If you’re a foodie like me, you get super excited when the season changes; it often brings new inventive dishes. Of course no one is thirstier for fame than chefs with an up and coming restaurant. This Memorial Day weekend and summer enjoy the Miami sun and eat some amazing food. Below you will find a few upscale restaurants that really embrace the meaning of fine dining.
If you haven’t been to Miami before, it isn’t exactly known for omakase restaurants; but this is changing with a new restaurant called Hiden. A restaurant compiled of only 8 seats in the entire restaurant (gasp), this trendy spot is actually hidden behind a The Taco Stand in Wynwood. The actual location is not provided till 1 hour prior to your reservation, which is when you’ll also receive your password to enter the restaurant. The password expires 15 minutes after your reservation starts, so don’t be late or it’ll cost you! Not a cheap meal at $130.00 per person, but their 8-course tasting menu is worth the hit to your bank account.
Probably one of the most stunning restaurants I’ve ever seen, and food so good that it landed a part in this article. Mediterranean cuisine is often misunderstood, and no there will not be any dishes with hummus in it. When you think of this cuisine, think of the Middle Eastern and African roots that it originated from. Menu features such as the Cornish hen in lentil sauce, or duck lamb ribs really bring a sophisticated outlook to the cuisine.
Michelin Starred chef, Jose Andres, produces another talk-worthy restaurant in Miami. Here he showcases his extraordinary skills with seafood. If you haven’t been to any of Jose Andres’ restaurants, you should probably know that his dishes are over the top in flavor and price. Save this for a special occasion if you’re not looking to drop a paycheck. If you do go here be sure to try the So Po Boy Jose filled with fried oysters, caviar, and nestled in a steamed brioche bun.
From the masterminds behind some of the top restaurants in London, we welcome La Petite Maison. Located in the heart of Brickell, this chic upscale French and Mediterranean restaurant is often frequented by celebrities and foodies alike. One thing that everyone has in common, they’re all looking for a delicious dining experience. This restaurant comes with no exceptions with its fresh yellow tail carpaccio, and yes I said yellow tail! Also, don’t miss out on trying their very old-school escargot dish.
KYU, another lovechild from the geniuses of Zuma, offering Asian cuisine with wood-fire flavors. Their atmosphere has a very hip, simplistic vibe but this helps showcase their beautiful dishes. Even though this restaurant utilizes a wood-fire for most of their cooking, they replant 5 trees for every tree they burn. Celebrities like the ‘Food God’ frequent here. If you do have a chance to stop in, be sure to try the Burrata and the bone in rib eye.
