Mandolin, located in the Design District, boasts fresh, healthy food inspired by homespun recipes from Greece and Turkey. Their entire menu is simple but totally delicious. They’re the epitome of Mediterranean cuisine.
I love Zuma because of the Japanese izakaya dining style. It’s all about ordering a bunch of plates and sharing. The food is authentic but not traditional. All their menu items are bold in flavor and made with the best quality ingredients.
Pura Vida is a great spot for light, fresh and healthy meals. They promise simple food made with locally sourced, fresh ingredients and a sustainable approach to everything they do.
Pubbelly isn’t your average sushi bar. While sushi is the star of the show, they raise the bar with a super fun environment and their brunch specials are to die for.
Byblos blends classic techniques and modern methods to create unreal Eastern Mediterranean dishes. All of their meals showcase what makes various regions unique, from spices and flavours alike!
Southeast Asia and South Florida come together at KOMODO, a three-story indoor/outdoor eatery and lounge in the booming Brickell neighborhood. Everything about it has a vibe – from the contemporary Southeast Asian food and various cocktail bars, right down to the decor and the floating birds nests seats!
