I am a true foodie and I’m currently on a “SEE IT” diet so visiting one of my favorite cities was perfect time. I took a quick trip to Art Basel-Miami and while the art was amazing, so was the grub!
I made sure to book the best restaurants from hidden gems to my old faithfuls. I left Miami with an extra 10 lbs but saticifed in so many ways. Take a look at my top five spots to eat and drink in Miami and get ready to book a flight!
The Local House: Amazing reviews here, check me out @yelp. Brunch was amazing and the service was perfect! We started out with yummy cocktails and Oysters. For Brunch we had the Lobster Rolls and Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes. They pair so good together … its a brunch vibe!
Puerto Sagua - OPEN LATE and Absolutely amazing! When planning my trip to Miami, I knew I wanted some good food and very authentic. This was true authentic Cuban food like made with love!
We sat at the bar because the line was out the door. Don't worry because the line moves fast. After ready numerous reviews this Is clearly a popular spot on Miami Beach and now I know why!
Very casual atmosphere with people from all over the world. The menu has something good for everyone. I ordered the peppered steak with a side of rice and beans, this is by far the best peppered steak Ive ever had. The steak was seasoned to perfection and went perfect with the rice and beans.
Nikki Beach: Looking for that fabulous Miami vibe? Nikki Beach should be on your list. It’s all you can eat and for $60 bucks ( not including drinks) but worth every penny! The buffet is packed with seafood and a great mix of every type food you can think of.
The outdoor beach seating is really what creates the vibe. Its always crowed and feels like a party but can be very intimate. We hung out so hard, until we shut the place down…. it was that much fun. Live music and a DJ with a combination of people from all over the world. They have beautiful cabanas and table service if you really looking to go all they way out. The service is amazing and you can walk right out to the beach and come back to eat more.
Whenever in Miami put Nikki Beach on your list!
Drunken Dragon : Have you tried Korean BBQ? Have you had a chance to actually cook it yourself? If not, Its a super cool experience.
Drunken Dragon is also an amazing cocktail bar with a live DJ. During Art Basel the vibe was such an experience. 90’s R & B playing and the aroma of meat on the grill, it’s a WIN! The restaurant really makes me feel like Im in a NYC speakeasy. I will be back!
