Substance and style: La Mar isn’t the kind of restaurant that’ll sweep you off your feet with its killer views and then leave you hanging with mediocre food. Nope, the food is equally as impressive as the scenery. The modern Peruvian-Asian restaurant doles out interesting ceviches (15 of them, to be exact), complex seafood dishes and traditional South American flavors. At the Anticuchos bar, explore La Mar’s take on popular Peruvian street food made with Wagyu beef, chicken, octopus, whole jumbo prawn and Peruvian asparagus.
Unlike other big cities on the edge of the Atlantic, Miami has a bit of everything when it comes to dining on the water. Lively dockside dives, glamorous Mediterranean-inspired lounges and wellness-focused options abound. From seafood towers and $1 oysters to dog-friendly decks where piña coladas flow like water, Miami has that and more. Sure, we might be spoiled by the abundance of pristine Miami beaches, and our Miami rooftop bars offer their own spectacular views. But if you’re not taking every opportunity to eat at one of Miami’s many waterfront restaurants, you’re doing something wrong.
