BONDST Lounge

A sushi restaurant isn’t hard to find nowadays. Raw fish for diner has never before been so popular. A good sushi place however… that’s another story. When in Miami and craving tuna rolls or sesame crusted shrimp BONDST Lounge is your best bet.

Cecconi’s

Inspired by the original Cecconi’s in London, Cecconi’s Miami Beach opened its doors in 2010 in the members only Soho Beach House. This classical Italian restaurant offers Venetian inspired food and is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Besides delicious dishes such as beef tartare with pecorino, quail egg and black truffle, Cecconi’s offers an amazing setting in the hotel’s ground floor courtyard. The 150-seats dining area is outside, but the carefully chosen furniture and the pergolas with overhanging greenery make it feel protected and cosy.  The trees are wrapped in white lights that create a magical effect when the sun sets. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful restaurants in Miami to dine al fresco, just steps away from the ocean. Even though the interior and food make you feel like you’re in Europe, a little people watching will take you right back to SoBe. A colorful crowd of attractive models, surgically enhanced has-beens and a celebrity or two seem to love Cecconi’s too.

Indomania

OK, we’ve heard of all the coolest venues in Miami. The places where the celebrities have lunch, restaurants where the food is fresh, vibrant and delicious and of course the clubs where the music is spot on all night long. We love it. But! The one and only spot on Miami Beach where to find actual good Indonesian food is Indomania. People from all over the world come to this restaurant to enjoy real Indonesian food. Go with a group and let them bring you several appetizers and rijsttafels to try a great mix of flavors. An unforgettable experience ensured! And it’s a nice getaway from all the typical Miami food (a cultural fusion of Latin-American, African and European traditions). For all you Dutchies: it’s nice to know that the owner of this restaurant is Dutch. (He’s that friendly old guy that walks around and chitchats with everybody.)
