Miami’s eats and drinks game is on a constant wheel of new trends, so it can be a little hard to keep up with what’s new and what’s worth the investment. We’re finally moving away from concepts built specifically for Instagram virality, and into a world where the entire experience–from host stand to paying the bill–is authentic. Here are a few of our current obsessions around town that know how to see an idea through and, yes, still look good for the ‘gram.
If you thought Wynwood didn’t need another bar, you’re wrong. The Tiki Garden is a welcome addition to the bustling arts district with the lusciously laid-back vibe the neighborhood was missing. With a menu curated by the beloved BarLab crew, this brand new hidden gem is well on its way to becoming an instant classic.
It’s quite clear that the branding that goes into natural wine bottles is a constant rotation of hand-crafted art, and what better way to enjoy the designs than with the breathtakingly bohemian backdrop that Margot Natural Wine Bar provides. After a successful pop-up at Nikki Beach, the team behind Bar Lab have made a breathtakingly Instagrammable home in Downtown we love to swoon over.

Given the amount of glowing reviews in such a short time, you have more than our word for how great this Aegean place is. Authentic doesn’t begin to describe the Mediterranean feast you’ll have at DOYA, by a former Mandolin culinary genius. Dive into a wonderful selection of Greek, Turkish, and Middle Eastern small plates to choose from in a charming atmosphere right off a busy Wynwood side street.
Local foodies and cocktail lovers rejoice! The beloved Downtown eatery, Jaguar Sun has risen in Downtown again earlier last month. After spending the last year operating Sunny’s Someday Steakhouse in Little River, owners Chef Carey Hynes and Will Thompson are ready to return to the X Miami for their tropical ground floor digs. The bar and restaurant reopened with a redesigned dining room and new outdoor seating.

Those of you hankering for a fun spot to grab a drink in Coral Gables, your prayers have been answered. Cebada is the historic neighborhood’s very first rooftop restaurant and raw bar and it has seriously changed the nightlife game for locals to the area. We highly suggest checking it out.
Los Felix, Grassfed Culture Hospitality (Krus Kitchen)’s newest restaurant concept, is an open love letter to the fine and nearly extinct traditions that make up authentic Mexican cuisine. Whether a local or just traveling to Miami, Los Felix is definitely a restaurant you want on your radar. Can you say handmade tacos, vinyl DJs, and natural wine? Yes, yes you can.
