33 Outdoor Eateries in Miami

I came across a terrific list of outdoor eateries across South Florida on miami.eater.com and know I will be sharing it with out-of-town clients often. I would add a few places, including Peacock Cafe in Coconut Grove. But I still think it’s a great reference list. What would you add?
