Ideas in eating
Need dining inspiration the weekend? Don’t fret — Eater Miami is here to help.
Each week, the site’s editors and contributors select a new group of restaurants and suggest them for various meals throughout the weekend. These picks range from brand new restaurants to old, reliable favorites.
Some pair well with fun weekend activities; others reflect the recent news of the day or features on the site this week. Diners probably won’t get to all five in one weekend, but that’s what next weekend is for, right?

Friday Happy Hour: Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink

Saturday Dinner: Sushi Donut at NaiYaRa
After you get over the kitsch factor of what you’re about to dine one, order up an off menu sushi doughnut at Thai go-to, NaiYaRa (1854 Bay Road). Yes, it’s essentially a sushi roll formed into a doughnut shape — complete with unlimited fish toppings — but hey, it’ll look damn good on your Instagram feed. -OF
Saturday Late Night: Burger at Sweet Liberty
One of the best burgers on South Beach happens to be available until 5 a.m. every night at Sweet Liberty (237 20th Street). Big enough to split with a group and served with a sea of rosemary fries, it’ll soak up any of the night’s transgressions. -OF
Sunday Lunch: Tacos at Taquiza
The perfect pre- or post-beach dining stop, order one of Taquiza’s (1506 Collins Ave) creative tacos like the lengua or chapulines variety with a side of the can’t miss totopos and guac. -OF
