It’s easy to see why Vogue has crowned Wynwood as one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world. With impressive street art, hip galleries, unique boutique shopping, buzzing cafés, and a collection of some of the world’s best chefs, this place ticks all the boxes. When it comes to Wynwood restaurants, Miami’s best food is all at your fingertips.

But where do you get started? Right here! This is your complete guide to the best restaurant in Wynwood by cuisine and vibe.

Best Wynwood Restaurant with Outdoor Seating: Le Chick Miami

Anything but your typical fried chicken joint, Le Chick Miami is easily one of Wynwood’s best restaurants. They have one of the best happy hours in Miami, so be sure to stop by anytime Monday to Friday from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm for classic cocktails and popular picks like the truffled deviled eggs.

While this much-loved Wynwood restaurant is known for its chicken, we’re obsessed with their Royale with cheese. This dry-aged brisket with cheddar on brioche is hands-down one of the best burgers in Miami. For those looking for lighter fare, you’ll also find fresh-from-the-shores seafood.

Insider Tip: It is pronounced as “le chic.” Think more Parisian and less barnyard.

Best Caribbean Restaurant in Wynwood: Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen

Miami is home to some of the best Cuban and Haitian food in the US, so it’s a leap to declare anywhere as the best Caribbean restaurant in town—but we’re going for it! As much as we adore the grab-and-go ventanitas, sometimes you want to feel transported to the islands, and Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen does an outstanding at that.

For an upscale Caribbean dining experience, look to the best Jamaican restaurant in Wynwood. At Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen, you’ll be swept off to a buzzing Caribbean wonderland with live DJs, a hookah bar, and craft cocktails.

While this place is a perfect Wynwood nightlife spot, we love their brunch too. Try Jamaica’s national dish, ackee and saltfish, or go for a twist on an old classic with a Jamaican jerk omelet or jerk scrambled eggs.

Best Mexican Food in Wynwood: The Taco Stand

What’s more annoying than going to an overhyped restaurant with slow service and mediocre food and then having an inflated bill set in front of you? Sometimes you just want good old-fashioned street eats. For Mexican street food that never fails to impress, look to The Taco Stand.
