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.
Wednesday at Mau Miami
This Wednesday join us in the festive spirit as we celebrate Drinksgiving — a prelude to the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. Come with us to Mau Miami which has unveiled holiday-themed drinks just in time for the occasion!
Fall-signature cocktails at the Bohemian Midtown restaurant include the Pumpkin Spice Old Fashioned prepared with bourbon, pumpkin syrup, pecan bitters, and garnished with a cinnamon stick. Comforting and aromatic, it’s basically Thanksgiving in liquid form. For those fond of luscious delights there’s also the Pumpkin Spice Russian prepared with vodka, Kahlua, and topped with pumpkin spice cream. Cheers!
Mau Miami is located at 3252 NE 1st Ave #109, Miami, FL 33137. For more information, visit their official website.
Thursday at Toscana Divino
Feel like going out for Thanksgiving? So do we! While a majority of the city’s restaurants will be closed for the holiday, there is one that’s staying open and preparing an immaculate feast for friends and families alike. Toscana Divino will be hosting its Thanksgiving Experience all day long on the 23rd whether you’re stopping by for brunch, lunch, or dinner.
For $80 per person we’ll be indulging in those comforting Thanksgiving specialties we all know and love, but with a Tuscan twist. There will be plenty of stuffing going around — made with Italian fennel sausage, focaccia, and apples, to be exact. Pan-roasted Brussels sprouts with cranberries, pumpkin gnocchi au gratin with bechamel and grana padano, and velvety potato puree all make special appearances before the star of the show. Then it’s time for the grand act — the juicy roasted turkey brined in the restaurant’s signature spice blend. The only thing left is the sweet finale — almond and pumpkin pie with an amaretto cookie crumble and vanilla whipped cream. This might just be the most divine Thanksgiving meal we’re about to indulge in and we can’t wait. Reservations are highly recommended.

Friday at Tanuki River Landing
The Friday after Thanksgiving join us for an incredible lunch experience at Tanuki River Landing. Lunch by the River is the newly opened Asian fusion restaurant’s amazing lunch special featuring 2 courses for $25 or 3 courses for $30, including a dessert of the Tanuki signature mochi and coffee.
Grab a seat with a picturesque view of the river and choose from a variety of delectable options. For appetizers diners can choose between miso soup and edamame, while entree options include succulent dishes like mango chicken, vegetable udon, Mongolian beef with wild mushrooms, and salmon with avocado, to name a few, all served with a bowl of fluffy white rice. While you’re there enjoying the view, you don’t want to skip on the restaurant’s signature cocktails — the Kyuri Sour is a refreshing cocktail of cucumber-infused sake with pineapple and lemon that pairs amazingly with any meal.
Sunday at RED South Beach
November 26 marks National Cake Day. We probably mentioned it before and we’ll mention it again—the cakes served in the country’s best steakhouse are unparalleled. That’s why on Sunday evening we’re having our dessert stomach ready and heading for cake and cocktails at RED South Beach.
Chef Peter Vauthy always has a daily rotating selection of his finest creations whether it’s the incredibly indulgent layered chocolate cake or any other pastry he’s created this day or that. One thing that’s always featured on the menu, however, is the massive New York cheesecake made with a triple berry compote, raspberry jam, and chantilly cream. But you already know Red is a go-hard or go-home kind of place, right?
