This contemporary hotel restaurant and lounge has gorgeous views and serves classic America food with a Latin flare.
Head to the Miami River for a menu with red wine short rib flatbread, wild boar sloppy joes, and the only thing American Social is more famous for than its female patrons, the AmSo mac & cheese.
You know a bar is serious about keeping the party going strong when they have cocktails on tap (because really, ain’t nobody got time to mix drinks when Friday is in full swing). Boasting massive plasma TVs, ample indoor and outdoor seating room, and a solid menu of high-end pub fare, it’s a Brickell destination for boozy brunch (chicken and waffles, anyone?) and sports games alike.
Brother Jimmys in Miami is like... a home away from home for every Murray Hill New Yorker. Get a taste of everything on their menu, down some well-priced brews, and get ready for a sore throat the next morning (and no, no one is impressed that you "still" know the words to "Take Me Home Tonight").
To ensure ultimate Irishness, Fadó's entire interior was constructed in Dublin, then shipped to and assembled in Miami, including various sections harking back to the island's drinking history: a stained glass'd Victorian Long Hall, a cottage area repping early "Public Houses", and a series of private drinking "snugs" to enjoy food, drink, and jovial convos.
Peruvian culinary maestro Gaston Acurio is mixing Andean and Asian flavors into a bold menu that highlights his home country at this chic restaurant inside the Mandarin Oriental. The menu includes made-to-order ceviche; tiraditos, or Peruvian-style sashimi; and causas, a traditional dish of potatoes whipped with seafood, avocado, tobiko, tomato, and egg. The drink selection is equally quintessential Peru, offering various takes on the pisco sour.
OTC does it right with fast, order-at-the-counter service and a laid-back Southern Florida atmosphere. There's a progressive menu with a fresh ingredient presence (duh). Also, they're pretty proud of their Indie-rock music selections.
When you’re done getting hit on by people’s aunts at Blue Martini, hit this contemporary Tuscan resto featuring a ton of the region’s reds, plus authentic dishes like Florentine steak, grilled calamari w/ fennel & arugula, and pappardelle in Tuscan beef ragu.
Bulla (pronounced boo-ya) is slang for chatter, and likely refers to both the bustling open kitchen at this large and light-filled space, and the conversation-inducing plates. The gastropub features tapas and a full bar, and brings the flavors of Spain to Coral Gables with courses like a calamari and king prawn paella, and a salad made with watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, and truffle honey.
Fontana is the Biltmore Hotel’s upscale Italian ristorante, known for its elegant décor, refined dinner menu, and tastefully over-the-top brunch. The indoor dining room is bookended by ornate vaulted ceilings and parquet wooden floors, while patio dining is situated in a lavish courtyard with a fountain surrounded by columned arcades. The European charm is reflected in Fontana’s food program; Chef Beppe Galazzi uses local and farm-fresh ingredients when stocking the breakfast buffet of eggs, meats, fruits, pastries, and yogurt, and the à la carte dinner of homemade pastas, meats, and antipasti.
Rumor has it that the guys behind The Local used to go to DC on the weekends to drink affordable craft beer and revel in laid-back nightlife, both of which Miami sorely lacked back in the day. No more, thanks to their Coral Gables gastropub that serves a rotating selection of 18 craft beers, small-batch wine, and innovative comfort food like fried spare ribs, hen & dumplings, and fried chicken with bacon and cornbread dressing. The Local's burger, made with a short rib and brisket-blended patty and topped with two slices of American cheese, pickles, and Mississippi Comeback sauce, is one of the best in the 305.
ROK specializes in gourmet burgers like the King James (Kurobuta pork belly, red onion marmalade, brie, truffle aioli), craft brews and cocktails. Also, flatscreens to distract you from your imminent heart-attack.
The second Samba location to hit Miami, SS's slinging Japanese-Brazilian-Peruvian fusion so you can feel all sorts of multi-cultural whilst sipping insane cocktails from a British master mixologist.
