Newly added!

You could hear hearts breaking when Nando and Val Chang announced the closing of their wildly popular Itamae. The good news: It’s now an intimate jewel box of a space next to their other restaurant, Maty’s. This isn’t just Nikkei cuisine by some of the country’s most exciting up-and-coming chefs, it’s an omakase experience that takes the concept to the next level.

CATCH Miami Beach South of Fifth

map

Newly added!

Fresh air and a bird’s-eye view of the surroundings are hallmarks of Catch restaurants around the globe, whether it’s in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan or West Hollywood in L.A. The Miami Beach outpost has it all: An opulent Art Déco vibe both inside and out, lots of cocktails and bubbly, truffle sashimi, Cantonese lobster, and hot rock Wagyu prepared tableside.

Gold Standard Sushi Wynwood

map

Newly added!

Like a sushi speakeasy hidden behind a secret door inside Whitman’s, this roving omakase experience brings everything you’ve come to expect from high-end tasting menus: A welcome round of sparkling wine or Japanese whisky, a small counter with a handful of seats, and 16 courses of elevated nigiri, sashimi, and more, each bite more impressive than the last.

Tacombi – Brickell Brickell

map

Newly added!

Once a Volkswagen bus on the beaches of Yucatán, then a beach-meets-retro hot spot in New York, Tacombi clearly feels right at home in Miami. This fourth location offers the same stellar taco menu (al pastor, carnitas, carne asada, and occasionally birria), plus pitchers of margaritas and housemade aguas frescas. The lush outdoor courtyard, two bars, and open kitchen are part of the fun.

More nights should include jerk fried chicken sandwiches, coconut peas and rice, griot and pikliz, and vinyl vibes. Cocktails take a detour through the Caribbean; things like the Hotstepper combine passionfruit with housemade hot sauce.

KYU Miami Wynwood Art District

map

Warm tones and earthy elements play a balancing act with the fiery spirit of this (reopened!) mainstay. Don’t worry: Kyu’s iconic roasted cauliflower, Korean fried chicken, crispy rice, and sesame-crusted short ribs are all here. But don’t overlook lighter newcomers like crunchy kale — texture is everything.

Aoko Edgewater

map

Sushi made with pristine fish and subtle, creative flourishes doesn’t require flashing lights, bottle service, or even a sign on the door, and this Edgewater spot proves it. From the hand rolls (like aji with chimichurri) to the nigri and rolls, everything is graceful. If you can’t decide what to get, the omakase’s the way to go.

MUCHAAACHOS Miami Beach

map

There’s a real love of Argentinian fútbol and food at this Normandy Isles spot (think of the extra a’s as what a crowd roars any time Argentina scores). Go for the grilled cowboy steak for two, chorizo links, or the skirt steak with tomato, mozzarella, and hand-cut fries. Stay for the Argentinian wines, vermouth, or a Fernet and coke.

Bodega Mezcaleria Coral Gables Coral Gables

Distressed leather loungers, reclaimed wood, dim lights — it’s exactly where you want to be sipping a mezcal old fashioned whilst snacking on crispy pork belly topped with caviar. The intimate 26-seater is a vibe, a hideaway for those in the know.

Abbalé Telavivian Kitchen – Aventura Aventura

map

There’s so much more room at this second outpost of the popular Telavivian restaurant. That means better chances for chef Sam Gorenstein’s warm pita and salatim, crunchy cauliflower with tamarind glaze, and flat-iron steak shashlik. Brunch is exceptional, as are cocktails; sip an arak sour at the bar any time.

Motek Brickell Brickell

map

Like the other Motek locations, this is the perfect place for all-day brunch, especially when shakshuka and various mezze are involved. The Arayes burger (beef kofta kebabs stuffed into a soft pita with tahini and harissa) tastes even better in larger indoor and outdoor digs with a cocktail by its side.

Tacombi – Wynwood Wynwood

map

Once a Volkswagen bus on the beaches of Yucatán, then a beach-meets-retro hot spot in New York, Tacombi feels just right for Miami. This third location brings the stellar taco menu (al pastor, carnitas, carne asada, and occasionally birria), plus pitchers of margaritas, and housemade aguas frescas to a bustling, vibrant corner of Wynwood.
