Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
Restaurateur Michael Schwartz is often credited with kickstarting local, seasonally focused dining in Miami with this flagship spot, open since 2007.
Cecconi’s Miami Beach
The courtyard of the chic Soho Beach House is the setting for this classic Italian favorite. At dinner, its lavish outdoor tables are the place to see and be seen.
Tucked away in a Mediterranean-style villa just a couple blocks from the beach, this Northern Italian restaurant has a secluded, exclusive feel.
A favorite for their Japanese-inspired brunch, this izakaya spot overlooking the Miami River is a must-visit.
Lauded by Ferran Adria and serving only sixteen guests a night, this omakase-style Japanese restaurant is one of the most sought-after reservations in the country.
Joe’s Stone Crab
No trip to Miami is complete without a visit to this South Beach institution, famous for its meaty crab claws.
Mandolin Aegean Bistro
Opened in 2009 by husband and wife team Anastasia Koutsioukis and Ahmet Erkaya, this Design District hotspot serves fresh, Greek-inspired food.
The 16-table spot serves up small and large plates with an Asian flair, but is really known for its way with all things pork.
The Bazaar By Jose Andres
Located in South Beach’s SLS Hotel, The Bazaar offers imaginative Latin cuisine from the James Beard Award-winning chef.
