Holy Guacamole: The Haute 5 Mexican Restaurants in Miami

Everyone adores Mexican cuisine, from tacos, enchiladas, and burritos, to nachos, ceviches, and of course, margaritas. Since Miami is a melting pot of Latin flavor, it was no easy feat finding our favorite Mexican spots among the clutter of tamale-serving menus. From Brickell, South Beach, the Grove, Gables, and Fort Lauderdale, we put together our Haute 5 list for the places who serve the most delicious, spicy, and tangy Mexican treats in Miami.

Rosa Mexicano Restaurant
Combining all of the best flavors of Mexico, Rosa Mexicano brings you their “gold standard in upscale Mexican cuisine,” as per the Zagat survey. With three locations in New York, and six others throughout the U.S., they are no strangers to success. Their location in Mary Brickell Village is on our Haute 5 list because of their exceptional service and delicious treats.

The restaurant’s design creates a festive environment with vibrant colors and a tortilla-making station in the dining room, a 15-foot water wall, and an outdoor bar and lounge which offers an oasis in the middle of Downtown.

Not only is this spot highly acclaimed for it’s oh-so-spicy gourmet meals, but for all of the events and specials they offer their customers to always keep them coming back for more. These events include festivals for children where they serve Latin ice creams, catering, online orders delivery, their previously famous “Guac on Tap” Happy Hour (which we’re hoping makes a come back next year), and their upcoming New Year’s Eve special dinner menu that will offer rolled lobster crispy tacos, Mexican surf and turf, jumbo sea scallops, their delicious “Mousse de Granada”- a frozen pomegranate Mousse and to drink, their “Toritos”- a large pitcher of fresh fruit agua fresca and silver tequila. Yummy!
