Food Scene
Located in the northernmost reaches of MiMo, this Italian restaurant is tucked away a few blocks west of Biscayne Boulevard in a part of the neighborhood that feels very locals-only. This eatery features a concise selection of homemade pastas, as well as a handful of baked Italian dishes. The pizzas here, made in the Neapolitan style, have been drawing attention from locals since the place opened a few years ago. The pies stick pretty closely to tradition, and toppings are kept at a minimum so as not to weigh down the oven-fired creations. In addition to savory food items, the restaurant also offers desserts including a chocolate “salami,” as well as a wide selection of Italian coffee drinks

A longtime darling of Miami’s food trucks scene, this missus of grilled cheese finally has a permanent venue right on Biscayne Boulevard. One could easily miss the small storefront if not for the sandwich shop’s seductive logo beckoning from the side of the road like some of the neighborhood’s residents used to do just a few decades ago. Ms. Cheezious is famous for its more unusual melted cheese sandwiches that sometimes feature unexpected ingredients. Take the oh-so-Miami Croqueta Monsieur, which features Cuban-style ham croquettes, ham, cheese and béchamel. Those wondering if there could be a dessert version of a grilled cheese should try the S’mores Melt featuring roasted marshmallows, ch

The Vagabond Hotel can be seen as MiMo’s crowning glory, as well as the greatest example of this neighborhood’s revival. This example of the Miami Modern style has been restored to its original splendor, keeping the midcentury modern vibes very strong. The hotel’s kitchen keeps the spirit of hotel restaurants from the era, like Howard Johnson’s, while catering to modern conventions. Expect standard but well-executed contemporary classics like beet salad, braised short ribs, and duck breasts that feature small creative touches. Like the menu, the dining room is successfully designed to feel vintage yet contemporary.

This Italian restaurant offers solid renditions of many Italian classics, but its mozzarella bar is what sets it apart from other Italian joints in the area. This eatery offers four varieties of the mild, fresh cheese, including buffalo mozzarella and burrata, which are served with cherry tomatoes and caponata and can be paired with Italian cured meats like prosciutto and bresaola. Just make sure to leave room for the fresh pastas and panini, including delicate mushroom and ricotta ravioli topped with a porcini sauce.

Miami’s Venezuelan population has infused the city with so much of its culture and cuisine, that it is only a matter of time until the arepa becomes the city’s official food after Cuban sandwiches and ceviche. This casual eatery specializes in the mild corn cakes overstuffed with creatively named fillings like “sexy queen” (reina pepiada) and “domino.” Doggi’s also features other typical fast foods, which include green plantain sandwiches and Venezuelan-style hoagies. The cachapa – a sweet corn pancake stuffed with Venezuela’s version of fresh mozzarella – should not be missed here.

This restaurant features some of Miami’s best Japanese fare late into the night. Open until 5 a.m. every evening (or morning), Moshi Moshi is an ideal spot to enjoy traditional nigiri sushi almost whenever the mood strikes, as well as creative American-style rolls that can be as large as a Swiss roll. Sushi is not the only thing offered at this restaurant, however. Diners can sit in the dining room or tranquil back patio and enjoy anything from ramen to velvety Japanese-style curry, as well as noodles and a large array of small plates. Moshi Moshi’s selection of premium sakes is also quite renowned in Miami, making it a preferred venue for connoisseurs and neophytes, alike.

One of the few independent, old-school diners in Miami, this place is not only a neighborhood institution but also a Miami icon. Its fame has only grown since being featured in the Academy Award winning film, Moonlight. Despite its moment on the big screen, this eatery has not abandoned what has made it famous with locals and still serves up some of the best greasy spoon fare in the area. Its banana pancakes are a must-have, and its patty melts are made as if Jimmy’s Eastside Diner invented them. The best part is that the décor has not changed to fit in with trendiness that surrounds it, giving diners a visual glimpse into this neighborhood’s past.

