Paying homage to his love for Miami Vice, Tony Bourdain's Layover in Miami is full of hilarity as he takes in the South Beach Art Deco architecture scene and spots bikini clad roller bladers while cruising ...Go to Episode
Bahamian Pot Restaurant
"Run by 3 generations, this place opened in 1989. It’s a great stop if you’re craving island cuisine. One of the best meals is their breakfast of boiled fish and grits served with johnnycakes made of sweet buttery corn meal and milk batter."
1413 NW 54th St, Miami, FL 33142-3860
Chez Le Bebe
"Go Haitian with their fried pork shoulder, fried plantains and salad."
114 NE 54th St, Miami, FL 33137-2416
"El Palacio is literally a palace of juices and jumble of different stands all under one roof. Offerings include fried plantains, Cuban rice and beans, chicharones, roast pork sandwich, etc."
5721 W Flagler St, Miami, FL 33144
Food Truck Circle in Tropical Park
Tony checks out Miami’s vibrant and growing food truck scene. "The park offers every kind of mobile and delicious madness." Tony samples from Sakaya Truck and Grill Master Truck.
7900 Bird Rd, Miami, FL 33155
"Garcia’s is no flash, no pretense -- just simple wooden tables by the Miami River. There’s good fresh local fish, due to the fact that fishing boats dock right up to the restaurant to drop of their catch."
398 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128-1626
This eatery offers 21 different takes on the hot dog. Tony gets a "Colombian" -- cheese, onion, pink sauce (mayo and ketchup), house sauce, mustard and potato sticks. Tony also has the "Edgar Special."
6976 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33141
Mac's Club Deuce
Tony and Chris Garver go to happy hour at one of the last dive bars in South Beach. This bar is perfect for late afternoons or late nights. Mac's was also the first place Tony ever went to the first time he was in Miami.
222 14th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Michael’s is in the design district just north of downtown. Tony says it’s probably the best restaurant in Miami right now and has seriously amazing food. Tony and Michael eat deep fried pigs’ ears and deviled eggs.
130 NE 40th St, Miami, FL 33137
"This is a gastro pub offering short rib steak tartare and pork belly (among other things.) There is communal seating and a local crowd."
1418 20th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139-1412
"For slightly more tricked-out ambiance, this restaurant offers largely local and organic cuisine. Inside is a horshoe-shaped bar serving seafood stew and roasted lobster."
650 South Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33131
"A civilized alternative to Mac's Club Deuce, The Room offers hand-crafted beers and a great selection of wines. Their crowd’s generally laid-back and pretty mellow. It feels far away from the madness on a back street."
100 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Tony goes here for lunch. He describes it as a gloriously unchanged-by-time greasy spoon. Dating back to the 1930s, S&S features old-school communal seating around a horseshoe bar with stools. Tony orders meatloaf, grits, gravy, peas and an iced tea.
1757 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33132
Tony Also Recommends
Try "a cortadito or café con leche or cafecito (one-shot version) in Little Havana."
Little Havana, FL 33130
