With new luxury hotels occupying prime real estate on Surfside’s oceanfront, this neighborhood north of Miami Beach still manages to have a small town, retro appeal. Whether you’re clinking champagne glasses at Le Sirenuse at the Four Seasons Surfside or treating the family to homemade ice cream at Serendipity on Harding Avenue, you’ll find a wide variety of delectable dining options. These are the best places to eat in Surfside.

Le Sirenuse at Four Seasons Surfside

When Four Seasons Surfside opened in spring 2017 at the historic Surf Club, it was a game changer for this sleepy, seaside town. The club’s original ballroom was transformed into Le Sirenuse, the legendary Amalfi Coast restaurant by the Sersale family, with a lavish Champagne Bar, all finished in a palette of creamy limestone and marble with mossy green upholstered chairs, brass accents and the original dark wood vaulted ceiling. Specializing in seasonal Italian fare, it’s one of the most coveted reservations in Miami. 9101 Collins Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

Josh’s Deli

For a modern twist on the traditional Jewish delicatessen, grab a seat at the counter at Josh’s Deli. The hearty menu highlights in-house cured, roasted and smoked meats like the classic corned beef sandwich on rye with a pickle. You’ll find traditional dishes like matzo ball soup and latkes with apples and sour cream alongside more inventive options like the lobster “jewchacho” for breakfast with over easy eggs, avocado and cheese in a mole sauce. The menu is playful and changes regularly. 9517 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

26 Sushi & Tapas

Surfside is home to an impressive collection of kosher restaurants including 26 Sushi & Tapas. This chic dining room serves an impressive variety of tapas, specialty makis, sushi burritos and much more, all with a “LatAsian” twist. Regulars can’t get enough of the crunchy lettuce wraps with corvina tempura, mozzarella tequeños and the tuna sushi pizza with rocoto aioli. 9487 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

Araxi Burger

To sate your juicy burger cravings, look no further than Araxi Burger for a mile-long menu of burgers, as well as hotdogs, sandwiches and salads. Go for the namesake Araxi burger made with caramelized onions, garlic sautéed mushrooms and Swiss cheese, all in a casual, welcoming environment with red vinyl booths and brick walls. 9551 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

The Carrot

For a healthy organic restaurant with plenty of vegetarian, vegan and kosher options, The Carrot specializes in a wide variety of gourmet wraps, salads, stuffed sweet potatoes, pita melts and vegan soups, as well as fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies and coffee. For something unique, try the Fire wrap made with kale, sunflower sprouts, avocado, quinoa, grape tomatoes, alfalfa, bean sprouts, carrots, cucumber and your choice of protein. 9519 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

Serendipity

For a sweet treat, duck into Serendipity Creamery & Yogurt Café for made-from-scratch, small batch ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet with mouthwatering flavors like cookie dough, pistachio, pecan pie and salted caramel. Then take a stroll down bustling Harding Avenue and take in the sites. 9457 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

The Restaurant at Grand Beach Hotel

The ground floor restaurant at Grand Beach Hotel takes cues from international cuisines with dishes like chilled gazpacho with fennel and microgreens, ahi tuna mini tacos and Mediterranean branzino. Dine indoors in the chic whitewashed dining room near the lobby or outside overlooking the pool and ocean. After dinner, don’t miss the 12th story Sky Bar to take in the sunset with a cocktail in hand. 9449 Collins Ave., Surfside, FL 33154

Café Ragazzi

Surfside locals flock to Café Ragazzi on Harding Avenue for hearty bowls of pasta, a convivial atmosphere and comforting Italian trattoria environment. You’ll find classic dishes like spaghetti bolognese, fettucini alfredo and linguine in clams, along with chicken parmigiana and veal picatta. It’s a real crowd pleaser from start to finish—especially if you opt for the creamy tiramisu for dessert. 9500 Harding Ave., Surfside, FL 33154
