Eleventh Street Pizza
Where to Eat in Miami Right Now
The gist: Fooq owner David Foulquier slings Brooklyn-style and Sicilian pies in his restaurant’s old downtown space, boasting one of Miami’s best happy hours to boot.
The food: Though taking pizza advice from a guy running a sports website makes about as much sense as living by restaurant ratings from a tire company, Dave Portnoy absolutely got this one right. The pizza he called “the best stuff I’ve had” is a crispy-crusted, wood-fired Brooklyn-style pie that immediately became a contender for best in the city. The round pies are the heavy hitters, but the Sicilian-style is also Miami’s most spot-on, forgoing excessive cheese on top for crispy parmesan and grilled zucchini. If you’re just up for a slice, head here for Happy Hour, where you’d score half-off slices and cold beer Tuesday through Friday from 3 to 5 pm.
The cost: Salads and starters $11, pizzas $24 - $30, lasagna $28
The Absolute Best Pizza in Miami
The Brooklyn-style pies coming out of the old Fooq’s space have quickly become the most talked-about in the city, ever since a certain one-bite reviewer stopped by. But these crispy crusted, sauce-heavy numbers would still be outstanding without internet celebrity endorsements. Their square Sicilian-style slices are Miami’s most authentic, topped with onions and sauce like a gourmet focaccia. And the Brooklyn-style slices will make you instantly forget all the late-night slop you’ve ever downed across the bay. The best part? They’re available half-off as part of one of Miami’s best happy hours.
