SO. MUCH. NEW.
Which restaurants captured my attention?
Which one is overrated?
Which one is worth a splurge?
Casual Coral Gables eatery by Miami OG Giorgio Rapicavoli. MUST order any of the fresh homemade pastas.
Miami Design District’s newest NYC import. Best enjoyed with a party of 4-6, this Korean steakhouse truly delivers an unforgettable experience.
The Spicy Rigatoni Vodka? Good and worth a try? Absolutely, yes. Massive hysteria have-to-have-it-again-or-I-will-die? Yeah, no. Also, not spicy. If available to you try to book through a credit card concierge, or set up notifications on the Resy app on desired dates. Otherwise, give them some time to prove their NY swag can carry them long-term in Miami.
Outstanding Wynwood newcomer. Go and order as much as you possibly can. It’s all good.
Hard to find Coral Gables spot by chef Pablo Zitzmann (remember No Name Chinese?), but worth the search. Small menu. If you visit with a party of 4, you should be able to order it all. The Charred Cabbage is a MUST. Yes, I said cabbage.
Red Rooster Overtown
Loving this new opening. Flavor bombs on every single dish. The Fried Yard Bird with the killer sour orange hot honey is the must-order dish, but the Foie Gras Charred Suya Octopus surprised and intrigued me the most.
Coastal Mexican eats never tasted this good. Predicting this will become one of my new favorite spots.
Brazilian Japanese omakase located in South Beach with plenty of party flair. Don’t let the show aspect of it fool you, this is the real deal. QUALITY everything by seasoned chef Max Kamakura.
Basque-style fine dining hiding inside the Rubell Museum. Try the tasting menu. The cheese tart is life changing. Really.
