Rub a dub, dub, thanks for the grub.
1 South Street
As the Design District’s newest culinary spot, brought to you by Amir Ben Zion and Amaris Jones, South Street promises to meet (and exceed) all expectations. Classic favorites include fried chicken, cornbread muffins, and shrimp and grits, while the bar menu features an array of savory recipes designed by Bar Lab.
This family-style South Beach destination is the epitome of southern soul food (think chilled watermelon, biscuits, and fried chicken and waffles) and has become a local favorite amongst avid foodies. Here, you’ll load up on mac n’ cheese, shrimp n’ grits and Mama’s world-famous chicken biscuits. Proceed with caution.
The thought of Jamon Serrano and Blue Cheese Croquetas may not sound like Southern cooking, but don’t be mistaken—Michy’s is luxurious comfort food at its best. And the restaurant also has our seal of approval because of its celebrity chef and founder: Michelle Bernstein.
4 The Dutch
It’s a casual-cool spot located inside one of Miami’s most impressive hotel/condo properties, and when it comes to comfort food, The Dutch is serving it up right. From start to finish, and beginning with a brick of the restaurant’s famed corn bread, a meal at Dutch is an unparalleled experience. Try the bite-sized Oyster Sandwiches and enjoy a little piece of heaven.
Open until 3am on weekdays and 5am on weekends, Gigi’s is one of those urban dining haunts that serves straight-forward cuisine in an unpretentious environment. Go for one of Gigi’s ridiculously good Buns (the roasted pork is our favorite) for comfort food at its best.
