Verde, located in the new Pérez Art Museum Miami with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, is a modern, casual restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is locally inspired featuring dishes prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Hand-crafted specialty cocktails and a select list of food friendly wines complement the creative cuisine. For those on the go, Verde’s coffee bar serves pastries and sweets, fresh juices, sandwiches and salads, artisanal cheeses and specialty coffee drinks.

<br />Altamare - a hidden “locals only” secret in Sobe - is a fusion between owner Claudio Giordano’s two passions: Italian cuisine and fishing. These aspects come together in a menu that showcases the best catches from local fishing boats intermingled with classic Italian dishes. <br /><br />Our décor reflects South Beach style however, the food is anything but pretentious. The likes of wahoo crudo; fresh oysters; short rib lasagnette; and beautifully presented fresh fish are just a few items that keep locals coming back. <br /><br />We are located on the Western end of Lincoln road mall, just off the beaten path. Stray from the overly-commercial glamorized retail stores and tourist trap eateries, with a short hop across Alton Road to discover this local favorite.

Located at the famed Vagabond Hotel in the Miami Modern (MiMo) historical district, the Vagabond Restaurant & Bar is a "casual fine dining" concept catering to the "contemporary Vagabond," a modern-day adventurer with a penchant for global food, drink, and art. The restaurant will feature a global menu anchored in American, Latin and Asian influences. The menu is a coalescence of Executive Chef Alex Chang’s experiences over the last few years, having had stints at such renowned restaurants as Animal in Los Angeles, Pujol in Polanco, Mexico, Les Creations de Narisawa in Tokyo, and In De Wulf in Heuvelland, Belgium. Menu items feature many locally sourced ingredients and the style of service is high-energy, warm, and unpretentious. The Vagabond Restaurant & Bar is located at 7301 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33138.

Drunken Dragon is an Asian inspired gastro pub. Think Japanese izakaya, mixed with a Korean BBQ restaurant crossed with an English styled tavern.

Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches are served alongside more inventive dishes, including Tuna Tataki and Wagyu Gyoza. Complementing the menu are signature cocktails made with exotic spirits such as shochu and cachaça and an acclaimed sake list, as well as wine, beer and champagne. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.

 Oolite Restaurant &amp; Bar
Oolite Restaurant & Bar
Oolite received 3.5 stars from the Miami Herald for Chef Partner Kris Wessel's original concept of Healthy Regional Fare inspired by the food culture and bounty of product in the region of Florida, the American South, the Caribbean and South America. Created as a healthy based cuisine, the entire menu is gluten free and protein specific. Oolite's kitchen technique is diverse using modern and time tested approaches to production including slow cooking, poaching, steaming, smoking, grilling, dehydrating and preserving. The seasonal menu allows a continual creative approach, always identifying with locals on favorite food use and recipes. Oolite is housed in a Frank Gehry building, just two steps off Lincoln Road, and adjacent to the Convention Center and the Fillmore Theater. Oolite's Craftsman interior design references mid century American with hand crafted wood tables, wainscoting, glass and pure Oolite limestone. The Artisanal wine and beer program was singled out for originality.
