The Hit ListMiami

Where to Eat in August: Chica, Lion & The Rambler, 2 Korean Girls, and More


Is it August already? Somehow we’re into the second half of 2022, which makes it the perfect time to plan out which restaurants we still need to hit up this year. It’s also a big month for South Florida diners, as Miami’s favorite restaurants make their best moves to lure in locals with summer specials, pop-ups, and more.

On a monthly basis, Resy’s Hit List is here to highlight 10 spots that are worth having on your radar. Right now, we’ve got our eye on big openings like Lion & The Rambler in the former Eating House space and Amal’s modern Lebanese cuisine in the Grove; new pop-ups like Le Jardinier’s Summer Rosé Garden and 2 Korean Girls long-waited beachside dine-in location; and trending spots like Little Hen for an Insta-worthy brunch.

All the spots you’ll want to make reservations this month, in your August Hit List. Read on.
