38 Essential Restaurants in Miami, Summer 2022

The most frequently asked question Eater Miami receives is, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” The goal of the Eater 38 is to answer that question with a list of Miami’s top restaurants, spanning the city’s best cuisines and neighborhoods. The restaurants on this list cover the entire city; span myriad cuisines, histories, and locations; and, collectively, satisfy any and all restaurant needs.

Every couple of months the list is updated to add pertinent restaurants that were perhaps omitted or have newly become eligible (which means they’ve been open for more than six months, but usually closer to a year), or have made meaningful recent changes. The restaurants that have been added in July are Zitz Sum, Old Greg’s, Motek Cafe, and Over Under, while Naoe, Hutong, the River Oyster Bar, and Zuma have departed.
