Miami is ever-evolving. And though the summer is generally slow when it comes to restaurant openings, as the weather finally cools, the city's dining scene heats up. Here are five restaurants to look forward to.
BLT STEAK

BLT Steak Will Reopen September 6 in South Beach. BLT Steak, known to serve some of the best beef, seafood, and popovers in Miami, will reopen September 6 inside the new Iberostar Berkeley Hotel, previously the Berkeley Shore Hotel, in South Beach. The steakhouse, formerly located inside the Betsy Hotel, shuttered in May 2016 with no word if it would relocate or reopen. After the restaurant's closure, the space was transformed into LT Steak & Seafood, a similar surf-and-turf eatery with a greater focus on fish.

Award-Winning Venezuelan Chef Carlos Garcia to Open Obra Kitchen Table in Miami. Venezuelan chef Carlos Garcia announced he will open a much-anticipated outpost in Miami this fall. Garcia, whose elegant Caracas restaurant, Alto, has held a coveted spot on Latin America's World’s 50 Best Restaurants list since 2013, says his Brickell place, Obra Kitchen Table, will offer simpler, humbler fare.
Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis Preview Menu at Stiltsville Fish Bar in Sunset Harbour. In September, Top Chef alums Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis will open Stiltsville Fish Bar, an upscale seafood shack in Miami Beach's Sunset Harbour. The restaurant's rooftop deck will open in early 2018 in a project approved by the Miami Beach Planning Board. They haven't announced an exact opening date yet for the eatery at 1787 Purdy Ave., but an early look at Stiltsville's menu reveals a blend of comfort food made with high-quality and locally sourced produce, seafood, and meat.
