Restaurants in Miami

Miami restaurants have gained worldwide acclaim for offering unique New World cuisine, also known as “Nuevo Latino” or “Floribbean,” a play on the combination of Caribbean and American culinary styles. Restaurants in Miami tend to specialize in Cuban and South American dishes, but as an international destination Miami offers plenty of award-winning international and fusion restaurants that will satisfy cravings for Chinese, Japanese, French, Middle Eastern and Italian cuisine, too.

Miami is also known for the number of nightclubs that double as restaurants, especially in South Beach. Cibo Wine Bar, located in Coral Gables, serves up authentic, rustic Italian, and also doubles as a nightlife hotspot. The stone and glass interior, complete with rustic wood finishes, makes it a sport that feels both casual and contemporary. Award-winning The Forge, open since 1969, serves a farm-to-table menu in a sumptuously decorated space with walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique smoked mirrors. The menu boasts specialties based on Miami’s bounteous seafood, such as sea scallop ceviche, Maine lobster risotto and Florida stone crab claws, as well as fusion twists on seafood classics like miso-marinated Chilean sea bass and organic farm-raised salmon served with hazelnuts and smoked trout caviar.
