The 2023 New Times' Best of Miami issue hits the streets in two short months, highlighting all the best reasons to live, work, and play in our ever-growing city.

Each year, our Best of Miami issue has a signature theme. This year, it's superheroes, in recognition of all the people who wake up each day to make this the greatest place on Earth to call home. Plus, being journalists, we have a soft spot for superheroes — after all, Superman worked in a newsroom.

Best of Miami celebrates our city, from its most wonderful restaurants to its top clubs, shops, and services, naming winners in more than 200 categories.

Right now, the writers at New Times are seeking the most delicious places to eat, the most sophisticated cocktails to imbibe, and the most interesting places to be entertained in Miami. We're searching high and low to find everything from the best hair salon to the most peaceful park.

We know our readers are as picky as we are when it comes to eating, shopping, and playing in Miami. That's why we're asking you to share your opinions in our Readers' Poll.

We want to know your favorite place to grab a beer, the pizza with the best cheese pull, the best place to shop for vinyl, and the tattoo artist that has you buzzing.

The annual Readers' Poll includes more than three dozen food- and drink-related categories (and dozens more categories for shops, sports, and arts and entertainment), so you can share all your favorites.

Visit to weigh in. The polls are open through June 10, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. You can vote once a day.

Winners will be announced on Thursday, June 22, when our Best of Miami issue hits the newsstands (and this very website).

New Times also invites you to celebrate the Best of Miami on Wednesday, June 28, at LoanDepot Park. There will be food from Miami favorites and plenty of drinks to toast our annual issue that recognizes the best city in the world. General admission tickets cost $35 and include entry to the party at 8:30 p.m. and unlimited bites and drinks. VIP tickets ($55) get you entry at 8 p.m. for an extra half hour of fun and include access to a special VIP lounge with exclusive drinks and food, including a private VIP bar.
