What to Eat in Miami

Largely an international city, cuisine from all over the world can be found in Miami. Quickly becoming a haven for foodies, main stays like Cuban and Pervuian cuisine mingle with classic American comfort food and Japanese sushi. With its waterfront location, fresh seafood isn't hard to come by either. 

Many restaurants have a history in the community, dating back decades, such as the authentic Cuban food found at Versailles Restaurant and the fresh, sustainable seafood at Garcias Seafood Grille and Fish Market. Or venture to Little Haiti for a taste of the Caribbean at Chef Creole's. Note that some of the more casual spots only take cash. 

Other newcomers like Secreto combine Latin, European and Asian flavors to create something that's distinctly Miamian. If you're looking for dining that's a bit more upscale, look no further than the hotel restaurants that line the downtown area. Highly rated by experts and locals, restaurants like Gibraltar in the Grove Isle Hotel and Area 31 in the EPIC Hotel offer the fine dining experience with spectacular views.