Bacon is one of the best foods ever - but the rest of the pig isn't so bad either. Especially at Swine, where chefs serve pork with everything from maple butter and grilled apples to beans and barbecue sauce. Swine Souther Table is one of our top favorite places to get BBQ in Miami.
The brainchild of Steven Haas (who tapped former Emeril chef Tom Azar), sprawling City Hall hopes to draw in locals and patrons of the stone's-throw Adrienne Arsht Center and AAA with its 1930s NY-iron chandeliers and burgundy leather walls, a mural with biplanes and scale-holding women, and a huge stained-glass piece with the Chrysler Building and Radio City, also the BET followup to Rap City on which a mentally challenged Cuba Gooding, Jr. replaced J-Nicks, and was actually much better.
Downtown Bistro is a wonderful little gem in the heart of Downtown Miami that serves French food fir breakfast/luch, with a happy hour Wednesday-Friday.
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.
Verde, at the Perez Art Museum, serves up stuff like roasted New York Strip with chimichurri butter and the garlic-thyme Tsuyu mushrooms on the side, sugary doughnut holes made with Cuban coffee gel, and pizza called "squash blossom".
From a German chef inspired to open his first much-loved spot in London after living in Tokyo for six years, our Zuma's styled after Japanese Izakaya spots and sits on the Miami River, with a private dock, water views, and an interior that combines rocks and natural accents.
This brick-and-mortar annex of food truck monolith BC Taco touts its signature caveman-themed taco menu, shelling out favorites like the Hunter, the T-Rex, the Missing Link, and the Cave-Dweller, which -- though unconfirmed by archaeologists -- are speculated to be visible in prehistoric cave paintings around the world. The BC Café also serves breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, and breakfast sweet potatoes to fuel fellow hunter-gatherers for the long, arduous day ahead. And after a night out around the bonfire, BC Taco is the cave-orhood saving grace for its Hangover Burger, with beef, barbecue pork, mustard, coleslaw, and a sunny-side-up egg.
American comfort food comes in all shapes and sizes at Fort Lauderdale’s Beauty and the Feast. The menu features small plates, large plates, “Feast Plates,” and “Accessories,” -- assuring diners that all types of appetites will be sated -- and highlights include skirt steak with rainbow chard, Florida cab bisque with orange-infused sherry cream, double-cut pork chop, and cedar plank wild salmon. Complement your main dishes with cream of corn or roasted sun chokes, and wash them down with zesty cocktails like the Rock, Flirt, Feast, or Scheme.
Located in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL, you'll know you've arrived at Council Oaks when you spot the giant window filled with prime cuts. Select your meat of choice from "The Butcher Shop" while you sip from an extensive collection of Napa Valley and Old World wines. Council Oaks' Sunday brunch, complete with a full raw bar, carving stations, and made to order sushi, is not to missed.
This gastropub serves up eats like oven-baked shrimp mac & cheese and chopped Thai-chicken noodle salad out of their Ft Lauderdale digs. True to their name, they also offer over 42 types of craft brew.
In the spirit of living just once, YOLO is not such a bad place to spend your time. Socialite's playground and foodie haven alike, the spot has equally popular fine-dining and cocktail programs, for those who want to sit and enjoy upscale American cuisine, and those who would rather make small talk over Mai Tais. Folks can take a seat in the leather-clad dining room to feast on things like bourbon-glazed pork chop, cedar-roasted salmon, and the Yolo burger, which comes dripping with gruyere and bacon jam. And for the after-dinner crowd, the lounge is armed with two full bars and a patio garden, all of which offer plenty of seating and standing room -- more than enough space for locals to shmooz over a couple of the bar's top-shelf house cocktails.
With outposts in Cali and London, Cecconi's is known for simple, authentic, Venetian food from Chef Sergio Sigala (see? Authentic!) that's served in a sophisticated dining room and beautiful garden area.
