1/Arson
Because when Deme Lomas hits the kitchen, you know it’s going to be good. At his newest eatery, the Spanish star of Miami’s culinary scene, the Josper grill takes the lead– everything from the duck prepared three ways to the squid-ink tagliatelle is cooked perfectly over the flames.// Downtown Miami. Book now on Resy.

2/La Petite Maison
Because this fancy French import is tres chic in every sense. Grab a seat on a plush banquette, take in the mismatched art, and channel your inner-Parisian while dinning on foie gras, roasted chicken, and of course, escargot.// Brickell. (305) 403-9133.

3/Estefan Kitchen
Because the rhythm is going to get ya (in a good way) at the latest eatery from the king and queen of Miami, Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Pro tip: don’t miss the lechon– it’s award-winning for a reason.// Design District. (786) 843-3880.

4/Artisan Beach House
Because Paula DaSilva’s triumphant return to Miami is worthy of celebration. Creative offerings like duck-filled paella and roasted monkfish are served with a side of the best water views in town.// Bal Harbour. (305) 455-5460.

5/Cafe Roval
Because this secret romantic hideaway makes for the perfect date night spot. Grab a seat in the garden, and feast on a melt-in-your-mouth filet mignon topped with foie butter. Finish with nutella-filled crepes and  impress your date in no time.// MiMo. (786) 953-7850.

6/Jack’s Home Cooking
Because nostalgic Italian eats are a nice change of pace in uber hip Wynwood. Fresh made pasta, tangy chicken Parm, and the “gravy” and meatballs (served only on Sundays) will have the table saying mamma mia.// Wynwood.

7/Charcoal
Because choose your meat, and choose your adventure. With 18 different sauces, plenty of veggies, and everything from Florida-raised lamb to octopus on the menu, the combinations are just about endless. Challenge accepted. // Wynwood. Book now on Resy.

8/OTL
Because mega-club mogul David Grutman proves he knows a thing or two about restaurants, too. The superseed butter-topped brioche toast and matcha latte are as tasty as they are Insta-worthy.// Design District. No reservations. 

9/Coya
Because ceviche is a must in Miami, and Coya dishes out some of the freshest. Wash it back with a smokey Mezcalita, and enjoy a meal fit for an Incan king.// Brickell. Book now on Resy.

10/Perricone’s
Because after 20 years in the biz, it’s still hard to top Perricone’s pasta game. On Thursdays you can snag most of them for just $10. Don’t worry – no judgment if multiple plates are ordered.// Brickell. Book now on Resy.
