Bagatelle Miami Beach Bagatelle / Via bagatellemiami.com Type of Food: FrenchAddress: 220 21st Street, Miami Beach, FL 33139The walls of this trendy, upscale South Beach spot are adorned in pop art, and in years past, the restaurant has hosted Art Basel-inspired events. Come for the brunch, stay for the afternoon-long party. 2. 27 Restaurant Via instagram.com, Via instagram.com, Via instagram.com Type of Food: AmericanAddress: 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach, FL 33140Located in Miami Beach, this eclectic restaurant is set in a revamped house from the 1930s. It just so happens to be attached to both the Freehand Hotel and the hotel's resident cocktail bar, Broken Shaker, and the funky three offer up great food, delicious drinks, vibrant colors, and cool hipster vibes without feeling pretentious. 3. Drunken Dragon Via instagram.com Type of Food: Korean BBQ/Asian-inspiredAddress: 1424 Alton Rd., Miami Beach, FL 33139While the exterior of this South Beach Korean BBQ is unassuming, the inside is anything but. In addition to a fun DIY food experience (perfect for late nights), you can expect lots of wood, lots of rope, and lots of pics of Japanese bondage. 4. Upland Upland Type of Food: American/Pizza/PastaAddress: 49 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139This is the South Beach outpost of the New York restaurant by the same name. And with plenty of room for big groups, bottomless brunch, seasonal tasting menus, a daily happy hour, and dishes for everyone, it's just as reliable as the OG. 5. Joe's Stone Crab Joe's Stone Crab Type of Food: SeafoodAddress: 11 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, FL, 33139Joe's Stone Crab is a Miami Beach institution. It originated in 1913 and has been serving the area ever since. Visiting Joe's is a whole thing, and there's a lot you should know before you go. There will definitely be a wait, and it will definitely be worth it. After all, Art Basel falls during stone crab season! 6. Esotico Via instagram.com Type of Food: Bar foodAddress: 1600 NE 1st Avenue, Miami, FL 33132Esotico just opened in Downtown's Arts & Entertainment District this August, and already it's earning a reputation as a Miami must. Though it's known more for its tiki craft cocktails, rum drinks, and shaved ice shaved table side, there's plenty of "tropical chow" on the menu too, including an octopus hot dog. 7. The Salty Donut Danielle Margherite / Via instagram.com Type of Food: Baked goodsAddress: 50 NW 23rd Street, #112, Miami, FL 33127Trust us when we tell you to get the guava and cheese at this artisan Wynwood spot. It's, well, art. Everything is made in-house, and the family-owned bakery/coffee bar bases its dough on their own fluffy brioche recipe. (If the line is too long, try the South Miami location, though there'll probably be a wait there too.) 8. Alter Max Lipton / instagram.com / Via instagram.com Type of Food: New AmericanAddress: 223 NW 23rd Street, Miami, FL 33127Look up "best places to eat in Miami," and you'll find this Wynwood restaurant on nearly every single list. Come prepared for an experience. This is a tasting menu kind of place, and the dishes are as artful as anything you'll see during your daily dose of Basel. Make sure you try the soft egg dish, pictured above. 9. KYU Rashida Sol / Via instagram.com, Rashida Sol / Via instagram.com Type of Food: Asian-inspiredAddress: 251 NW 25th Street, Miami, FL 33127Another Wynwood winner, the neighborhood's creative spirit is what inspired Michael Lewis and Steven Haigh to open KYU's doors there. This is another place where the food is inspired and you can't really make a bad pick. But now that everyone's caught on to that fact, it'd be wise to make a reservation. 10. Zak the Baker Via zakthebaker.com, Via zakthebaker.com, Zak the Baker, Via zakthebaker.com Type of Food: Baked goodsAddress: 295 NW 26th Street, Miami, FL 33127Another Wynwood fave? Yep. Visit this kosher bakery for what may be the best babka you've ever had— or for any other pastry or sandwich on the menu. You'll be pleased no matter what. After you're finished, don't be shy about snapping a pic against the bright kaleidoscopic walls outside. You won't be the only one. 11. Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink Via instagram.com Type of Food: New AmericanAddress: 130 NE 40th Street, Miami, FL 33137The Deign District's food scene is thriving, thanks in part to Michael's, which opened in 2007. Another Miami favorite, the restaurant earned head chef and owner Michael Schwartz a James Beard Award. And if that means nothing to you, this sure will: The food is good, the service is great, and the energy is just right.👌 12. NIU Kitchen Via instagram.com, Via instagram.com Type of Food: CatalanAddress: 134 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132In the mood for something different? Head to this Downtown Spanish spot that encourages you to "close your eyes" and "point" when ordering. You won't be disappointed; the menu is stacked with flavorful dishes, not the least of which is a cold tomato soup that comes served with a big scoop of mustard ice cream. Mustard! 13.
