Wynwood’s Le Chick is, first and foremost, a chicken restaurant—which is why we were slightly shocked and totally amazed upon tasting its cheeseburger, the Royale with Cheese. It’s. So. Freaking. Good. Two patties covered in cheddar cheese rest between a formidable house-baked bun. Simple concept. Perfect execution. There are lettuce, house pickles and a secret sauce invited to the party, too. Convince your friend to order the chicken. You stick with this puppy.
How does one eat like a local in Miami? Simple. It starts with the best dishes in Miami. This expertly curated list of entrées, sides, desserts and—yes—cocktails was carefully researched (we clocked in many, many hours at Cuban sandwich shops in Miami, Brickell restaurants and even a few local watering holes) to bring you the absolute tastiest eats across the city. Hungry yet? There’s plenty here to satiate your palates and satisfy your appetites. And to make sure we’ve covered every inch of the city, we’ve tapped a handful of our Time Out Tastemakers to contribute their favorite dishes of 2018. Dig in, friends.
