Update: In a press conference, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez announced today, September 9,  that the countywide curfew will be extended to 11 p.m. starting Monday, Sept. 14.

As of August 31, Miami-Dade County restaurants may open their indoor dining rooms at 50 percent of their approved occupancy. Restrictions are in place: table seating, for example, is limited to parties of six or fewer; patrons must adhere to social-distancing protocols; and masks must be worn while moving around the restaurant (and until water is placed on the table when first seated).

Bar seating remains prohibited, and countywide 10 p.m. nightly curfew is still in effect.

Since early July, restaurants in Miami-Dade County had been limited to takeout, delivery, and outdoor dining. Most restaurants continue to offer those options, even as many are reopening their dining rooms.

Those who aren't of a mind to venture out should check out New Times' list of restaurants that offer delivery and contactless pickup.

Below, in alphabetical order, is a running list of restaurants in Miami-Dade that are open and offering on-premises dining of any kind. This list will be updated on an ongoing basis.

Because days and hours of operation are subject to change, we have opted not to list that information, nor other details such as reservation requirements. It's always best to call before you head out.

If you know of a Miami-Dade County restaurant that should be added to this list, email [email protected].
