Toscana Divino

Miami is a city where many business deals are sealed over delectable meals. But with countless restaurants to choose from, picking the perfect spot to impress your clients can be overwhelming. Fear not: We’ve put together this list of great eateries that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. 

Costa Med

For some privacy, escape the city bustle by heading to Costa Med in Key Biscayne. This hidden gem offers an exquisite taste of the Mediterranean, with an emphasis on fresh seafood dishes—there’s something for everyone, though. Something to note: It is on the smaller side, so make sure you and your client have a reservation. The idyllic setting is ideal for a business lunch that feels like a well-deserved break.

El Turco

Want to feel like you’re not in Miami anymore? Take your client to El Turco, the Michelin-recognized Turkish restaurant in Upper Buena Vista. The outdoor café offers up authentic cuisine bursting with fresh flavors and Mediterranean spices in a gorgeous setting. 

The restaurant’s namesake salad is a solid start to any meal, and you cannot leave without trying El Turco’s delectable manti. And, of course, you need to get the baklava to finish on a high note. Be sure to also check the place out for happy hour if schedules permit.


Pasta is a business meal staple, and Giorgina serves up plenty to leave everyone satisfied. The Wynwood restaurant features fresh selections like truffle tagliolini, pappardelle Bolognese, and butternut squash tortellini. Besides all these carbs, Giorgina is home to an array of main plates like short rib, veal scallopini, and wild langoustines. If your client has a picky palate, Giorgina has something for them.

Giorgina is located at 2700 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127. For more information, visit their official website.


Immerse your clients in a world of modern Japanese cuisine at Ogawa in Little River. This acclaimed restaurant features only 11 seats, making for a truly unique and unforgettable omakase dining experience. Everything is offered at the peak of seasonality, so you’re getting your money’s worth. Pro tip: Expense this meal.  

Ogawa is located at 7223 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33150. For more information, visit their official website

Paperfish Sushi

Looking for the ultimate power lunch? Paperfish offers a delectable omakase experience alongside an extensive à la carte menu of Peruvian-Japanese (Nikkei) fare. The sleek ambiance and impeccable service create a perfect backdrop for enjoying some of Brickell’s best sushi—and for sealing the deal. If food isn’t on the agenda, stop by for the restaurant’s generous happy hour; good luck finding a better deal on drinks in the neighborhood.

RED South Beach

For a quintessential Miami experience, look no further than RED South Beach in South of Fifth. This iconic steakhouse offers a luxurious ambiance complete with impressive service and an award-winning wine list. As you’d expect, the star of the show is the expertly prepared prime-cut steaks, cooked to perfection and guaranteed to impress the most discerning business client. This is THE place for a business meal in Miami Beach. 

Toscana Divino

Indulge in a taste of Italy at Toscana Divino. This upscale eatery in the heart of Mary Brickell Village boasts an impressive wine list and a menu featuring fresh pastas and other European delights. We love that the menu is large and constantly changes, so no two dining experiences are the same (except in quality). If you only get one dish, make it the restaurant’s signature risotto.
