Many times Miami feels like one day you’re in, and the next day you are out. That can be true for restaurants as well. And Hungries know that when you find a good one, you have to hold on tight! So we have put together a list of dining options—recently opened—that we expect will stick around for the long haul.
Bakehouse Brasserie | Miami Beach
Travel to Paris on a one-way ticket when you visit this café in the South of Fifth neighborhood. We’re talking fresh baked breads, homemade croissants, pastelitos (they speak our language), and fruit tarts for days. Get to Bakehouse as early as 7am or check out their daily brunch starting at 10am, offering signature items like the Stuffed Croissant French Toast. They are open New Year’s Day!
Bird & Bone | The Confidante Miami Beach Miamians think they know the South, but that’s before Chef Richard Hales cooked up a southern-inspired restaurant concept named Bird & Bone. Sourcing from independent small farms and organic butchers, Hales is taking you to his farmhouse. We want to go, too! Can you say Nashville hot chicken?
Pork Shank with Blackberry BBQ is the Bone of the day today. Let’s eat! Bring a friend A photo posted by Bird & Bone (@birdandbonemia) on
K Ramen. Burger. Beer. | South Beach
We just saved you another plane ticket. Ramen. Burger. Beer. And that’s all you need to know. That and, of course, the craved ramen burger with a ½ pound of beef, a spicy creamy sauce, caramelized onion, heirloom tomato and American cheese on local artisan bread. K, bye.
Luke’s | Brickell City Centre We love being first! Luke’s lobster made Miami their first home in South Florida. And it’s no shack at all; they are located in the newly opened Brickell City Centre. The seafood is fresh, straight from the source, and prepared with pure and simple ingredients. Try their lobster roll right now. Do it!

OLLA | Miami Beach
More than just a Taco-Tuesday share, OLLA (pronounced oi-ya) is Mexican cuisine at its best. Of course, what else do you expect from Chef Scott Linquist of COYO Taco. We loved the Ahumado jar (Tarro), Rajas (under Pots on the menu), and Coloradito Mole prepared with duck breast and carnitas. Everything is served “a la olla” with fresh ingredients like corn “truffles”, shaved cabbage, homemade tortillas, cotija and other traditional garnishes.
All of our Masa dishes are made from our #local friend @slicedicecode of @masatortillas & @taquizamiami – in this Tamal we top it with tinga de pollo 👅 available all day long! – – – – #MiamiLunch #MiamiEats #MiamiFoodie #Masa #Tamale #NomNation #FollowTheCorn #SeriousEats #YouGottaEatThis #FoodPic #FoodPhoto #Delicious #Instamood #MiamiFood #Mexican #Lunch #FoodPorn #FuckThatsDelicious #LincolnRoadMall
Ono Poke Shop | Wynwood Fresh, fresh, fresh yo, that’s fresh! That’s what everyone is saying about Ono Poke Shop. Everything is made in small batches to keep a high level of fresh. And if they sell out of fish, well, you will just have to come back the next day. Then build your own bowl with tuna, king salmon, or crab at its base. Get funky with it!
Tomorrow, we’ll be back at it 🌴🐟 Follow the Wynwood fish & discover Miami’s freshest poke experience | #OnoPokeShop #WynwoodLife A photo posted by ‘ONO POKÉ SHOP (@onopokeshop) on
Paulie Gee’s | Shorecrest
Brooklyn’s in the house! At least that’s what it feels like in Miami when you furnish this spot with a NY industrial look. And then you sell pizza. We’re going to love it here. We are especially sold on some of the toppings like Parmigiano reggiano, mild Gouda, fresh Mozzarella, bodega Swiss, and Gorgonzola.
Rust | Wynwood Block They are literally the new kids on the block. With an owner from Uruguay, expect a new take on the fusion dines we’ve been frequenting lately. And that’s a great thing! Expand your palate and order the Chivito Uruguayo—beef tenderloin, ham, mozzarella, bacon… and we can stop there, because bacon.

Tocaya Organica | Miami Beach
Cheers to sourcing your food from sustainable environments. Hungries care, too. And in this case, we don’t have to break the bank to eat organic. It’s great Mexican food from tacos, bowls, burritos and more, all handmade daily. Find flavors from the early Mexican kitchen such as cacao, jicama, tamarind and cilantro.
And since we know you are so excited to kick-off 2017, here’s one coming in January. OTL | Design District This will be your new hangout. OTL will offer coffee, breakfast goods, drinks, sandwiches and pastries. Their upstairs space will be perfect for creatives to come in and spread the love on all things cool. Sit indoor or outdoor and enjoy the high-speed Internet. See you in 2017!
Something real good is brewing in the heart of Miami Design District. Coming soon! #OTLmia #EveryoneWelcome #Miami #DesignDistrict A photo posted by OTL (@otlmia) on
