More than ten restaurants opened in Miami this past March, spanning from Kendall to Aventura and everywhere in between.

March brought about some of the most hyped-up openings this year so far, including the highly anticipated return of Kyu in Wynwood, the opening of Sereia in Coconut Grove by renowned Portuguese chef Henrique Sá Pessoa, Jarana in Aventura specializing in Peruvian cuisine, and popular French pastry chef Yann Couvreur's namesake café, Yann Couvreur Café in Wynwood.

In February, a whopping 18 restaurants, speakeasies, and bakery/cafés opened across Miami and Broward County. From Lucky Cat's highly anticipated Miami Beach opening and Hampton Social's frosé-filled debut in Brickell to the openings of popular New York Chinese restaurant RedFarm in Coconut Grove and New York's beloved bakery/café, Maman, opening in Wynwood, foodies have plenty of new spots to check out in April.
