The Hit ListMiami

Bachour Bakery + Bistro, Farinelli 1937, PB Station, Now on The Resy Hit List


MIA finally gets a taste of Paris with their new, now permanent, macaroon shop. All things considered, the food scene is looking real good right about now. Your navigation has arrived so grab a drink and a seat, a fresh new Hit List is right this way.

1/Bachour Bakery + Bistro
Because when pastry king Antiono Bachour is creating the desserts you go, immediately. His new, self titled bistro features all of his Insta-worthy sweets + oh so savory items like truffle topped breakfast sandwiches, tuna tartines, and egg jars served with extra crispy pork belly, you know, for good measure. // Brickell. (305) 330-6310.

2/Farinelli 1937
Because authentic Neapolitan pizza is just what the Grove needed. Go for the polenta fritters and wood fired, burrata topped pizza, but stay for the creamy seafood lasagna. Wash it all back with a glass (or three) of bubbles. Prego. // Coconut Grove. Book now on Resy.

3/PB Station 
Because the Pubbelly Boys have ventured off the island and you couldn’t be more thankful. For their latest restaurant creation, imagine classic Americana cuisine flipped on its head. Who knew seafood charcuterie paired perfectly with a cracker jack cocktail? Also, dinner with a view. What’s up? // Downtown Miami. (305) 420-2205.

4/Zuuk Mediterranean Kitchen
Because you have #summerbod goals — but also like to eat. Enter Zuuk, the latest concept from the My Ceviche team features Mediterranean plates so delicious you won’t believe they are actually good for you. No fryers here. The spicy sauce = key. // Brickell. (305) 200-3145.

5/Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market 
Because your cup should always runneth over with sake, and Dragonfly will make sure of it. This authentic Izakaya is one part traditional Japanese eatery and one part good time. Rolls on point, robata carries a smokey bite and drinks boozy enough to get the party going. // Doral. (305) 222-7447.

6/Plant Food + Wine
Because vegan raw cuisine can be tasty when it’s prepared by mega Chef Matthew Kenny. Imagine all your favorite foods made only with plant based ingredients – it works. Trust. Flora cheese board? Delish. Kimchi dumpling? Yup. And coconut “ceviche,” FTW. // Wynwood. (305) 814-5365.

7/Mina’s Mediterraneo
Because that hummus, yo. Dips, on dips, on dips and no one’s complaining. Mina’s spicy feta, baba ganoush, and besara are some of the most dunkable dips in town.

8/Caviar Russe
Because you need to take your fancy factor up a few notches.

Because dining in a Peruvian temple makes anyone feel like a rockstar. Not only are the digs of this London import draw dropping, but so is the grub. Freshly caught ceviche, pinchos, and colorful sides on fleek. Oh, and don’t miss the chili margarita. Date night win. // Brickell. Book now on Resy.
