Miami is one of the hottest destinations for high-end dining in the country! In the past few months, there have been a plethora of new restaurants opening their doors. Here are our top 9 recommendations.
ZZ’s Club is a new restaurant and private membership club from Major Food Group located in the heart of the Miami Design District. With interiors designed by the renowned Ken Fulk and hospitality tailored to each of our Members, the two-level space should feel like a second home. The first floor houses a traditional sushi omakase counter presided over by Michelin-starred chefs Masa Ito and Kevin Kim, as well as a modern Japanese restaurant. On the second floor, the collection of amenities includes a cigar terrace, backgammon balcony, and an intimate bar and lounge.
COTE is the Michelin-starred and James Beard Award-nominated KOREAN STEAKHOUSE™ and vision of proprietor Simon Kim. The restaurant is synonymous with marrying the fun and fire of Korean barbeque with the hallmarks of a classic, regal American steakhouse.
Miami’s newest brewery, Cervecería La Tropical, has brought a piece of Cuba’s history to Miami’s Wynwood. The brewery got its start in Cuba in 1888 and is known for establishing the Cuban beer industry. The shiny new La Tropical features a state-of-the-art onsite brewing operation, accompanied by a taproom, restaurant, botanical garden, and a stage for live music — much like its predecessor.
Oasis Wynwood is Miami’s new cultural epicenter. Experience reprieve from the concrete jungle in the Oasis’s sprawling courtyard, which features six premier outdoor dining destinations and outdoor nightlife at the “Tower Bar.” Featuring live performances, including top music artists, and cultural events with a focus on art and neighborhood programming, plus retail pop ups, and a bevy of other events, all in an expansive outdoor setting.

As in all Mendin’s kitchens, the food at Casa Isola embraces a scratch-made approach utilizing best possible ingredients at the foundation, because memorable food is not made with shortcuts. Agnello’s menu influences are distinctive and inspired by childhood memories spent with his Nonna. His dishes encapsulate the small “la famiglia” nuisances that elevate Italian cuisine’s classic simplicity while Mendin complements Agnello’s refined approach, by juxtaposing different flavor profiles to create bold dish.
Como Como is a marisquería (seafood restaurant) and raw bar that showcases the flavors of Puerto Escondido, Los Cabos, Acapulco, and more. Naturally, plenty of seafood dishes can be found on the menu like the Pescado a la Talla made with snapper that is butterflied, grilled, and topped with two marinades: green on one side and red on the other, or the Tikin-Xic a Mayan preparation of whole branzino with orange, habanero chiles, and achiote, cooked in banana leaves, and unwrapped at the table. Raw bar items have a Mexican twist like oysters served with a pineapple-vinegar mignonette and hand-chopped Tartar de Pescado, made tableside.
Also founded by Major Food Group, Carbone is one of the most celebrated Italian restaurants of the last decade. The New York Times probably put it best: “It is a fancy red-sauce joint as directed by Quentin Tarantino, bringing back the punch-in-the-guts thrills of a genre that everybody else sees as uncultured and a little embarrassing, while exposing the sophistication that was always lurking there. The restaurant has a technical prowess that can make you giddy and an instinct for sheer entertainment that makes a lot of other restaurants seem like earnest, unimaginative drones.”
Abbalé Telavivian Kitchen is a family-run restaurant in South of Fifth, Miami Beach. Two Fathers (Abba) join forces to combine the melting pot of cultural influences of these two beach cities, creating a casual atmosphere of delicious cuisine. Abbalé offers an exceptional dining experience, incorporating Chef Samuel Gorenstein’s healthier style of cooking with the rich flavors of Israel, Turkey, Greece and Colombia.
Zitz Sum is a contemporary Asian-inspired neighborhood restaurant located in Coral Gables. It is considered a hybrid between dim sum and izayaka that specializes in dumplings & small plates, inspired by Japanese & Chinese street foods, giving them an accent with a Miami perspective. A family-owned eatery combines unpretentious service and top-notch quality food and drinks in a fun and relaxed setting. Our beverage program revolves around natural, biodynamic and organic wines, with an emphasis on easy-drinking wines that uplift the food and the experience, and highlights our love for sake and shochu.
