Situated just north of Bal Harbour and Haulover Park, Sunny Isles Beach is a laid-back seaside community also known as Florida’s Rivera. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, the tranquil community is home to Samson Oceanfront Park, Newport Fishing Pier, and some of Miami-Dade County’s most high-end modern residences. Just north of that is Aventura, a planned city with more of an urban feel that makes for one of the best places to live and work in South Florida.
Both residential areas offer dynamic culinary scenes, a diversity of good restaurants that have made them dining destinations in their own right. Below, a map of the 13 best restaurants to visit.
