Where to Eat: Miami

Over the past two years, I have become a frequent visitor to Miami and have even considered moving there. Escaping the volatile Virginia weather to warm, sunny days and being so close to the beach was a big factor that continues to draw me there. Another gigantic part of my affinity for Miami is the FOOD.

In this post, I will share some of my favorite places (in no particular ranking order) to eat in Miami as well as what I typically order. Fair warning: you may get hungry reading this!


Planta, South Beach

850 Commerce Street, Miami Beach, FL 33139

If you ever crave sushi, Planta is THE place to go in Miami. Planta, a restaurant that has several locations in Florida, New York, Maryland, and Toronto, is a fully plant-based restaurant that offers sushi, burgers, wraps, salads, pizza, as well as brunch and an array of delicious house cocktails.

Every single time I go to Miami, I have to get the spicy watermelon "tuna" roll. I know, watermelon is a bit left field; however, as a person who deeply dislikes the fruit, the sushi roll tastes nothing like it. Instead, it perfectly mocks the texture and color of raw tuna. With their homemade sauce, wasabi, and soy sauce, every bite is the perfect bite.

I visited recently in late February and they offered an updated brunch menu since the last time I tried it. The french toast was so warm and had the perfect combination of a crunchy outside and soft inside. My suggestion would be to save some room before visiting to ensure you can savor and enjoy every last bit.

Full Bloom Vegan

1670 James Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Aah, Full Bloom... nestled into an easy-to-miss spot in South Beach, it's a great place for an intimate dinner. If you're like me and love to chow down even in the presence of a date (luckily my husband likes a woman who can feast), the bacon cheeseburger is the go-to. It features a Beyond Meat patty, cheese, pickles, (we add jalapeños), and tempeh bacon all on a delicious pretzel bun. Although I believe they've changed their side from small roasted potatoes to yuca fries, the meal is more than enough and definitely worth it.

If I have the room– and that's a big if– I go for the tiramisu for dessert. It's just the right amount of sweet and espresso flavor, plus the presentation is worthy of sharing to your socials.

Lido Bayside Grill

40 Island Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139

My first visit to Lido Bayside Grill was during my most recent trip to Miami and will be a stop every visit for brunch.

When approaching the restaurant in our Lyft, my husband and I were confused on where it was as it is located inside of a hotel. As you enter the hotel, you walk straight through to the back where you continue down a path framed by beautiful, lush flora until you reach the gateway to the bayside eatery.

Immediately, the view will captivate you. We were fortunate to be seated right by the water due to our reservation and as we ate, we enjoyed watching boats, jet skiers, and paddle boats across the bay.

Although they don't have many vegan options, the vegan scramble, which comes with veggie sausage, mixed greens, and home fries, was superb.

If you're looking for a place with a healthy, tasty brunch and a variety of spots to take Insta-worthy pictures, Lido Bayside Grill is the spot to enjoy a beautiful morning.

I hope some of you enjoy my suggestions as much as I do. Also, don't hesitate to share any of your own suggestions!
