What happens when you send editors out into the city to scout the best restaurants and chefs? Their collective efforts yield Time Out Market, a dining-and-cultural destination in South Beach, featuring some of Miami’s brightest talents and long-time members of the EAT List—including Kush and Azucar. Offshoots of several local favorites are among the kitchens, such as Phuc Yea’s Pho Mo. While you’re there, try cocktails from Miami’s top bars and catch cool art plus information on events at the Market on our massive LED screen. Our mission is simple (but spelled out here): If we discover something in Miami that’s great, it goes in our media; if it’s unforgettable, it goes in the market.
The best restaurants in Miami are our local treasures. These are the places we turn to for a delicious meal and a great time, no matter the reason. Our top places to eat in the city are a true mix of flavors and feels, from white tablecloth fine-dining—like some of Miami’s best steakhouses—and trendy spots leading the way in culinary innovation to tried-and-tested cheap eats in Miami that never, ever disappoint. Don’t be surprised to run into some of Miami’s best bars on this list either. Where there’s a solid cocktail there’s likely to be an epic dish that follows. Now, who’s ready to dig in? Check back often as we update our roundup of best Miami restaurants with new discoveries and old favorites.
Just as we did before, Time Out’s local experts scour the city every day for great eats, great value and insider info. We value fun, flavor, freshness—and value at every price point. While we normally update the list of best restaurants quarterly, plus whenever there’s a truly spectacular new opening, we’ll be making changes monthly. We’ll be doing our best to keep you informed as new places open, others close and some of our favorites return. It could be a mega-hyped destination restaurant or a pop-up-turned-permanent spot: if it’s on the list we think it’s awesome and think you will too.
We hope you’re hungry, Miami.
