Lincoln Road Food Hop

By: Rebecca Charur

As the Miami restaurant scene continues to expand, foodies are flocking to bustling neighborhoods by the likes of (you guessed it) Wynwood. But, despite being plagued by tacky tees and tourists, South Beach continues to reign as a haven for all the sexy sips and big time bites we just can't get enough of. And, there's one road in particular that, regardless of its stereotype, keeps bringing the heat: Lincoln Road.

The reality is that Lincoln Road has been written off as a tourist trap. But I'm here to propose a new reality: Lincoln Road’s sleek aesthetics and cool, hidden gem restaurants have withstood the test of time, lending themselves to the 305's thriving culinary scene. 

Still, with eight blocks of shops and miles of sandy beaches, it's easy to get lost in the current of vacationers. So, to better curate the experience and help you maneuver the dining options, here are some of my favorite restaurants to hop around #onLincoln.

Juvia

Picture this: You're sipping craft cocktails on a rooftop overlooking Miami Beach as the sun sets. Take the elevator to Juvia on Lincoln Road’s 1100 block to uncover this hidden rooftop and this pic can become a reality.

Meat Market

The crème of the crop of fine dining on Lincoln Road, Meat Market is serving up classics from succulent ribs to the fresh tuna tartare. Carnivores come ravenous, feast like kings, and leave with an appetite for more.

Spris

With a food group as important as pizza, there’s no time or belly space to mess around. So, I put my trust in Lincoln Road’s classic pizza pie shop, Spris.

Mr. Bing

As the latest addition to the block, Mr. Bing is hidden in the coves of Lincoln right next to Books & Books. There an undiscovered oasis of innovative ice cream concoctions await to be eaten with a fork.
