Catching a show at The Fillmore Miami Beach? Here are a few great spots to grab a bite before the big concert.
If you need some energy for the mosh pit, load up on carbs at the always-amazing Casa Isola. The Sunset Harbour hotspot is home to a wealth of tasty pastas and Italian specialties. Crowd favorites include the Isola arancini, burrata Panzanella, ravioli bianconeri and—of course—the rigatoni all vodka. Be on the lookout for Isola’s signature specials too: the roasted broccoli rabe may sound simple, but it packs a flavorful punch.
Casa Isola is located at 1418 20th Street, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
On this list, Joia Beach is the restaurant furthest from the Fillmore Miami Beach. But the extra time is worth it to visit this off-the-beaten-path paradise. Located on Jungle Island, Joia Beach is ideal for a laidback waterfront dinner or sunset cocktails. Enjoy hamachi crudo, octopus carpaccio, tomahawk steak, lamb chops, and more while taking in your gorgeous surroundings. One thing to note: Joia Beach is reservation-only, so a spur-of-the-moment visit is out of the question.
Joia Beach is located at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami, FL 33132. For more information, visit their official website.
Need to kill a lot of time before the show? Head on over to Kosushi, a stellar South of Fifth Japanese eatery. This is an experience that shouldn’t be rushed; you need to savor every moment and bite here. Kosushi boasts an assortment of delightful sushi and sashimi selections alongside numerous hot and cold dishes. Everyone should order a few dishes—sharing is encouraged. It’s not too close to the Fillmore, but still close enough that you’ll get to the show with plenty of time to spare.
Kosushi is located at 801 South Pointe Drive, #105, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official Instagram.
Need something quick? La Sandwicherie never disappoints. The humble sandwich shop on 14th Street is cheap, fast, and delicious—you can’t ask for more. Choose one of their signature selections or craft your own sandwich. Just make sure to upgrade your bread to a croissant—there’s just something about it that takes everything up a notch. The best part of La Sandwicherie is that it’s also open late. So if you find yourself hungry after the show, this is a great post-concert place, too.
