Amara at Paraiso

The hottest new restaurant in Miami by Michael Schwartz, located in the new Paraiso Bay complex in Edgewater with the best view in town. The menu is dynamic with bold Latin American flavors, and popular large plates for 2 like the meat parrillada. Make sure to get a table outside, so you can head over to the beachy lounge area for an after dinner cocktail.

Mandolin Aegean Bistro

The closest you’ll get to feeling like you’re dining al fresco in the Mediterranean, but in Miami’s Design District. Inspired by the tavernas of Aegean coastal towns, Mandolin’s menu features tasty Greek “mezes” like flavored hummus plates or grilled catch of the day to fill you up before browsing the nearby boutiques.

A colorful taquiera by day, speakeasy joint by night. Just enter through what looks like a port-o-potty stall on the righthand side. So, order your pork belly tacos and tortas from the Airstream trailer (right under the greatest marquee sign, ever) and the head to the “baño.”
