If you’re looking for where to dine with your in-laws aka los suegros then we got you.

We’re going to make a complete generalization but go with it for a few. It will work well for this roundup…Living in Miami you’re either South American or you know one very well. In this scenario, you married one.

It’s all fun and games until your South American suegros want to go out to dinner. And guess who immediately becomes their go-to for all things food-related? You’ll hear them on the phone saying, “We have no idea where we’re going—you choose, it’s up to you!” and your state of panic will commence.

Now you scramble. You’re freaking out, you’re sweating, hyperventilating is now second nature to you. You need to find the perfect place for dinner. This place needs to show your sophistication, your a.m.a.z.i.n.g palate. It needs to be a place that shows you understand food. It can’t be too stuffy, though, or you may come off as a snob.

The perfect place does exist, and thankfully, we’ve come up with a list of restaurants that are sure to W O W your in-laws, get them thinking, “damn, they married a good one,” and keep coming back for more recommendations. Soon, the “it’s up to you” is no longer a sting in your throat but like a nice warm hug embracing your amazing taste. They will keep coming back for more, which may suck but at least you’re on their good side. Right?
