Whitewaller Miami 2019: Where to Eat and Sip in the Miami Design District

No contributor

In between shopping and art exhibitions, stop in for a drink or a bite to eat at some of these top restaurants in the Miami Design District.

Estefan Kitchen Design District
Last year, the internationally known couple Emilio and Gloria Estefan opened the fine-dining Cuban restaurant Estefan Kitchen with longtime friend Craig Robins, CEO and president of DACRA. In Palm Court, visitors can find bold flavors in native cuisine, presentations of live music, performing servers and bartenders, and an interior reminiscent of Cuba in the 1950s.

Whitewaller recommends: Visiting the restaurant’s express café.

OTL Design District
Sleek in design with a welcoming nature, OTL is a community hangout offering coffee, breakfast, drinks, sandwiches, pastries, and more. The two-story, 7,000-square-foot space also features an upstairs creative area that welcomes wellness classes and designer pop-ups.

Whitewaller recommends: Stopping by for coffee and avocado toast.

Mrs. Mandolin Design District
In 2009, Anastasia Koutsioukis opened her first restaurant in Miami, Mandolin Aegean Bistro, with her husband. This year, she celebrates a new opening—Mrs. Mandolin, a lifestyle shop–meets–café that offers its visitors products and treats inspired by global markets and the Mediterranean way of life.

Whitewaller recommends: Enjoying a cappuccino with friends.

Swan Design District
In 2018, hospitality entrepreneur David Grutman, in partnership with Pharrell Williams, opened Swan in the Design District. Designed by Ken Fulk, the hot spot welcomes visitors to a globally influenced menu that’s focused on clean eating, with local ingredients. In addition, the restaurant features banquette seating and a relaxing outdoor garden—the perfect balance of cool and calm.

Whitewaller recommends: Visiting the cocktail lounge upstairs, Bar Bevy.

St. Roch Market Design District
In 2015, Will Donaldson and Barre Tanguis opened the original St. Roch Market in New Orleans. After much success, this year the duo brought the same mission to Miami—to harness local talent, including chefs and shop owners, for a sharing of food, conversation, and culture. With vendors like Coop, Dal Plin, Itamae, The Mayhaw, and Elysian Seafood, St. Roch Market also welcomes its visitors to a hub of self-expressed menus and entrepreneurial-focused platforms.
