Restaurant Critic Roundup: Whisk Gourmet in Miami Impresses

Every Wednesday, The Daily Meal rounds up a slew of restaurant reviews across America

Whisk Gourmet's Skirt Steak

As always, the ratings range from stars to bells to beans, but every review offers specialized insight into the food, atmosphere, and service of eateries in each city’s dining scene and the critics eating at them.

This week in Boston, the recently reopened Olives comes back with an average rating of 2 stars. Find out if it’s better or worse after its reopening.

In Miami, Whisk Gourmet is referred to as a "gem." The skirt steak, shrimp and grits, and buttermilk fried chicken are Southern favorites that thrive in this South Florida restaurant.

Michael Bauer insists you try the not-so-typical Mexican restaurant Comal in San Francisco. He raves and gives the restaurant 3 stars. 

From the East Coast to the West Coast, from North to South, the weekly restaurant critic roundup is here for all of your dining out needs.
