Sure, Hurricane Matthew is a serious threat to South Florida, and with Miami in and out of the dreaded cone, the best we can do is prepare as much as possible. But after gassing the car, getting water, and bringing in the potted plants, what's left to do? The answer, of course, is eat and drink.

Restaurants and bars do more than just nourish. They provide camaraderie in the face of adversity. Most important, they can prove to be vital to people who simply don't want to ride out the storm alone. 

Thankfully, a bunch of restaurants have vowed to stay open as long as they can. Some are equipped with generators. Some are offering to deliver pizza (and wine). Some are just a friendly port in a storm.  

However, you should call ahead to make sure no plans have changed. And if Hurricane Matthew veers toward Miami, do not put yourself in harm's way to meet your friends for drinks. 

That being said, here's a list of Miami restaurants that have announced they'll remain open during the storm. If you're a restaurant or bar owner and want to be added to this list, please email laine.doss@miaminewtimes.com or tweet @LaineDoss.
