As one of America’s most popular tourist destinations and as the de facto banking capital of Latin America, Miami has no shortage of bespoke places to dine.
Adam Rosenfeld Miami is one of this city’s most successful financial advisors, so he has dined at most (if not all) of the establishments listed below.
As such, if you book a reservation at any one of these restaurants on a trip to Miami, you will be certain to have an evening that you will never forget.
When it comes to the best overall restaurant in town, Crust deserves the honor with its dedication to fine, hearty food. An Italian joint that is headed by a husband and wife team, the pride that they take in getting their specialties right has rewarded them with rave reviews from publications and ratings sites alike.
Overlooking the Miami River, the scenery outside their windows will act as the perfect compliment to their pizzas, chicken parmesan, and limoncello cake.
Those that are not fans of molecular gastronomy will appreciate this restaurant as well, as the serving sizes here won’t just fill you up, but they may have you asking for takeout containers.
Pollos & Jarras
Of all the ethnic groups that call Miami home, Hispanics are the most dominant, with two thirds hailing from or having ancestors from Mexico, Central and South America, or the Latin islands of the Caribbean.
This means that you will find a wealth of different cuisines from across the Spanish New World, with Peruvian being among the styles that stand out the most.
Pollos & Jarras is arguably Miami’s best representation of this cuisine, as this parilla in Downtown Miami has a loyal contingent of locals that sing its praises without fail.
Serving Peruvian standards such as anticuchos and ceviche along with mainstream meals for less adventurous diners, your dining party will likely be able to find something on the menu that will appeal to them. With fast and friendly service, you won’t want to miss this place.
The Capital Grille
Those looking for a place that is perfectly suited to business clients will want to book a table at The Capital Grille.
With professional valet parking, swift and attentive service, and a refined atmosphere, you’ll have the perfect environment if you are looking to strike a deal over a juicy porterhouse and a glass on vintage wine.
The steaks aren’t the only thing that former diners have raved about here though – be sure to order the crab cakes if you love seafood.
Old Lisbon Restaurant
If you are looking for some excellent Portuguese food during your visit to Miami, you won’t be able to do better than the Old Lisbon.
Situated in South Miami, the wait staff here speak the language well, making it a great place to go if you are entertaining guests from Brazil or Portugal.
They offer an expansive menu filled with Portuguese specialties ranging from caldo verde to pasteis de nata, so those looking for authenticity will not be disappointed.
