Un des bonus quand on habite à New York, c’est aussi de visiter le reste des Etats-Unis. Même si je n’ai pas visité autant d’endroits que voulu, je suis récemment allée à Miami Beach pour un long weekend. A quelques heures d’avion de la Grande Pomme, c’est une des destinations plages les plus proches, et à faire sans aucun doute.

Voici quelques recommendations de bars et restaurants que nous avons préférés avec mon copain.

One of the perks of living in New York, is exploring the rest of the US. While I actually haven’t visited as many places as I wish I had, we recently went to Miami Beach for a long weekend. Just a couple hours flight away from the Big Apple, Miami is one of the closest beach destinations, and definitely a must do.

Here below are some recommendations of the bars and restaurants we liked the most with my boyfriend.

EAT

MANDOLIN AEGEAN BISTRO: great address close to the Design District. Go there for the sunny, vacation vibes and the freshest, most delicious greek food.

JOE’S STONE CRAB: a must-do. Plan at least 45 minutes wait, but you can wait and order some cocktails at the bar. It feels like this place was stuck in time back in the 50s, which is very refreshing, and pretty rare, especially for Miami Beach. Obviously order the stone crabs and a selection of seafood.

UPLAND: great option for dinner. Love the homemade lemonades and everything on the menu.

DRINK

BROKEN SHAKER AT FREEHAND MIAMI: good for a end of day drink by the pool (or for the whole afternoon). Pool + disco ball + cocktails = my type of holiday.

ONE HOTEL MIAMI: great for a fancy drink with a view on the roof.

EDITION HOTEL: great option for a cocktail by the pool or at the bar. By far my favorite hotel option, love the mid century modern decoration and less tacky atmosphere than the other hotels in South Beach.

SEE

VIZCAYA MUSEUM & GARDENS: if you like to add some culture to your beach vacation, definitely go visit the Villa and its gardens. National Historic Landmark, The Villa Vizcaya is a 1920s interpretation of an eighteenth-century Italian villa, in particular the country estates of the Veneto region of northern Italy.

WYNWOOD WALLS: definitely a must-do. Some of the most famous graffiti artists have painted those walls.
