Here are some of the new Miami restaurants worth checking out:
The viral square pizza that became an internet hit during quarantine days has returned to Miami's trendy Design District for good! Old Greg's renowned square pizzas are back on the menu, along with some circular pizza options. Other fan-favorites like the polenta-crusted chicken wings, Italian salad, garlic knots, and tres leches cake are also back. The restaurant no longer requires a reservation, but you should still check the restaurant's website for their regular business hours and menu items.
Mandolin Aegean Bistro
Mandolin Aegean Bistro is the perfect date spot. Mezzes, freshly made pita bread, and an entire grilled fish for two are just a few highlights of the items that are meant to be shared. The food and drinks on the menu add to the restaurant's cozy and intimate ambiance. Mandolin's delicious homemade sangria will have you feeling like you're on an exotic vacation.
In an area like South Beach, where everything is glitz, glamour, and velvet curtains, Stubborn Seed stands out with its unique allure. Top chef Jeremy Ford's food has a careful subtlety that is both foreign and comforting. Jalapeño fritters and cacio e pepe cheese puffs are two examples of delicious appetizers that will have you wondering why you haven't tried them sooner. Once you have them, you won't stop thinking about them.
Pretty Swell, in the SoFi, serves food all day and takes its cues from the laid-back beach lifestyle of the area to feature an assortment of fresh seafood and veggies. In the mornings, the garden terrace becomes a cafe serving beverages, snacks, and breakfast foods like avocado toast and acai bowls.
For lunch and dinner, it offers watermelon salad, shrimp ceviche, spicy feta toast, sun-dried tomato hummus, and grilled fish, among other items. A chic patio space with sofas, low tables, and fringed umbrellas is waiting for you to relax and enjoy some natural wines or cocktails. This is a pretty cool option among new Miami restaurants.
Cote Miami introduces a new standard to Miami's dining scene with its chic yet welcoming atmosphere and refined yet familiar menu. Servers will prepare your dry-aged beef on the spot using smokeless charcoal grills installed on each table. We recommend getting a taste of all the restaurant offers with the Butcher's Feast sampling experience. This will free up some cash so you can enjoy one of their outstanding craft cocktails, such as the Esteban, a remarkably refined mezcal negroni.
