Welcome to our weekly roundup of the top dining options in Miami! Stay up-to-date on the latest happenings in the Magic City with our curated selection of the best restaurants.
Tuesday at Cafe Americano
Find us celebrating Independence Day at Cafe Americano early in the a.m. The diner’s patriotic name is not the only reason we’ll be here for July 4th. Hear this—Happy hour will last all day long on Tuesday. With the restaurant opening at 9 a.m., that means you can get your drink on bright and early. And why not? It’s a holiday worth celebrating, after all!
Start with some signature brunch cocktails like the Morning Coffee made with Brugal 1888, cold brew, chocolate liquor, and whipped cream. Or, the gin-based Berry Pink with a rose reduction and prosecco. Make sure to eat a big breakfast today cause the partying won’t stop here. The spicy chicken and waffles here are unbeatable—crispy fried chicken, gold flakes, and a hot honey maple drizzle. Happy Independence Day, folks!
Wednesday at La Estancia
After the holiday it’s time to get back to it. Following a day filled with barbecues and picnics lunch will be on the lighter side. Quite frankly, we’ve been dying to try the quintessential Argentinian sandwiches, migas, over at La Estancia.
These double-layered, crust-free sandwiches are light and delicious and bring back all those lovely childhood vibes. Going for $2.25 a pop, you can get a variety of fillings including ham, cheese, eggs, and tomatoes. Pair your lunch with one of the restaurant’s divine espresso beverages. Hint: their signature coffee with dulce de leche will blow your socks off.
Thursday at CJ’s Crab Shack
This just in: CJ’s Crab Shack, the unsurpassed Ocean Drive restaurant dishing out ginormous seafood platters is also serving up stellar meat alternatives. Not feeling seafood but still want to people-watch on Ocean Drive? Perhaps there’s that one friend who just isn’t a crustacean fan? No fret, cause CJ’s has some bomb dishes totally worth trying.
For appetizers, sub the popular crab cake for the mouth-watering buffalo wings served with blue cheese. Then move on to the sandwiches—the cheeseburger here is a true American classic and comes served with crispy fries or coleslaw. There’s also the Buffalo chicken sandwich—Southern fried and smothered. If you’ve come with an insatiable appetite go straight for the rib eye steak which gives Miami’s best steakhouses some strong competition.
Saturday at Ironside Pizza
Have you heard? Happy hour at Ironside Pizza is every single day! So why not stop by on a Saturday to get your pizza on? From 4 to 6 p.m., the Upper East Side staple serves up appetizers, pizza, beer, and wine for an epic 50% off.
Stop by and get the city-favorite Che Fame pizza (mozzarella fior di latte, Italian sausages, parmacotto, and sopressata) for only $12. We couldn’t find a better deal in Miami even if we tried. Pair that with a glass of wine for as little as $4.50 and that’s a Saturday afternoon done right. Don’t keep this a secret. Invite your homies so there’s more pizza to go around!
