Leku is a Basque restaurant inside Allapattah’s Rubell Museum. Like a proper museum restaurant, the food here is really pretty. The Galician octopus is beautifully plated (and very delicious), the Iberian ham is arranged in a pretty spiral, and even the seafood paella is symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing. The best part, though, it that it all tastes really good. This is a restaurant that'll make you want to Google facts about Claude Monet so you can talk about art while you eat. But, luckily for you (and your dining partner) the food is interesting enough to be the topic of discussion. There’s both outdoor and indoor seating, and one of the best museums in Miami is also about ten steps away.
