Smorgasburg Miami

Miami has more than its share of food halls, but Smorgasburg is the most interesting, by far. The concept was born in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood (hence the portmanteau) in 2011 and debuted a branch in 2022 in Miami's own Williamsburg: Wynwood. Smorgasburg is part carnival midway, part food hall. What sets it apart is the selection of food. On any given Saturday (the only day Smorgasburg is open), you can start with freshly shucked oysters, scarf down steamed dumplings, chicken heart skewers, hot chicken sandwiches, and a lobster roll the size of a kitten, and top it all off with ice cream. There's something for everyone in your group, from picky kids to vegans to carnivores. Most of the vendors are up-and-coming restaurateurs who are using Smorgasburg as a leg up into the industry. So that ramen you slurp at a picnic table on Saturday might have been made by next year's James Beard nominee.