Set in a neo-colonial dining room and poolside garden that feel kinda like a West Palm mansion, Essensia blends Mediterranean and "Floribbean" cuisine via organic produce, hormone-free meats, and sustainable fish, all crafted to order.
The Matador Room takes on Latin and Caribbean food, but it puts a nice twist on classics with stuff like gulf white shrimp in “agua Diablo” (devil’s water).
Michael Mina's Stripsteak inside the Fontainebleau packs a punch with daily caught seafood and top-of-the-line beef from an in-house butcher. The two-story venue features indoor and outdoor seating, and the open kitchen with a wood-burning oven adds a bit of culinary entertainment to your meal.
When you meet a bar with 40 different gins, a gin and tonic is not just a gin and tonic. That's what you're going to find at this restaurant and bar in the Metropolitan by COMO hotel. With its art deco decor and seafood menu, plus creations from the master chocolatiers, you're sure to find something you'll like, but let us not forget: 40 different gins.
They've got an extensive raw bar as well as large entrees like lamb chops, forbidden rice with exotic mushrooms and hangar steak frites with salsa verde to share or order all to yourself.
With eats like veal meatballs and foie gras mousse, The District Miamis serves up innovative Pan-American cuisine in Buena Vista.
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.
Inside's “Metropolis” décor comes complete with a mirror room, but its outside showing who's boss with a 100-seater garden courtyard equipped with an outdoor island bar, outdoor pool tables, swings and a bed (for lounging, the activity one does most commonly in an outdoor bed). They make their hours happy every damn day from 11am-9pm, meaning $4 wells, $3 beers and $6 mojitos/dirty martinis. Hunger pains diminish with $4 bacon wrapped asparagus and $6 cheeseburger sliders.
Proving that sprucing up anything is possible, except of course spruce trees, since they're already mad sprucey: Cibo Wine Bar, an Italian-plating vino haven open for dinner on Tuesday, which performed a true miracle by classing up the Mile's former Sports Exchange with Old World-ness in the form of a giant stone oven/pizza bar, and a slew of just-mod-enough butcher block tables lining dimly lit, exposed brick insets adorned with mirrors.
The Local House boasts rustic communal tables and comfy chairs that encourage you to relax, eat, and maybe even take a nap.
This casual, yet refined, Italian restaurant and tavern serves up some of the best dishes in Miami.
This down-home American spot is serving up awesome craft 'tails and twists on classic eats like meatballs and gravy, fried chicken, cured pork belly, and fish-n-chips.
660's is known for killer cocktails, including the Margarita de Sandia (Patron Platino, Cointreau, watermelon, lime, agave nectar) and the Sixth & Washington, a summery take on the martini with vodka, dry vermouth, and lemon juice.
Handmade pasta with truffles and cream, bistecca and branzino - the menu at Bianca is reminiscent of many an Italian restaurant. It's selections from Umi Sushi & Sake Bar, though, show that Bianca is not a one-trick pony (even if that one trick is upscale Italian food that's delicious in it's own right).
Stepping into The Restaurant at The Raleigh is something like entering Narnia, sans wardrobe. The restaurant sits on its own terrace, with white-light-wrapped tree branches hanging over wicker chairs and tables like an untamed ceiling. In spite of the fact that it sits in the center of a Miami Beach hotel, this place feels like a genuine departure from the city motion waiting just outside. The menu focuses on modern American cuisine that is just as filling as it is tasty -- things like braised short rib with brussels sprouts, baked Maine lobster, and foie gras sliders. The place is armed with a raw bar and a martini bar, where patrons can gulp fresh oysters and Grey Goose, alike.
From a French-trained foodsmith with a James Beard award and a two-Michelin-star rating who's been helming the Setai's pan-Asian main restaurant for over two years, The Grill's a return to grub inspired by his beloved Southern Europe, and feels like a back room nobody knows about; it's got high latticed ceilings up front and a shadowy rear area, all done in earthy wood, stone, and leather, with a massive mother of pearl communal table, and a food bar lined with ham hocks -- a dream for you, a nightmare for Kermit.
