The Best Restaurants in Miami

Dining in Miami provides a cultural experience. The city has a wide array of restaurants with menus inspired by international foods. Its culinary scene is influenced by Cuban, Latin American, Italian, Peruvian, and Caribbean fare. There are both affordable and upscale restaurants around the city for diners to choose from, including trendy grills in downtown Miami with rooftop or patio dining, stylish waterfront restaurants with oceanfront views, and inexpensive beachfront diners in and around Miami Beach. The fashion neighborhood (known as the Miami Design District) and South Beach (popular for out-of-towners) are also hot spots to find the best restaurants in Miami.
