Miami may not have any actual Michelin starred restaurants, but there are plenty of worthy restaurants in the Magic City. Check out these restaurants for a 5-star experience.
Zuma is a London import that had all of Miami hot and bothered at its arrival. Now, a few years later, Zuma still deserves our praises with water front dining, and a seriously zen interior. Miso marinated black cod and pork belly skewers in a light soy glaze are signature dishes.
Milos is a New York-based Greek seafood restaurant that melts more hearts than Helen of Troy. A fresh fish case allows patrons to choose their own dinner in the gleaming, modern restaurant. Food here is best ordered simply to allow the quality of the ingredients to shine through. Try one of their grilled Mediterranean whole fishes with olive oil & fresh lemon for a divine experience.

Chef Jean George Vongerichten’s Bal Harbour creation is worthy of much praise. Spectacular ocean views from the swanky St. Regis, top-shelf service and clean, delicious cuisine make this restaurant star worthy. Soy-glazed short ribs, Milk-fed veal chops and Seared Scallops are favorites on the continental menu.
Hakkasan is a big deal. One of the best Chinese restaurants anywhere, it has received a Four Diamond Award and was rated ‘Best Newcomer’ in South Florida by Zagat’s. A romantic atmosphere at the top of the Fontainebleau, hand-pulled noodles and delicious dumplings make this a must-try. Our favorites? Cod with Champagne and honey sauces and a fiery Red Snapper with Scallion.
Tosca prides itself on having the rarest, most expensive ingredients in the world. A tank full of rare blue lobsters (only one out of every 2 million lobsters are blue), 100 % pure, acorn-fed pata negra ham and very special olive oil demonstrate this reality. Enjoy Mediterranean fare in a quaint, indoor-outdoor garden venue that evokes the Dolce Vita while you eat some of the best food on the planet.
