There’s so much going on in Miami in July 2019, from the much awaited spa month,  Dionne Warwick in concert,  a mango festival, and major movie happenings in the Bahamas, to performances by international ballet stars, Miami Swim Week 2019 and more. Looking for something new to do in the Magic City? Try one of the events listed below. We love them—and we think you will, too!

Time Out Market Miami

At last count there were 14 food halls in South Florida, from Miami up to Palm Beach. Truth to tell, I haven’t been to all of them, but have been to the leading ones in Miami . That being said, judging by its pedigree (the sister of the wildly successful one in Lisbon) as well as the number of eateries and bars, variety of selections, and inviting ambiance, one of the best (if not the best) has to be Time Out Market Miami. It’s well worth going to check it out for breakfast or all day dining until 11 or Midnight (closed on Monday).

STK Miami

STK Miami is unlike any other top steakhouse in Miami. Of course there’s the prime Angus beef and a selection of primo seafood that you’d expect, but there’s much more. None of the traditional clubby steakhouse décor. Here there were a lot of people celebrating special occasions , not surprising given the “glam” ambiance, loungey music and delicious food, all of which come together to create what STK has called “vibe dining.”. By evening’s end, we were already plotting our return visit.

Phuc Yea, Fusion Vietnamese and Cajun

It’s increasingly difficult in Miami to find quality restaurants with  ambiance, very good food, good service, and solid value. An exception is the Edgewater/MIMO section from the high 50’s to 70’s on Biscayne Boulevard. There are a number of my favorites like Osteria Baiocco, Bar Meli, and O Munaciello. And now there’s a welcome addition to the list there – Phuc Yea, for fusion Vietnamese and Cajun cuisine. It’s an addition to a lot of  people’s list judging by its being almost full on a Wednesday night in May.

A Day in Overtown: Where to Visit, Eat, Stay,and Entertain

Places to visit, where to eat, where to stay, entertainment, and the annual not to be missed event:  here’s your guide for a day exploring Overtown, one of Miami’s most historic areas. There’s no better neighborhood to find authentic soul food or experience an amateur night showcase that’s modeled after the historic Apollo Theater’s long-running one in New York City. And rivaling Wynwood’s famous street murals are those of the late artist Purvis Young, born in Overtown. The building façades and architecture harken back to the early 1900s when black performers played, ate and stayed here. A new B & B, too, a bargain at rates starting at $100 a night.
