1. Oolite Restaurant & Bar 1661 Pennsylvania Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

Oolite is all about the healthy eating, but that doesn’t mean alcohol is off limits. The Guajllo Sunset Bloody keeps it in check with fresh red tomato peppers, horseradish, and a yellow tomato juice floater.

2. Edge, Steak & Bar 1435 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131 (Brickell)

There are several things that separate this sophisticate venue from the high-brow steakhouses of Miami: for one, executive chef Aaron Brooks was named the Miami "Lambassador" by the Australian lamb council, and his lamb chops, served with chickpeas, fire-roasted peppers, red chimichurri, and coriander cream, are an award-winning signature. The rest of the meat-centric menu features Creekstone Farms steaks that are cooked over a mesquite-chipped grill, giving them a smoky, outdoorsy flavor that'll make you forget you’re sitting in the Four Seasons. And though the prices won't make a meal at Edge a casual spend, specialty seafood that's flown in every day makes the trip worth it.

3. The Federal Food Drink & Provisions 5132 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33137

The Phuc Yea! crew's homey spot on Biscayne is serving comfort food that you can wash down with 15 wines, beers on tap, and cocktails... just not all at once. Their light, fluffy biscuits have been ranked as some of the best in the country and are just a little sweet with a honey apple cider glaze. This modern American tavern serves up lunch, dinner and boozy brunch, and their Bloody Mary, made with Southwestern-style chipotle, cilantro, horseradish and agave wine, is not one to miss.

5. Toro Toro 100 Chopin Plz, Miami, FL 33131 (Downtown)

This Pan-Latin restaurant sits in the lobby of a hotel, but its swank dark wood embellishments and leather booths make it feel like it's its own Miami establishment. The menu includes unexpected items like lamb skewers with yogurt sauce, though classic meat dishes like lamb chops and rib-eye steak are also popular.

6. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar 1600 Lenox Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

Before Yardbird opened in 2011, Miami wasn't known for its Southern comfort cuisine, which somehow seemed odd for a city that's geographically part of the American south. All that changed when Top Chef finalist Jeff McInnis, along with restaurant vets Chris Romero and John Kunkel, opened Yardbird in Miami Beach and instantly made a name with their fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, and watermelon salad. The menu is chock full of quintessential down-home foods, and the well-stocked bar doles out house cocktails like blackberry bourbon lemonade and Bloody Marys with bacon-infused bourbon.

7. Lou's Beer Garden 7337 Harding Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33141 (Miami Beach)

Who doesn't love a poolside beer/wine bar with mosaic blue tile walls, a flatscreen for games, and seating around said pool? Chow down artisan pizzas, or an 8oz Angus burger with bacon and feta, because happy hour goes til 8pm.

8. Broken Shaker 2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami, FL 33140 (Miami Beach)

In the backyard of the Freehand on South Beach, tucked off to the side, there’s a small alcove overflowing with cocktail-consuming hopefuls, waiting patiently to procure a poolside sipper. The Broken Shaker’s locale on the Freehand’s property is beneficial, not just because the grounds serve as a lounge for the tiny bar front’s patrons, but also because the bar menu taps into the property’s garden for ingredients, resulting in creative, substantive cocktails that also happen to be best when drunk by the pool, in the pool, on a hammock, or anywhere else in the hostel’s art deco backyard. Broken Shaker has since spread its craft cocktail success cross country, with locations in both Chicago and Los Angeles.

9. Lure Fishbar 1601 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)
