Whether you’re staying in one of our awesome apartments or coming from another part of the city, hit SOBE with an empty stomach –there are so many amazing restaurants right by the seashore, you’ll have no choice but to check them out- and often. Here are a few of our top South Beach restaurants, each located close to the water so your meal is complimented by the terrific views of the waves.
Smith & Wollensky: If you’re just craving a big, juicy steak then this all-American eaterie is going to hit the spot. And if you’re not a lover of red meat? There’s also a good selection of seafood. Plan to eat outside on the patio so you can enjoy the magnificent views of the ocean as you take in the white linen cloth tables, a full wine selection, and waiters who are there to cater to your every demand.
Alba Seaside Italian Restaurant You’ll have to drive a little farther north on Collins Avenue for this one but the trip is worth it. Alba serves fresh, gourmet foods created by talented Chef Ralph Pagano. You’ll love the flavorful spin on the seafood at the restaurant, along with the authentic Italian-inspired dishes. Come with camera in hand, as wall-to-floor glass allows you to enjoy panoramic beach views.
Naked Taco: Set a little back from the main strip, this is where you want to be for happy hour – with a margarita in one hand and a pork belly taco in the other. Or a lobster taco. Or a lamb taco. Or a super-hot chicken taco. Listen, just come hungry – prices are affordable and the humble Mexican staple has been elevated to an art form.
Monty’s Raw Bar offers a beautiful view of the Miami Beach marina. There’s a raw open bar, beer and platters full of fresh seafood. Perfect if you prefer a more casual dining experiene. And while you’re waiting for you food – you can take a dip in the in-house pool!
