5. Mina's Mediterraneo 749 NE 79th St, Miami, FL 33138

Housed in a renovated Haitian church, Mina’s Mediterraneo serves an approachable menu that spans Southern Europe and the Middle East with dishes like spanakopita, lamb tagine, spaghetti bolognese, and stuffed cabbage. A generous pizza selection provides full coverage of the Mediterranean itself: the Moroccan pizza comes with lamb sausage, red peppers, and harissa, while the Spanish option is topped with manchego cheese and Iberian ham. Mina's features a light-strung garden in the back, where live music is often playing. The craft cocktail program offers classics as well as those representative of the regional cuisine, with drinks like the mint tea-and-rye Marakesh Cocktail and the Alexandrian Dusk (date-infused vodka, cane juice, and sandalwood syrup). For dessert: baklava.

6. Urban Oxy 1260 Washington Ave, Miami, FL 33139

Hit up Urban Oxy’s new South Beach location where you can write “I will not drink evil chain coffee” 100 times on their chalkboard walls... or just order a cup from Miami’s own Panther, much on pastries from Hialeah’s Sweetness Bakery, and eat fresh pizza by the slice.
