Have you ever had a meal so memorable you countdown the days until you can have it again? It happened to us the day we tried Rosie’s wild mushroom polenta for the first time, and we’ve been looking forward to it ever since. The Overtown pop-up restaurant evolved to Rosie’s: The Backyard, an expansive courtyard where guests can enjoy brunch Friday through Sunday under the cover of large Banyan trees. Here, you'll find Chef Akino West's Southern-inspired dishes with hints of Italian flavors and techniques.
If supporting minority-owned businesses is your thing—and why shouldn't it be?—then we’ve got some options for you. Dining at Miami’s Black-owned restaurants isn’t going to just make you feel good about doing the right thing, because the spots on this list also happen to be some of Miami's best restaurants too. These places range from the tried-and-true Overtown soul food to Caribbean imports in the heart of South Beach, to one of the city’s best sit-down dining establishments. Doing something to uplift and support a local business while also eating well? Yeah, that sounds like a great plan.
