'Twas the week before Christmas and throughout Miami-Dade County

MIAbites readers were celebrating with tables laden with fine bounty

The airports were packed with visitors galore

As hundreds of thousands holiday revelers arrived, clogging highways, museums and retail stores

The restaurants and bars, decked out in holiday decor

Stocked Stone Crabs, Foie Gras, Waygu steaks and oh so much more

Downtown and Brickell, at Edge, Zuma and La Mar

Prix Fixe gourmet repasts for celebs and reality stars

Twinkling lights at Midtown’s Sugarcane sets the festive stage

While Proof, Salumeria 104 and Blackbrick juggled reservations just made.

Wynwood’s Panther Coffee offered gift ideas for the java aficionado

Alter and KYU, calmly handled reservation requests with little bravado

Edgewater’s Mignonette touted oysters, lobster rolls and fresh crudo

1-800 Lucky Asian food hall offers bahn mi, poke and ramen noodles

The Design District, upscale retail for last minute gift giving

Weary shoppers grab a table and dine at Michael’s Genuine or MC Kitchen

Across Julia Tuttle and onto Miami Beach

To Scarpetta, Nobu or Bird & Bone for a hot Nashville Fried Chicken feast

Sunset Harbor is buzzing with Stiltsville, NaiRaYa and Pubbelly

Food and Fitness side by side, New Years Resolutions for many

Mid-Beach hotels, The Faena and The EDITION welcome holiday guests
