South Florida continues to establish itself as an exciting food destination with an ever-expanding selection of styles and cuisines. The annual South Beach Wine and Food Festival is certainly an indication of the passion people have for fine food here, but a visit to some of the newer establishments in the region will motivate you to return regularly.
For years, when anyone talked about food and Miami they generally meant South Beach. The resurgence of that neighborhood has been endlessly chronicled and it remains a fun, desirable destination. Recently, however, downtown Miami is quite rightfully getting a lot of attention. Culturally alive, with revamped hotels and new restaurants, downtown Miami is a hip, urban destination for the savvy traveler who wants more than just a typical beach vacation.
