Miami's Top Three Dining Streets

Categories: Best of Miami

The question was posed to me in an email from some food television media type for an unspecified project:

What is the best restaurant street in Miami? Think in terms of diversity or history or kitchen talent -- whatever quality makes it interesting and worth eating one's way from one end of the street to the other.

I gave it quite a bit of thought and came up with three roads that I think are our best for dining. I list them after the jump, with my reasoning. But you might want to add your two cents to the issue. What street would you choose? And why?

This dish at Michy's is just one reason to come to this street.
3. Biscayne MiMo Corridor
Michelle Bernstein's Michy's. Kris Wessel's Red Light. The cool Blue Collar, the Greek Anise Waterfront Taverna, Dogma Grill for hot dogs, Moonchine Asian Bistro, Balans, Uva Restaurant & Lounge, the Who burger spot where Kingdom used to be... lots of talent, lots of diversity.

The Federal (amazing, just amazing), Namaste (awesome little new Indian place), Sabor a Peru, Europa (yes, the gas station! - best sandwiches, coffee and fantastic ambiance). Research!

I don't disagree with the 3, but there's no reason to dis Giralda in the Gables. Talavera, The Local, the new Peruvian place, La Dorada, Miss Saigon, Las Leñas, even the coffee place in the corner. Not bad.

Very rarely do people agree with you.  Why do you think there is constant requests for a new food reviewer to replace you?

I like these three choices.  

I'd move Biscayne MiMo to #1 though.   As Ed says, include the Soyka complex (that includes the fabulous Andiamos) and The Federal.   With those and the others you left off: La Cignale, Jimmys, the vegan restaurant and the new mozzarella bar, it's the winner.

Also, as Ed says NE 2nd Ave/NE 40th St is a technicality away from being on the list.

Of course we don't agree!  I'd put #2 and #3 ahead of Washington Ave.  And in the Biscayne Corridor I think it's OK to include The Federal and Soyka. I think NE 40th St. is just one restaurant away from making it on the list, though the 2 that it has are obviously worthy as destinations themselves..  I'm glad you at least didn't include Giralda in the Gables.  People still mention it as the restaurant row of the Gables but it needs an upgrade.
