The most frequently asked question Eater Miami receives is, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” The goal of the Eater 38 is to answer that question with a list of Miami’s top restaurants, spanning the city’s best cuisines and neighborhoods. The restaurants on this list cover the entire city, span myriad cuisines, histories, and locations, and collectively satisfy any restaurant needs.
Every couple of months, the list is updated to add pertinent restaurants that were perhaps omitted or have newly become eligible (which means they’ve been open for more than six months, but usually closer to a year) or have made meaningful recent changes.
Led by chef Michael Beltran, this one-Michelin star Coconut Grove mainstay features a menu of inventive dishes with Cuban flair that reflects Beltran’s upbringing. Highlights include the grilled oysters drenched in bone marrow butter, aged wagyu ribeye, and a duck press meant for two.
