When it comes to dining out, Greater Miami & Miami Beach pleases every palate.

From its bold Latin and Caribbean flavors to hot restaurants led by celebrity chefs and fabulous food festivals, there’s much to savor on a culinary journey through Greater Miami. Explore Miami, one table at a time, with MIAMI EATS. The diverse range of gastronomic experiences includes unique restaurants, food trucks, juice bars and more.

Begin your dining adventure in Miami Beach, where many top restaurants are tucked inside hotels, including StripSteak by Michael Mina at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 27 Restaurant & Bar at the Freehand Miami and The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel South Beach. With the area’s gentle ocean breezes and subtropical sunshine, outdoor dining is a joy, whether you’re oceanfront at DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach or watching boats sail by while sitting on the terrace at Smith & Wollensky in South Pointe Park.

Miami’s culinary chops extend far beyond high-end restaurants in glitzy hotels. Sample the destination’s authentic Latin and Caribbean cultures and cuisines, from Little Havana to Little Haiti and beyond. Enjoy a classic Cuban sandwich, Peruvian ceviche or Haitian griot pork stew. Neighborhoods including Wynwood and the Miami Design District have become incubators for some of the most exciting restaurants to hit the scene. Wynwood is home to open-air restaurants, lounges and breweries, including the Cerveceria La Tropical craft brewery (with delicious Cuban/Caribbean cuisine from celebrated local Chef Cindy Hutson) and No. 3 Social Rooftop Bar & Lounge. James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz put the Miami Design District on the map more than a decade ago. Current neighborhood hot spots include Swan & Bar Bevy, owned by music superstar Pharrell Williams and nightlife impresario/restaurateur David Grutman.

Miami knows how to throw a party! Celebrity chefs host lavish culinary bashes at the celebrated South Beach Wine & Food Festival® each year. The Miami Spice Restaurant Months program is a chance for locals and visitors to enjoy special prix-fixe menus at the best restaurants in town during August and September.
