Named one of Bon Appetit’s best new restaurants in the country, Palmar in Wynwood is full of surprises. Inside, the vibe is tropical — but the cuisine here nods to flavors from the Far East. One of the few local spots doing modern Chinese right, Palmar is known for its homemade dim sum, creative riffs on fried rice, and incredible sweet and sour chicken — and those are just some of the most popular items on the menu.
