Best Of 2019

Best of Miami® 2019

Welcome to your guide to Miami’s best of almost everything. This year, we’ll fly through the air with the greatest of ease as we guide you through our picks for the city’s top waterfront restaurant (Malibu Farm in Miami Beach), the best brewery (Beat Culture in West Miami-Dade), and the exclusive, secret lounge you should know about (Ama at Kaido in the Design District).

Miami is crazier than Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ever considered possible. Consider, for instance, the best documentary, Screwball, which included a child star playing Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez. The Magic City even has its own bearded lady: the best drag performer, Queef Latina.

Indeed, turn the pages of this brilliant work of journalism and you’ll discover the finest in more than 250 categories, according to New Times staffers and a select group of contributors.

For more picks, step inside the big top to see how the public voted. This year, more than 5,000 ballots were cast online for Miami’s best. Readers said goodbye to the Electric Pickle by choosing it as the city’s best dance club and welcomed Dwyane Wade into retirement by voting him the best Heat player.

After you read through the winners, head to the Best of Miami party Thursday, June 20, 2019, from 8 to 11 p.m. in Jungle Plaza in the Miami Design District. Enjoy unlimited food sampling from Miami's top restaurants, sip specialty cocktails from the area's finest bars, and watch live art, all while vibing to the sounds of Virtuoso-Inc. Tickets are available via eventbrite.com.
