Miami not only has some of the most opulent and beautiful beaches, we have some of the most exquisite restaurants around! This city by the beach is a melting bot of wonderful different cultures and a heavy Latin American influence.

Today I am going to share with you some of the best new restaurants that have opened in Miami this season!

Primrose – South Beach
Primrose is located inside the newly renovated Stiles Hotel. You can start your night downstairs in its secret, sexy cocktail lounge Gold Bar. There you can sip on some specialty drinks before getting to dinner.  Make your way through their historic lobby to the patio on Collins Ave.

Their menu is long on fresh seafood, and you should definitely partake in the colossal gulf shrimp with cinnamon basil romesco. The Kobe beef burger with a sunny side-up egg and smoked bacon is still a must-try!

Beach Craft – Miami Beach
Tom Colicchio, the father of the ingredient-focused, farm-to-table movement, has opened a rustic, beachy restaurant at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. Designed by Meyer Davis Studio, the restaurant features an open kitchen and whitewashed woods. The minimalistic décor makes your feel like you are eating by the sea.

You have to try any locally caught fishes, or antibiotic-free meat dishes! Try Turbot with baby turnips, English peas and black garlic purée for your sides.

Sip on this cocktail, From Russia with Spice (vodka, lime, jalapeno and ginger beer). For dessert you must have the thousand-layer doughnut drizzled with key lime curd and topped with rose petals.

Byblos – Miami Beach
Byblos décor combines ancient Mediterranean artifacts with a bright and royal stylized design. An open kitchen and second story windows give you a view from every angle.

You must try there rice dishes, exclusively the Sweet Jeweled Rice. Braised Colorado Lamb with house made pickles divine as is all the small mezze plates such as the Lamb Ribs, Roasted Red Beets and simple but addictive Citrus Mixed Olives.

To drink try sipping on one of there tea-based cocktail. My favorite is the Gulab, served with rose-infused vodka, lemon, with pomegranate and rose petals on top.

For desert…The Brik Pastry Cigar with Fig Crème and pickled Bing cherries along with Yogurt Mousse Pistachio Cake served with orange blossom water and flower jam from Paradise Farms sum up the meal quite nicely.

Coya – Brickell
Brickell is known for a very authentic Latin American experience but it is also quite modern. Take one look inside Coya and it will bring you to old Latin America with its high ceilings and rotating collection of 1900s photographs.

Coya’s large open bar specializes in pisco drinks and rum cocktails. This place delivers a true members-only club experience. You must try the red snapper ceviche in shiitake mushroom and truffle leche de tigre.

Be sure to grab a bit at one of these amazing restaurants this weekend!
