Miami New Times’ Best of Miami 2020 Showcases Nearly 100 Food and Drink Winners
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
Miami, along with the rest of the world, was thrown a curveball in 2020.
We’ve changed the way we work (from home), communicate (via zoom), and shop (online). Fashionable people now adjust their sweats with their masks, and we bump our elbows instead of hugging each other.
We also found that there are many wonderful things to live here that we take for granted. At the top of this list: restaurants and bars – the places where we feed ourselves physically and mentally.
This week as New Times’ Best of Miami 2020 finally hits the streets (six months late), we’re sharing hundreds of our tips for the best shops, attractions, and the best arts and entertainment our city has to offer.
In the food and drink category alone, you will find more than 80 different categories in which our favorite suppliers of all kinds of delicacies are praised.
More than any other year, items like Best Hot Dog (Dogma) and Best Chef (Karla Hoyos) are evidence of the people and institutions that make up the fabric of our community. Also the best restaurant in Aventura (Ornos Estatorio), the best romantic restaurant (Peacock Garden Cafe) and so on.
You can also take a look at the results of our reader survey, in which you could vote for your favorite places in more than 100 different categories.
Please read on and discover some new favorite places to support in Miami. There has never been a better time to share your love for the locals.
