South Dade encompasses a wide swath of Miami and for that reason, the cuisine you’ll find there is equally diverse. Indian, Middle Eastern, Cuban, Spanish, you’ll find all of these flavors and more when you visit South Dade. Read on for some of the very best restaurants in this area.

Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant

A favorite South Dade restaurant since it opened in 2007, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar marries the chef’s Miami Cuban heritage with her passion for farm-to-table cooking gleaned from an apprenticeship in Napa Valley early in her career. Her specialties include corvina prepared with Sicilian pistachio and truffle butter, New Zealand rack of lamb demi-glace and Niman Ranch pork tenderloin with chimichurri and au jus. Her extensive wine list highlights California estates including Duckhorn, Newton and Coppola. 11510 SW 147th Ave., Miami, FL 33196

Ghee Indian Kitchen

A welcomed newcomer to the South Dade dining landscape, Ghee Indian Kitchen is the brainchild of chef Niven Patel—and it’s become an instant hit. Sourcing produce from the restaurant-owned farm dubbed Rancho Patel and working with local fisherman, the menu changes constantly to reflect the freshest ingredients. A sophisticated take on Indian cuisine, menu highlights include crispy cauliflower, chicken tikka masala with heirloom tomatoes and charred ribs with cranberry chutney. A great way to enjoy a meal here is with the three-course, family-style chef’s tasting menu. 8965 SW 72nd Pl., Miami, FL 33156

Pincho Factory

A creative pincho bar and grill boasting an award-winning burger, Pincho Factory was dreamt up by Miami local Nedal Ahmad. Serving seriously hearty comfort food, Pincho Factory sets itself apart by using quality ingredients made fresh to order. Pinchos means kebab in Spanish and you can choose from chicken, steak or shrimp here in a variety of preparations, including rice bowls and wraps. But it’s hard to resist their crazy-creative burgers. Take the toston burger, for example: fried plantains serve as the bun with a beef patty, jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and a homemade cilantro sauce. The fast-casual restaurant also serves hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and a variety of fries and tater tots. 12590 SW 88th St., Miami, Fl 33186

Redlander Restaurant at Schnebly Redlands Winery

The famed Schnebly Redlands Winery, which produces wine and beer made from the subtropical fruits of the Redlands, is also home to Redlander Restaurant. With an emphasis on local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, the farm has never been so close to the table! Think, smoky guava ribs, catch of the day made to order, seared ahi tuna and lobster bisque. Pair this with an avocado wine or a coconut ale along with the subtropical farm atmosphere and you’ve got yourself a meal in paradise. 30205 SW 217th Ave., Homestead, FL 33030

The Tea Room

Situated in the heart of the historic railroad village Cauley Square, which was established in 1903 to accommodate Flagler’s railroad, The Tea Room is a delightful daytime restaurant. They specialize in traditional English tea service inside a charming cottage with a variety of ornately decorated rooms. A full breakfast and lunch menu is served here, but the real draw is the tea service, which requires a 24-hour advance reservation. Afternoon tea comes with a pot of tea and a three-tiered tower of finger sandwiches, deviled eggs, scones and sweets. It’s a fun experience in a one-of-a-kind South Dade setting. 12310 SW 224th St., Miami, FL 33170
