Newly added!

It’s safe to say that dining at this Peruvian and Japanese spot is an experience. There is, after all, a 33,000-pound volcanic boulder in the room. Nikkei sashimi, shrimp and pork gyoza, and yucca dumplings are just a few heavy hitters (tasting menus are the way to go). The Tokyo-meets-Miami vibe is urban yet tropical, much like some of the zesty, herbal, and peppery cocktails.

Jass Kitchen Buena Vista

map

Newly added!

In a town bursting at the seams with big and boisterous scenes, sometimes you just want to settle in for a candlelight dinner with a jazzy background. Stuffed grape leaves, muhammara, lamb kebabs and fragrant jasmine rice, and clay-baked branzino are just a few hits.

Lulu in the Grove Coconut Grove

map

Newly added!

This Coconut Grove favorite always had international flair, but its latest incarnation leans heavily on Spain, with French, Mediterranean, and Miami touches throughout. You’ll see it in every dish, from the marinated olives and grapes or beetroot rolls to the pastas and whole branzino. The cocktails bring it all together.

Newly added!

Like the other Motek locations, this South of Fifth outpost 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.

Issabella’s Miami Beach

map

Newly added!

If cruising around the Mediterranean isn’t in the cards, a night at this Lincoln Road spot makes a good stand-in. Filled with Aegean blues, marble, and warm wood accents, it’s just right for sharing, well, everything: dips and laffa bread, spicy Calabrian cream penne, steamed mussels, and chicken skewers. Spritzes all around for everyone!

Luca Osteria Coral Gables

map

If Miami-born chef Giorgio Rapicavoli has some fun at Eating House, at this Coral Gables spot, it’s all about paying homage to his Argentinian and Italian roots in delightful and often eye-opening ways. From the patate fritte, his famous fluffy fried potato balls with black truffle, fonduta, and egg, to a can’t-miss cacio e pepe, nothing is as simple as it seems.

Ossobuco Wynwood

map

You’re going to want to bookmark this wood-fired Wynwood spot. Think a dramatic room is filled with stone, dark hues, and amber woods. A gorgeous bar with views of flames jumping from the grills. And almost everything is kissed by fire, from smoked beet carpaccio to the massive Wagyu tomahawk. The leafy patio is always buzzing.

Giselle Downtown Miami

There’s pink neon, flaming food, cocktails served in glass stilettos, and caviar bumps with your choice of tequila or vodka. Let’s just say: This rooftop restaurant is all about the party, and the party never stops.

The sleek black-and-white design sets a good backdrop for chef Giorgio Rapicavoli’s fun and artistic plays on comfort food. We’re talking Brussels sprouts Caesar salads, crispy rock shrimp with squiggles of orange hot sauce, bucatini carbonara centered by a perfect egg yolk, and the “dirt cup” dessert that looks like … exactly that. Cocktails aren’t just pretty to look at; they taste good, too.

Leku Fish + Garden Allapattah

map

We love a museum restaurant that doesn’t feel like one. Outside, it’s Allapattah industrial. Inside, colors pop in the airy dining room and lush plants surround the patio. This is Spain via Miami in all the best ways, from gambas al ajillo with Key West pink shrimp to the creamy, oozing Basque cheesecake.

Cipriani Downtown Miami Brickell

map

Where other Ciprianis around the country feel like a study, here you’ve hopped on to the company yacht. Smooth, glossy lines, sail-whites and sea blues, the room is a study in waterside sophistication (with great views, too). White jacketed servers, tableside presentations, and the famed carpaccio and Bellinis are all on board.

Undisclosed Silver Bluff Estates

map

Hidden inside an art gallery, dinners here are mini events, with as much flair and creativity as the exhibits out front. It’s all about multi-course menus themed around Wagyu, seafood, and Japanese specialties, interesting wines, and a communal vibe. You might even leave with a piece of art or professionally taken photograph of yourself, who knows.

Yann Couvreur Café Wynwood

If there was ever a place to have dessert first, it’s French pastry chef Yann Couvreur’s first U.S. café (Bailey’s and chocolate éclairs, anyone?). Savory treats are just as eye-popping — look no further than the tuna melt: the creamiest tuna salad sandwiched between buttery toasted brioche with cheddar, and squiggles of herb aioli on top. It might be the only tuna melt you’ll ever want to photograph first.

Miss Crispy Rice Wynwood

map

Who said spicy tuna has a lock on crispy rice? Truffle avocado, scallop with uni, and A5 Wagyu are just a few things you’ll find in a crispy rice flight here. Start with some hand rolls, like one stuffed with fatty pork belly and tuna, and keep the sake coming.

The Deck at Island Gardens Watson Island

map

The party never really stops at this bayfront restaurant. It’s posh but not stuffy (definitely dress the part), shellfish towers are a constant, and the bubbly always flows. Peek around that mega yacht, and you’ll see a pretty stunning Miami skyline, too.

Calista Taverna – Coral Gables Coral Gables

map

The little storefront feels more like Santorini than a popular pedestrian street in Coral Gables, and it’s not just the blue-and-white façade and décor. It’s the locals buzzing over creamy dips and flatbread, grilled halloumi, real-deal moussaka, and grilled or fried whole fish (your choice from the daily offerings).

Tala Beach South Beach

map

Because it gives Mediterranean-meets-Tulum vibes, from the pillow-filled daybeds to the palms, natural woods, and beachy colors everywhere. Dining here during the day and night are decidedly different, but if all you’re after is some mezze, crudo, oysters, and cocktails, you’ll be fine either way.

Front Porch Cafe Miami Beach

map

So close to the beach, this South Beach breakfast stalwart is exactly what you want when the craving for avocado toast, granola pancakes, eggs Bennie, or corned beef hash sets in. A watermelon Bellini never hurts, either.

Dōma Restaurant Wynwood

Habitat South Beach

Rich wood tones, muted blues, woven light shades, and an abundance of indoor greenery — plus a tree-shaded patio — provide a stylish backdrop for chef Ross Jansen’s sustainably sourced modern Mexican fare (think cauliflower elote, chicken chorizo tacos) at this South Beach haven.

Sushi | Bar Miami Beach Miami Beach

map

No matter what city this omakase restaurant lands in, it’s one of the most unique experiences, bar none. More intimately-lit speakeasy than restaurant, with only a few seats along the L-shaped counter, you’ll sample nigiri and sushi with various salts, top-notch ingredients like aged bluefin akami, Hokkaido scallop, truffles, and so much more. It’s a vibe, it’s an experience.
