An Essential Guide to Weston Restaurants

If the city were any farther west it would be called the Everglades    

View as Map

Home to minivans, kids on bikes and lots of parks, Weston is the epitome of suburbia. The city was established in 1996 and developed by the same company that developed Walt Disney World, making for pastel colored buildings and ample sidewalks. About 45 percent of the population identifies as Hispanic, giving way to culinary fusions and exciting South American imports. Weston may be an hour away from Miami, but great food can be found in the suburbs. Here’s the proof.

Note: Venues are listed in geographical order from north to south.

Entretapas

Copy Link

Locals visit Entretapas to sip sangria and enjoy a long meal with friends. Specializing in Spanish cuisine, the menu features a variety of paellas, full-sized entrees and tapa-style items like pulpo a la gallega—thinly sliced octopus on a bed of potatoes topped with olive oil and paprika. The experience wouldn’t be complete without music and flamenco. The restaurant hosts guitar and flamenco shows four days a week on its “tablao.”

My Organic Corner

For those who are vegetarian, vegan or just environmentally conscious, My Organic Corner is a must. The menu features items like raw pad Thai, avocado pizza and lentil beet burgers. As if the meatless options weren’t enough, all food is served on biodegradable ware, so guests can feel good about dining out.

Gelato Gourmet

Before finding its permanent home in Weston, Gelato Gourmet sold its richer-than-ice-cream frozen treats at Miami-Dade and Broward farmers markets. Although the frozen treats can still be found at various farmers markets, guests can get their fix daily at the gelateria, which offers classic flavors like Gianduja and more tropical flavors like tamarind and guanabana.

Zona Blu Weston

Voted the best Italian restaurant by the City of Weston in 2017, Zona Blu is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. The restaurant prides itself in showcasing Italy’s often-overlooked Sardinian cuisine, which has a lot of Mediterranean influence and gives way to dishes like the fregola sarda ai frutti di mare—a couscous style pasta simmered in a fish tomato broth then tossed with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and mixed seafood.

La Pequeña Colombia Bakery & Restaurant

Copy Link

La Pequeña Colombia translates to The Little Colombia, which accurately describes its place in the Weston community. It has been a local staple for over 15 years, delivering Colombian classics like ajiaco, a soul-warming soup made with three varieties of potato, or bandeja paisa, a platter loaded with red beans, chicharron, ground beef, white rice, a patacon, a fried egg and an arepa. It’s easy to feel at home in this eatery, where the walls are lined with Botero paintings, and guests are treated like family. 

La Perla

With its colorful walls, laid-back atmosphere and live music, La Perla is the go-to place for Peruvian fare in Weston. People visit La Perla for the hot dishes like lomo saltado and ají de gallina, but they stay for the ceviche, which is always served with choclo and always pairs well with a pisco sour cocktail.

Raw Juce

The acai bowl trend might have been fashionably late to Weston, but it sure made an entrance. Raw Juce is one of the only places in town that offers smoothie bowls complete with aesthetically pleasing toppings like bee pollen, cocoa nibs and brightly colored fruits. “Açaid” from the bowls, Raw Juce also has an assortment of cold-pressed juices, smoothies and salads.

The Cheese Course

While The Cheese Course now has 10 locations and another one opening soon in Miami Beach, the franchise’s very first location lies in the heart of Weston. Locals love it for its European atmosphere and simple bistro menu, which features soups, salads and sandwiches like the prosciutto sandwich with mozzarella, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar.

Primetime Restaurant & Bar

Copy Link

With two full bars, craft cocktails and 24 beers on tap, Primetime’s happy hour is arguably one of the best deals in town.  Drinks are half off from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. all seven days of the week. Along with its boozy concoctions, the restaurant serves up American cuisine like blackened grouper burger and bang bang chicken and shrimp.

Masan Asian Grill

Masan Asian Grill opened its doors in 2011, on the eve of the Chipotle boom. Applying Chipotle’s assembly line dining style to Asian fare, Masan allows guests create their own stir-fry. Guests choose between noodles or rice as a base, and then add vegetables, protein and sauce. It’s a good place to grab a quick lunch. The service is fast, and the food is always made-to-order.

La Rural

Copy Link

What began as a store that sold fresh cuts of meat evolved into La Rural, an Argentine steakhouse that has become a Weston staple over the past 12 years. Needless to say, meat is on the menu. The sizzling churrasco is often served on a wooden board and accompanied by an assortment of sausages.

Panna Cafe Weston

Copy Link

Panna is as Weston as it gets. Offering around-the-clock Venezuelan street food like tequeños, empanadas and cachitos, it is a popular work-lunch spot by day and a bustling watering hole for suburban youth by night. Its original Weston location is at a gas station, which only adds to the charm. About a year ago, it opened a second, more spacious establishment at the Weston Town Center.

Sushiato

Sushiato embraces Weston’s multicultural identity the same way nori embraces the contents of a sushi roll. The restaurant fuses Japanese and Latin American flavors to produce items like the guava roll, the jungle roll topped with fried wakame or the tropical spicy tuna that is served over patacones.
