Best Of 2018

Best of Miami® 2018

Welcome to your guide to Miami’s best of almost everything. Now let’s roll out the red carpet! On these pages, you’ll discover the top romantic restaurant (Stiltsville Fish Bar in South Beach) and the number one inexpensive restaurant (Ono Poke in — where else? — Wynwood). You’ll learn that Otto Von Schirach has the best Instagram (What, it’s not mine?!, you’ll protest) and that the Gables Corset Shoppe has the coolest lingerie.

Indeed, you’ll discover the finest of more than 300 categories, according to New Times staff and a select group of freelancers.

You will also see how the public voted. This year, more than 9,000 ballots were cast online for Miami’s best. Some of these winners were predictable: Readers chose Zak the Baker as top bakery and Broken Shaker as the first bar of Miami Beach. Pleasant surprises were choices for best karaoke — Let’s Sang at Gramps — and best news anchor: Roxanne Vargas.

Though DJ Khaled is the one who made “We the best” his signature phrase, Miami New Times has provided a guide to what’s best for the past three decades.
