Best Beach Bites On South Beach & Beyond

South Beach

As the rest of the country is pulling out their sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes, Miami and South Beach, the cities of eternal summer, are known for having the most gorgeous beaches in the world and endless days in the hot sand. But as the sun begins to set and you begin to pack up after a long day at the beach, your stomach begins to growl and you ask yourself, “What should I eat for dinner tonight”? Luckily, Miami Dade & South Beach are known not only for their year round beaches but also for their wide variety of decadent restaurants, offering some of the best beach bites in town. And many of these restaurants in Miami now offer outdoor patio dining options (usually with a spectacular view!) for a more casual [socially distanced] setting and takeout.

While there are hundreds of South Beach restaurants to choose from, here are some of our favorite hot spots for delicious bites and some of our favorite items on their menus.
