This past November, Eater Miami awarded Le Sirenuse Design of the Year 2017, but there are so many jaw-dropping new restaurants that hit the city stage this year. Here’s a guide through this year’s new restaurant design highlights.

OTL Miami

Bright and airy with Miami appropriate shades of pink and turquoise with plenty of earthy elements, this Design District newcomer has become a favorite for a quick (and very Insta-grammable) spot to eat.

Sherwood’s Bistro & Bar

A newcomer from the co-founders of Morgans Restaurant, The Annex Wynwood and Acme Lounge, this Little River spot is housed in a historic bulding that has been completely renovated with themed art-filled rooms that are filled with antiques, large windows, and a massive outdoor patio and gathering space.

Kiki on the River

Housed on the Miami River, the aptly named Kiki on the River, features decor described as “where the Mediterranean meets the Miami River,” with a colorful space features ceiling to floor windows, leather chesterfield sofas, vintage lounge chairs, seashell chandeliers and Ikat patterned stools amongst other eclectic details.

Kiki on the River, 450 NW North River Drive, Miami. Take complete look around here.

Three Restaurant

One of the original Mango Gang members, Norman Van Aken, returned to his South Florida roots with the opening of Three Restaurant and No. 3 Social Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Wynwood and the colorful spot is just as eclectic as the cuisine one would find on its menu.

Stiltsville Fish Bar

Led by culinary duo Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth, along with Grove Bay Hospitality Group, this South Beach newcomer is inspired by McInnis’ childhood growing up on the waters of the Florida panhandle. The design is a slight nod to the sea like the brass purse hooks at the bar in shape of Poseidon and his trident, beer taps made from swordfish bills, shell chandeliers, wooden columns similar to those of the Stiltsville structures, and a color palette of greens, blues, beiges, and browns.
