Pastas and pizzas abound at Ironside Pizza, the namesake neighborhood’s go-to spot for all Italian food. The beautiful restaurant offers plenty of space and plenty of delicious food to host any special occasion.
Whether you want to celebrate your special occasion with small bites or large platters, La Estancia has it all covered.
Keep things casual with an assortment of empanadas and other light starters or go all out with the Argentinean restaurant’s famous parilladas, which come loaded with steak, chicken, sausage and more – it’s a meat mountain. Just make sure nobody in your party is vegan.
Don’t let the museum setting fool you: Leku is one of the best restaurants in Miami – and one of the best restaurants for celebrating special occasions.
