A mini paella dish at Lou's Beer Garden in South Beach, FL, as seen on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, episode 2409.

Lou’s Beer Garden


Don’t let Lou’s location in the backyard of a boutique hotel fool you: The food here “isn’t from your average snack shack,” Guy declares. The menu changes seasonally, but keep an eye out for the paella. Calasparra rice is soaked in homemade chicken stock and plenty of saffron, then mixed with chorizo, roasted red peppers, clams, shrimp, mussels and calamari to create a dish bursting with rich seafood flavors.
