Stanzione 87

The original authentic Neapolitan pizzeria in Miami, Stanzione 87 serves up piping hot wood-fired pies straight from the oven. With fresh ingredients imported from Italy and homemade mozzarella, even the simplest margherita pie is absolutely delicious. A great wine list featuring natural wines and Italian imports, and an extensive craft beer selection, rounds out the menu.

River Oyster Bar

A Brickell favorite since 2003, River Oyster Bar is the go-to for a classic seafood menu. Nosh on staples like crab cakes, mussels, and squid ink spaghetti in an elevated, contemporary setting. And don’t miss their excellent Happy Hour, featuring ½ price oysters and $6 prosecco, daily from 4:30-7pm.

Cantina La Veinte

Expect to find top-notch Mexican cuisine at this popular Brickell spot. Cantina La Veinte is a real cantina, with a menu that merges traditional Mexican dishes and culinary techniques alongside innovative avante-garde twists. The make-your-own tacos are a particularly fun and tasty option, and stop by on Sundays for a prix-fixe unlimited á la carte menu and bottomless margaritas, champagne, and rosé from 11:00am-5pm.

Novikov Miami 

Head to Novikov for a hot downtown Miami scene and an exceptional menu of sushi, dim sum, and Chinese main dishes. The trendy setting also makes for excellent people-watching while sipping one of Novikov’s signature cocktails, like the Tokyo Mule or Lychee Martini.


La Petite Maison   

Enjoy upscale French-Mediterranean fare in the heart of the financial and business District at La Petite Maison. With a menu of sophisticated Niçoise dishes, a meal in their Belle Epoque-style interior is a delight from start to finish. La Petite Maison is every bit as warm and inviting as it is classy.
