, I said it, and I won't take it back. They are the gold standard by which I judge all others, because they are good, and most places don't hold up to them. The chicken at Michael Mina was good but not as good as Popeye's and at about 3x the price doing a size comparison. The dessert I had was good, but I honestly don't remember much about it. Overall, the food was good to excellent, but not worth the price that I paid.

Tucked away in the Fountainbleau Hotel is a great restaurant. Loved the Tuna poppers and king crab. Fried chicken was amazing. Service was attentive and prices reasonable.

The food was average, the service very good. I wouldn't recommend it based on the dark decor, down the basement.

The food was excellent (the brussels sprouts were amazing), the service couldn't have been better, and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We had a great time and would definitely go again!
