Versailles Restaurant

No true “taste of Miami” would be complete without a visit to Little Havana’s iconic Versailles Restaurant. This cafeteria-style Cuban eatery has been an enduring part of the city’s culture for over 50 years. You’ll feel as if you’ve hopped on a flight to Havana when you bite into Versailles’ succulent lechon asado (roasted pork), savor cortadito coffees, and delight in flaky guava pastries. It’s the kind of no-frills, authentic ambiance that Miami thrives on. Whether you’re rolling in for a 3am snack (the 24/7 hours are part of its draw) or treating your crew to a big Cuban feast, Versailles will transport your tastebuds to another world.

Joe’s Stone Crab

Follow the suite of US presidents and celebs who’ve indulged in an extravagant Joe’s dinner — though you may want to dress up in your most casual, breezy South Beach attire to fit the laidback vibe. Once you’ve conquered those sweet and meaty claws, mop up the rest with an order of creamy hash browns or other signature side dishes. It’s Sunshine State decadence at its finest!