Argentine restaurants are popular throughout Miami — and for good reason. Few people seem to know how to instinctively grill a piece of beef like an Argentine. The cuisine can sometimes be a predictable offering an array of steaks and pastas, which is why Lo de Lea stands out. Housed in a free-standing red building, this Argentine restaurant adds unique touches to typical fare. A steak may come with a side of bok choy or escarole, for instance, or a plate of ñoquis (the Argentine version of gnocchi) may include a sharp surprise of Asiago cheese in each potato dumpling. Even the sauces to accompany the restaurant’s selection of meats go beyond the pedestrian chimichurri with such creations as

Danny Serfer can now be seen as a member of Miami’s culinary royal court. But back in 2012 he took a gamble on a small lobby space in a MiMo motel that quickly became one of the cornerstones of this neighborhood. Five years later, Blue Collar is still known for its straightforward renditions on Northeastern American comfort food, with a few very Miami touches. The latkes here are legendary and there is always a rotating list of vegetarian entrees that never feel like an afterthought. And after five years, this tiny spot is still one of the most popular places for brunch on the weekends, which says a lot in Miami.

This restaurant flaunts a pedigree as being quite a big deal in Florence, Italy, where diners flocked to the eatery for its renditions of Neapolitan favorites. Now in MiMo, ‘O Munaciello continues its tradition of serving carefully crafted Southern Italian dishes. Its pizzas are made in a custom made oven shipped over from Naples, and you can get anything from a classic margherita to a more creative Muna Miami that features yellow cherry tomatoes, provola cheese, asparagus, and bacon. Those not in the mood for pizza can find a variety of regional homemade pasta and seafood dishes.

While many Miamians are saddened by the loss of Van Dyke Café on Lincoln Road, the shuttering of that Miami Beach icon made way for the opening of Café Roval. This new addition to Mark Soyka’s family of eateries is all about the ambiance, which is perhaps the most romantic in all of South Florida. The coral-walled building hides a lush garden in the back that is populated with candlelit tables. The menu features the same type of eclectic crowd pleasers that have made restaurants like News Café such icons – hearty entrees, fresh salads, and shareable appetizers – albeit with more Mediterranean touches that pay homage to Soyka’s Israeli roots.

This pizzeria has been a neighborhood favorite since it opened in 2001, as well as one of the early pioneers in Miami’s gourmet pizza scene. It has been considered one of the city’s best pizza places for years, and the chewy crust and robust sauce are proof of it. Besides the traditional pies, diners can enjoy Andiamo’s creations like the Genovese with sliced potatoes, pancetta, garlic, and Gorgonzola. Although the pizza here is definitely a draw, the ambiance is perhaps the most memorable feature. Housed in a historic mid-century auto shop, Andiamo is the perfect introduction to what MiMo is all about.

Drinks & Nightlife
Those bars in Mexican caves are pretty nifty, but given Miami’s relative lack of cenotes, getting to one usually involves a plane flight. Or a trip to Brickell, where the team behind Tucandela has decked itself out to look like a real-live Mexican cave bar, though it’s decidedly above the ground. Inside you’ll find the same top-notch collection of tequilas you’d find at Tucandela, as well as high-energy Latin music, lucha libres, and live mariachi bands.

Sightseeing
Free Though locals might think of it more as a crowded, elevated, rolling soup kitchen, taking the entire loop from Brickell up to the Arsht Center and back is a great way to see the city from above. And should the cay mysteriously stop for no reason as it does once in a while, you can cross “walking the Mover tracks” off your Miami bucket list.

Though some see it through the haze of a long Wynwood night, the street art here is one of the most impressive collections in the world, with blocks upon blocks of colorful provocative murals lining the streets. Walking around is like a free outdoor museum, that’s different every time you go. And because all that walking will leave you hungry, you'll need some good food and drink to keep you going.

Nowhere will you see the epicenter of Cuban culture like you will at Versailles Bakery in Little Havana. Is it the best Cuban food in Miami? No. Is it close to being a tourist trap? Maybe. But grabbing a Cafecito and pastelito at the bakery and watching the abuelitos talk about whatever it is old Cuban people talk about for hours at a bakery is not an experience you’re getting anywhere else.

Parks & Nature
The view from the grassy knoll at this park on the southern tip of Miami Beach is without question the best in the city. Grab an order of fried chicken to go from Joe’s Take Away, add a bottle of wine from Publix (and maybe a PubSub if you've never had one), and you’re watching the sunset over the Miami skyline with the ocean at your back for under $20.
