Share This Post

New Year’s Eve is in the top 3 of Western people’s favorite holidays. Why? Well, the reasons are obvious: you dress up, you get together with loved ones and have fun, you eat delicious food, and hopefully you get your crush’s kiss at midnight. Well, the last one is not always in your hands, but what you can definitely guarantee is the menu, which can be as explosive as the fireworks at 12. To help you with that, in this post we share our list of 3 best restaurants for New Year’s Eve in Miami. Shall we start the countdown?

3 best restaurants for New Year’s Eve in Miami: this is what we need in december 31

Before we get down to business and show you our 3 best restaurants for New Year’s Eve, we want to talk about the standards we took into account for the selection, and in general about what you should look closely at when you decide to choose a place to go to dinner on this special night.

  • About the food: For New Year’s Eve dinner, our recommendation is not to look for the usual. Try to choose a place with a really striking gastronomic proposal. And we are not necessarily talking about restaurants of maximum luxury or with Michelin stars, just allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone. Let it be a night to try what you’ve never tried before. Ah! And check their social media to see if they will have a special New Year’s Eve menu.
  • About the atmosphere: Look for a place with a festive atmosphere. December 31 is a date to celebrate a cycle that closes and another that opens, so book at a restaurant that gets into that vibe, of course, always being consistent with your musical and ambient preferences. Normally establishments publish on their digital channels what they will be offering special for that night (live music, dancing, DJ…) Take that into account. Also check that it is suitable for your group, for example, if you are going with children or older people, if you are going as a couple, if you need accessibility facilities…
  • About the service: This is vital. Check the restaurant reviews. Nobody wants to have a bad time on New Year’s Eve with attention that is not extremely meticulous. This is a night that must be perfect.
  • About the location: Since it will be a restaurant that you will leave in the early morning, it may be advisable that it is in your area or near home, so you do not have to drive for a long time or have difficulty getting a taxi. And not only for you, but for your companions. Check this before deciding.

Did someone say a striking gastronomic proposal? Well, here we are. At Chifa Du Kag we serve Chinese-Peruvian fusion cuisine, and you know well that in neither of those two cultures do we joke when we talk about good food.

We are heirs to an extensive tradition that mixes oriental cooking techniques with typically Peruvian ingredients, and believe us, no one is indifferent when it comes to chifa food. Try explosive dishes like chaufa rice (we have it in 7 presentations) or our noodles (in 9 presentations), lomo saltado or pollo tipakay. And for New Year’s Eve we usually present a special menu with surprises from our chef.

We have an incredible atmosphere, our restaurants are the best place to enjoy an informal dinner in Miami. And about the location, we have three hotspots in the city: Bird Road, Kendall Drive and Doral. We are the complete package!

  • Food: 5/5
  • Atmosphere: 5/5
  • Service: 5/5
  • Location: 5/5

2.- Serena

This place is crazy. We are talking about a terrace decorated in Mexican style, full of colors and with a festive atmosphere that will infect you. Here you will feel like a patio in Oaxaca or Coyoacán. The restaurant, of course, offers live music and a menu of drinks and cocktails that is a gem.

About the food, it is delicious, but don’t expect a wide variety of main courses. It is fundamentally Mexican food (Tacos, burritos…) and cafeteria dishes such as house sandwiches, salads, and other appetizers. Don’t take it the wrong way, EVERYTHING is delicious.

About the location, this may be both a strength and a weakness at the same time. It all depends on where you are. Serena is located in South Beach. You can book on their website.

  • Food: 4/5
  • Atmosphere: 5/5
  • Service: 5/5
  • Location: 4/5

3.- Lulu in the Grove I New American Cusine Restaurant

We close this 3 best restaurants for New Year’s Eve list with this hotspot located in Coconut Grove. They describe their menu as “contemporary food” with influences from many parts of the world, in an intimate and cozy atmosphere that, if you like quiet evenings, is perfect.

They also have an interesting selection of house cocktails. For New Year’s Eve, they usually offer a menu with chef’s specialties.

And something else you’ll love: puppies are welcome. We’re talking about a class A, pet-friendly place. Nice combination, right?

  • Food: 5/5
  • Atmosphere: 5/5
  • Service: 4/5
  • Location: 4/5
