From the hustling and bustling Downtown Dadeland to the vibrantly diverse, up-and-coming West Kendall, new locally owned eateries are showing up on almost every corner in the Kendall area.

Below are 15 different restaurants that have helped put Kendall on the map, listed in geographical order from north to south.

Editor’s Note: A number of South Florida restaurants have resumed outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for outdoor dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
