Produced by The Infatuation with
Miami has one of the richest Hispanic cultures in the entire world, and food is right at the heart of it. The blend of flavors from generations of immigrants make this city the cultural haven it is, and we’re proud to celebrate it. Because while we may never be able to settle the “which country makes the best empanada” debate, we’re happy to keep trying. During Hispanic Heritage Month and throughout the year, Caviar is proud to celebrate and support the diverse Latin merchants, Dashers, and customers who are the bedrock of Miami, making it as vibrant, delicious, and diverse as it is. Check out these Latin-owned restaurants available on Caviar.
Located in Little Haiti, Fiorito serves Argentinian food in a casual setting. Their churrasco is one of the best in Miami, but with options like pork confit and lamb pappardelle, it’s clear they don’t just focus on grilled meats. They’ve even got a wide selection of vegetarian options, which is unusual yet very welcome from an Argentinian restaurant.
While the ceviche at this Pinecrest spot is the star of the menu, there are so many other fresh Peruvian options that it’s impossible to go wrong. The chaufas and lomo saltado are standout main courses, and the tuna/salmon/maduros combo showcased in the tropical roll make it the perfect Caribbean sushi.
The menu at Doce Provisions features creative, locally sourced options like disco truffle fries and their famous butter burger. For the full Cuban experience, try their arroz imperial, which thankfully does not skimp on that layer of melted cheese.
While there are quite a few Peruvian restaurants popping up in Coral Gables, Divino Ceviche manages to stand out. It’s a great option when you’re ordering for a group and looking to try a few things, like their trio of causas or shots of leche de tigre, or the consistently fresh octopus and mussels.
Little Havana Bar & Grill
Little Havana Bar and Grill is actually located in Coral Springs, which is great news for those in Broward looking for Cuban food. The croquetas are perfectly crispy and the rabo encendido tastes homemade in the best way. The fluffy Cuban bread included with each meal doesn’t hurt either.
Osaka Nikkei in Brickell specializes in the Peruvian-Japanese hybrid that is Nikkei cuisine. Fans of tuna have a good amount of options, like the tataki, tartare, and osk ceviche, and the fish is top quality. Make sure to try one of the tiraditos, like the Perú with paper-thin white fish slices, avocado mousse, rocoto sauce, and crunchy sweet potato.
Aromas del Peru
With five locations across Miami, Aromas del Peru serves classic Peruvian dishes with modern twists, like gnocchi topped with huancaína sauce. Make sure not to skip dessert, since they’re serving up things like cuatro leches and suspiro limeño.
Bocas Grill Brickell
Brickell’s Bocas Grill shows off a mix of Latin American flavors that transport you straight to South America. Their sampler platters are a good way to try a little bit of everything, including their nine varieties of stuffed arepas. No Bocas Grill order is complete without one of their famous milkshakes, like the “Roller Coaster Oreo” which is topped with an entire ice cream churro sandwich.
This upscale downtown spot takes traditional Argentinian dishes like baked empanadas then stuffs them with things like prosciutto, mushrooms, and brie for a delicious twist on the classics. While they’ve got main courses like duck confit and butternut squash ravioli, their small plates are also great to share and pair with a bottle of Malbec.
This Downtown restaurant is the perfect place to order from when you’re with an indecisive group. The ceviche sampler platter gives you a chance to try all their combinations of fresh fish, tender octopus, and all the leche de tigre your heart desires. The traditional Peruvian dishes here are also solid, like the lomo saltado and the pescado a lo macho.
Bolivar Restaurant • Bar • Lounge
When you can’t decide between Colombian, Peruvian, or Venezuelan, Bolivar in Miami Beach is the way to go. The Make Your Own Picada platter is a fun way to try a few of the menu’s offerings, like the Colombian coconut rice, blood sausage, and tequeños. Don’t miss out on the fresh, traditional Latin American juices like maracuya and lulo.
