|Beer for dogs? Can I get a woof?|
They're everywhere. Four-legged fur babies are out and about in Miami. From tiny Chihuahuas in pink Juicy sweatshirts to bulldogs on skateboards to poodles with tutus, every kind of dog in every manner of dress can be found in our city.
Though dogs are usually welcome at Miami's many patio restaurants, there are some places that go the extra mile to pamper your pup, with everything from special meals to poolside retreats.
Here's our list of the ten dog-friendliest restaurants in Miami.
10. GreenStreet Cafe's
patio attracts Grovites, tourists, and local businesspeople who flock to this iconic restaurant for an outdoor seat in the shade. Regulars are greeted by name regardless of whether they're human, furred, or feathered. We've seen it all during an average Sunday brunch, including a poodle with a dye job and a parrot celebrating its birthday. Clearly a great spot for your party animal to see and be seen.
(Biscayne Truck Triangle Roundup), though technically not a restaurant, makes our list of pet-friendly spots. Each Tuesday evening, about two dozen food trucks gather around a square block of green grass near the Johnson & Wales University campus on Biscayne Boulevard at NE 127th Street. With all those good smells coming from the trucks, lots of grass to lie on, and the cool evening breeze wafting in from the bay, it's everything a dog (or person, for that matter) could ask for. Bonus: No snooty waiters to scold Bootsy if she slurps water all over the floor or chooses to dine straight from the ground.
