Savor Wynwood has authentic Afro-Caribbean vibes, the interior has this island feel and the service is great. Let me talk about the food: it's the best jollof rice and chicken I have ever had. The hookah is also clean and easy on the chest. Lastly, the music is catered to the African/Caribbean demographic they play mainly Afrobeats, hip hop, trap, and dancehall/reggae music.
As the tagline mentions COME FI DI FOOD, STAY FI DI VIBES! This is correct! I enjoy the jerk chicken and the amazing drinks. I also enjoy the reggae and the laid-back atmosphere.
Victory Restaurant & Lounge has delicious comfort foods and drinks. The wait staff treats you nicely and can answer any questions you have about the food. I also enjoy this spot for the hip hop and trap music they play. It's a great place to go for a birthday party, brunch, and just a night out in the city.
Get ready for the luxe experience at a #blackowned restaurant in Miami. The restaurant is right on the water with exceptional views. My food was tasty—the chicken and waffles were well-seasoned. They also offer hookah and fancy cocktails. The service was A+ they made sure to check on us throughout our dining experience which is always a nice touch.
Located in the historic Overtown District, Red Rooster is a restaurant with a 60s vibe mixed in with a modern tropical feeling. I loved all the decor on the walls especially the framed Green Book highlighting destinations in Miami. This restaurant is also owned by chef Marcus Samuelsson. The drinks and food were amazing. I enjoyed the cornbread, deviled eggs, and the fried chicken with the mac and cheese. Each item was flavorful and worthy of praise. Please visit—you will not be disappointed.
800° is owned by professional basketball players Dwayne Wade and Udonis Haslem. If you are looking for good quality American food, I recommend this restaurant. It’s located across the street from Aventura Mall. I had the wings and burger, each entree was flavorful and a good portion size. The staff makes sure to check on your throughout your dining experience.
Dutch Pot is an authentic quick-serve Jamaican restaurant with delicious jerk chicken, oxtails, and various Jamaican foods. The location has a drive-through and you can also order inside. This restaurant also makes natural juices and the staff is courteous and makes you feel welcomed.
The food here is delicious! They are known for their mac and cheese so it's a must-try when visiting. The customer service was really responsive and efficient, ordering was super easy, and our food got out on time. Highly recommend.
