The Hit ListMiami

Byblos, Alter, BaZi, Now on The Resy Hit List


It’s time now to welcome you to the first ever Resy Hit List for Miami. The calendar may say “Fall,” but in Miami that’s what you call a technicality. You’ve got heat for days with these, the 305’s restaurants of the moment. Grab a seat, because you are where you eat.

1/Byblos 2/Alter 3/BaZi 4/CENA by Michy 5/Continental Miami Beach 6/Seaspice 7/Quality Meats 1/Byblos Because when your bread is stuffed with truffles, you know your meal is off to a good start. The bone-in ribeye with za’tar butter is big enough to share — but you won’t want to. Wash it back with one of its boozy tea cocktails. We like the bourbon and gin spiked ginger tea that is presented on a fancy silver tray, of course. // South Beach. (305) 604-5700 2/Alter Because Brad Kilgore. Think hipster-chic, haute eats in Miami’s buzziest zip code. And with the only 4-star review of the year by the Miami Herald, it’s the restaurant everyone wants a table in. Because Brad Kilgore. // Wynwood. (305) 573-5996 3/BaZi Because the guys behind Italian staple Macchialina have proven they known a thing or two about Far East fare. Craveable edamame dumplings? Check. Duck udon? Naturally. Drinks that guarantee you’ll be calling an Uber home? You bet. // South Beach. Book Now at BaZi 4/CENA by Michy Because while you were on summer break Miami’s queen of the culinary scene, Michelle Bernstein, returned — and so is her famous fried chicken. Consider this Michy’s 2.0, complete with brand new shiny digs but with the classic dishes that made Bernstein a star. // MiMo. Book now at CENA by Michy 5/Continental Miami Beach Because when Stephen Starr serves up cheesesteak egg rolls and tiki drinks in a retro-glam diner, you don’t ask questions. You go. // South Beach. (305) 604-2000 6/Seaspice Because the Queen Bey famously broke her vegan fast here and we can see why. Decadent seafood dishes, non-stop champagne and some of the best water views in the Magic City. Oh, and more pretty people than you can count.// Miami River. Book now at Seaspice 7/Quality Meats Because carnivores want to fine dine, too. This NYC-import serves steaks that would make Fred Flintstone drool and a house-made charcuterie board that make others in town look like Oscar Meyer specials. // South Beach. (305) 340-3333
