The 38 Essential Miami Restaurants, October 2012

View as Map

Here, now, is an updated version of Miami's Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” This highly elite group, which is in no particular order of importance or rank, has been culled from a panel of experts and covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines, histories, locations, and, collectively, satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those who are never happy. Every couple of months, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game.

After much reflecting and pouring over reader emails and comments, we've decided to drop Old Lisbon, Sakaya Kitchen, and the closed down Dining Room. The good news is that in their places, we shine light on Mandolin Aegean Bistro and Blue Collar, while we bring back Gigi.

Think we missed something? Temper tantrum not necessary- just nominate your favorite restaurant in the comments section or drop us a line. Pop-up restaurants, however, do not qualify.
