Miami Restaurants for Hungry New Yorkers
It's like Manhattan with palm trees
Bienvenido a Miami!
This weekend, tens of thousands of people will fly to Miami for Miami Art Week.
If you’re a New Yorker in Miami for the weekend, don’t fret — for all its differences, Miami is getting more and more like Manhattan - but with palm trees.
If you’re feeling homesick for your favorite foods, here are five eateries that have made their way from the Big Apple to the Magic City.
Major Food Group’s Miami takeover started with Carbone. The Italian eatery opened in Miami Beach less than a year ago and became instantly buzzworthy for its spicy rigatoni vodka dish. That pasta can be seen on nearly every Miamian’s Instagram page. 49 Collins Ave, Miami Beach.
Simon Kim’s Korean steakhouse has landed in Miami’s Design District Neighborhood. This trendy area, filled with shops like Dior, Tom Ford, and Gucci, also has a significant amount of fine dining choices, with Cote being at the top of the list. 3900 NE Second Ave., Miami.
Straight from Brooklyn to South Beach. Mark Iacono has brought his famous Lucali pies to Miami Beach so New Yorkers never have to say Miami has crappy pizza ever again. 1930 Bay Rd, Miami Beach.
Red Rooster Overtown
Chef Marcus Samuelsson opened his Harlem eatery, Red Rooster, in Overtown. Long considered the Harlem of the South, Overtown is rich with historical and cultural significance for Miami’s Black community. Before dining on chef Tristen Epps’ soulful fare, take time to seek out the memorabilia from stellar names like Aretha Franklin, Muhammad Ali, and Sam Cooke. After dinner, walk up the stairs to Red Rooster’s lounge, located at the former Clyde Killen’s Pool Hall for cocktails. Oh, those boxing gloves on the wall? They’re Muhammad Ali’s. 920 NW Second Ave., Miami.
It’s understood that one of the few things New Yorkers will wait in line for is a Shake Shack burger. The beauty of Miami is that Shake Shack never has a long wait, so take advantage of that tidbit and grab a ShackBurger as an edible souvenir. Various locations.
