2 Trendy Miami Restaurants To Try
If you’re in your 20’s (or even 30’s) and you’re stuck somewhere between wanting to go out and have fun but also wanting to be in bed by midnight, these two restaurants in Miami are great options for enjoying an amazing meal and even better vibes.
Miami offers so many things to do and even more options for enjoying a great meal. I spent this particular weekend with my fiance, but whether you’re with a significant other or your group of girlfriends, these restaurants are great options to add to your list.
Located in South Beach, Mila offers Mediterranean Japanese fusion with AMAZING drinks. They also have a super cool rooftop lounge if you’re interested in that. It’s glamorous, sophisticated, and unique with lots of lounge-type seating.
The dinner menu offers smaller options that you can pick from to share or amazing entrees that are a little pricey, but worth it if you like to splurge on this type of thing while on vacation.
We ended up getting a salad, a few appetizers, and dessert which ended up being plenty for the two of us and we were able to save a bit of money bypassing the pricey entrees (including their $300 tomahawk steak).
Don’t skip out on the drinks either! They’re all carefully crafted and even if you don’t go here for dinner, it’s an amazing option for drinks either before or after you head to dinner elsewhere. Highly recommend based on vibes alone, but the drinks and food will make you want to stay.
Komodo can be found in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami, which is where we also stayed during our time here (I’ll save this for another day, but I HIGHLY recommend staying in Brickell).
Komodo had the most amazing atmosphere and a long line outside the front when we showed up for our reservations.
They offer Southeast Asian food and the menu is diverse enough to include something for everyone — including the Peking duck which is lined up and displayed at the restaurant’s entrance. We ended up ordering several different things to share, and our bill quickly added up but it was SO worth it.
The service here was unreal and the restaurant is massive with one cohesive vibe but divided into different sections, including 3 stories of seating and an outside section designed as a tropical terrace.
If you’ve never had Peking duck, I’d highly recommend trying it. They offer it in a few different dishes so you don’t have to commit to ordering a whole duck (we tried the duck lettuce wraps). We also tried a few different things that I hadn’t seen on a menu before, including the Thai beef jerky which was 10/10.
If I had to pick one place in Miami to absolutely make a reservation for, it’d be Komodo. Reservations fill up fast so make one in advance. I wouldn’t lead you in the wrong direction ;)
