The restaurant delivery boom of 2020, caused mainly by nationwide restaurant closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, taught us that a great restaurant meal can still be possible at home. It also led to plenty of local brick-and-mortar restaurants stepping up their delivery game, along with an onslaught of new delivery-only restaurants serving everything from vibrant Cuban food to perfectly portioned omakase boxes.

Below are Miami’s top 15 takeout and delivery options that standout from the crowd. Pro tip: Ordering directly from a restaurant helps their bottomline as using a delivery platform such as Postmates or UberEats comes with hefty fees for consumers and restaurants.

The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.
