We’d like to remind you that there are plenty of new restaurants in Miami Beach too.

Some are in hotels. One is as small as a lobby popup; others are vendors in a newly opened grocery store. Another is a big name from New York.

Here are some of the new restaurants that recently opened in Miami Beach.
