Lost Boy piña colada

So far, this has probably been the oddest summer on record. With most folks staying close to home instead of jetting off to fun adventures half way around the world, turning the backyard into Club Med seems to be the safest option. Pool toys and music help set the tone, but what seals the deal is a refreshing piña colada in hand. Here are some of Miami’s favorite spots offering vacation in a plastic cup.

As always in these times, check the social media handles and websites for details like menu items and delivery hours as they may change as these restaurants adapt to these new business models. Also, always remember to tip well and call before using a delivery platform such as Postmates or UberEats, which comes with hefty fees for consumers and restaurants.

Editor’s note: outdoor dining is still permitted for restaurants in Miami-Dade County, and for those offering outdoor seating it is noted below.
