The whirlwind that was moving in is finally over and now you’re on your own. And let’s be honest, living in a new city with such diversity means it can be almost impossible to find the right place for the right situation- and all you want is a good meal! Whether you’re looking to dine with the celebrities, craving a late night snack or want a place to go with your friends, South Beach, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and South Miami offer a variety of restaurants serving cuisine ranging from sushi to steak, pasta to fine pastries and everything in between. There are far too many great choices to navigate alone, so here is a guide of some well known (and some not-so-well-known) spots guaranteed to satisfy any stomach.
