Doya is pretty and modern and beautiful inside and out. But don’t think that glitz makes it any less excellent when the Aegean food starts to arrive because here, it’s all about good ingredients cooked well. On our visit, the eggplant (sliced lengthwise and roasted until almost candied, served room temperature with labneh yogurt and pomegranate) exemplified this. Chef Erhan Kostepen is the former executive chef of the always-good Mandolin Aegean, which explains the high level of dishes rushing out of this kitchen.
Fifteen years ago, you’d be lucky to find a half-decent food truck outside a gallery opening in an abandoned warehouse in Wynwood. These days, the cranes (and the new condo buildings they help erect) seem to be rising up from every block of Miami’s colorful arts district. Likewise, local restaurants and heavy-hitting hospitality groups from around the world have flocked to the neighborhood, adding to a truly vibrant scene. Wynwood is also home to plenty of late-night munchies for fueling the neighborhood’s now-famed party crowds. So how does one begin to sort out the exceptional from the not-so-great dining destinations in this beautifully chaotic swath of Miami? Plan your culinary tour with our guide to the best restaurants in Wynwood, featuring Michelin-recognized spots, budget-friendly options and everything in between.
