Plant Food + Wine
Matthew Kenney’s Wynwood eatery is a mecca for beautifully designed, plant-based dishes. The best part? The entire menu is gluten-free. Try the zucchini lasagna drizzled with spicy marinara and basil-mint pesto.
105 NE 24th St.,
Wynwood; 305-814-5365 or plantlab.com
Longtime gluten abstainers know that Mexican food is usually a friendly option, and this contemporary spot is no exception. Swap standard tacos for carnitas topped with pineapple and a spicy cucumber cocktail made with 100 percent agave and no gluten.
1111 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach; 305-695-1005 or rosamexicano.com
There’s a reason this place always has lines out the door at lunchtime: delicious, creatively prepared veggies and proteins that hit the spot. GF dining is made easy here thanks to the small asterisks next to menu items. We’ll take an order of the tuna Nicoise, please.
1855 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-8448 or iceboxcafe.com
This petite, bright-pink shop has been turning out gluten-free treats since before it was cool. There are dozens of cupcake flavors—like guava, key lime and banana chocolate chip—that could easily go head-to-head with their gluten-full counterparts and still end up on top.
2322 NE Second Ave., Miami; 786-268-9790 or bunniecakes.com
Whoa, the option to make any pizza gluten-free? We’ll start with the pesto and homemade ricotta…and then the rock shrimp with manchego...and the kale (just to be healthy).
2996 McFarlane Rd., Coconut Grove; 786-655-0121 or harryspizzeria.com
If the name threatens to ruin your appetite, the charming atmosphere will win you over immediately. Plus, it’s hard to care about anything else when the gluten-free avo, kale and roasted garlic tostada was seriously all you needed.
232 Fifth St., Miami Beach; 305-763-8548 or dirteatclean.com
Swap a salad or a poke bowl for the best gluten-free pancakes in the city. The crispy stack with an extra-doughy center is doused with lots of sweet stuff. Think blueberry and pineapple compote, whipped coconut-cashew butter, maple syrup and sliced bananas.
1834 Bay Rd., Miami Beach; 786-453-2488 or paradigmkitchen.com
