The 6 Best Lincoln Road Restaurants For Dining in Miami
You know the drill: You’ve got visitors coming into town and you’ve been tasked with picking a restaurant near Lincoln Road. Don’t stress—we’ve found a host of delicious dining destinations in Miami Beach’s most touristy areas. They’re affordable, tasty and even relaxing. Here are our six favorites that may even tempt you to return without your mother-in-law from NYC in tow.
1. Chotto Matte
Japanese and Peruvian cuisine unite at Chotto Matte. The London-based restaurant offers a slate of unique Nikkei cuisine, blending traditional sushi plates with Peruvian ceviche and grilled items. Even better, this restaurant offers an atmosphere like no other, with an expansive, tropical-inspired dining room, fancy cocktails and a bustling late-night environment.
1664 Lenox Ave., Miami Beach; 305-690-0743 or chotto-matte.com
2. The Lincoln Eatery
When everyone you’re with wants something a little different, that’s your cue to head to Lincoln Eatery. The recently opened food hall, which is the first of its kind for Lincoln Road, features more than a dozen different food and beverage stalls. (Burgers! Thai! Nitrogen ice cream!) With a bright and airy interior as well as outdoor seating, it’s a great spot for a morning bite or a full-fledged food tour at night.
723 N. Lincoln Lane, Miami Beach; 305-695-8700 or thelincolneatery.com
3. Habitat Miami Beach
Habitat sits at the heart of South Beach and also happens to have one of the most beautiful rooftops in town, so we’re game for any excuse to linger here. Casual eats like croquetas de jamón and a grouper sandwich rule the daytime menu, but come dinnertime, it’s all about sophisticated platings of octopus a la plancha and Skuna Bay salmon. And weekend brunch? We’ll take the French toast sticks and an avocado tartine topped with Manchego and pumpkin romesco.
2341 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-604-6700 or 1hotels.com
This well-known “secret” above Lincoln Road serves arguably some of the best Asian-fusion food in town. Take in the panoramic views of South Beach while dining on seared tuna with caramelized onions and avocado, king crab risotto or Korean-marinated short ribs. Pair your plate with a side of tricolor quinoa. It’s as tasty as it is photo-worthy.

5. Meat Market
Think of Meat Market as a more glamorous version of your dad’s favorite steakhouse. Whether you decide on a filet mignon or a Wagyu tomahawk rib eye, you can be sure it will be cooked to perfection and served with scrumptious sides and a great glass of red.
915 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach; 305-532-0088 or meatmarket.net
6. LT Steak & Seafood
The steaks and seafood are always on point, but it’s the grilled Alaskan king crab poached in yuzu butter that has us craving this spot on the reg. Oh, and the short rib bao buns. And the hand-cut Parmesan fries drizzled in truffle aioli.
