May 2019: Order up! If there’s one constant with Miami’s culinary scene, it’s that it’s always changing, and this feature’s just gotten a sleek new update one long-awaited opening: Stephens Deli. Not only is it Hialeah's oldest deli but it's a great place to grab a hearty Reuben and a craft cocktail—the revitalized deli features an adjacent Hialeah-themed bar, La Cocina. Where else can you get your deli fix and knock one back all in one trip?
What do we look for in the best delis in Miami? Well, here in the USA, the deli—or, if you want to go old-school, delicatessen—has long been a place where you can go and grab prepared sandwiches, soups and more dishes you won’t find at your usual fast-casual spot. It’s not quite the same as the best diners in Miami or the best bakeries in Miami. The deli is more comprehensive. Many people think about traditional American Jewish cuisine when they think about delis: matzo ball soup and pastrami on rye. And kosher delis are still a strong tradition in the states—especially in Miami. But the deli is flexible. Below, we have the usual kosher options but also butcher shops pulling double duty, a super authentic Russian restaurant and more that will blow away both your notion of a deli and your tastebuds.
