Things to Do in Miami Weekend Guide

A Story By

It’s time to get your eat on! There are so many things to do in Miami, but we can all agree that Miami’s food scene is one of our favorite things about the Magic City. Whether you are looking for fresh seafood, authentic Cuban cooking, or 5-star meals from celebrity chefs, Miami’s food scene is home to so many flavors. 

Be sure to follow @stufftodoinmiami on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date on everything going on in Miami. If you are ready to read the top things to eat in Miami this weekend, dive into our newest weekend guide exploring a few gems in Miami’s expanding culinary scene!

1. Kush Miami

Featuring 18 taps, rare finds, craft beers, local food made from scratch, this Wynwood eatery is a must-visit after exploring the neighborhood’s urban graffiti scene. Reflecting the character of the street murals that line the neighborhood, Kush was opened with craftsmanship and art in mind. The inside of Kush is filled with works of art created by premiere local artists. 

While we cannot enjoy the inside of the restaurant at the moment, you can order their local craft beer selection featuring numerous Florida breweries and the homemade pub food online. Everything is locally sourced from Florida farms and they make everything from scratch every single day–including the key lime pie.

Their menu has something for everyone; Grilled Cheese con Sopa de Tomate, Kush Cubano, Chicken n Waffles, Grandpa Joe’s Pastrami Reuben, and the Florida Alligator Tacos are some of our favorites, but Kush is really known for serving some of Miami’s best burgers. Try the Johnny Utah, topped with hot pastrami, or the LoKal, a Florida grass-fed burger served with homemade honey mustard, using local honey, melted jack cheese, local tomatoes, sliced red onions, arugula, and Florida avocados.

🗓  Monday–Sunday | 12PM–9PM
📍 2003 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127

📷 House of Wings

2. House of Wings

Flats or drums? We can argue that another time…but there is no debate that House of Wings has some of the best chicken wings in the 305. Offering over 60 wing flavors, the hardest decision to make when you visit is which flavor you are going to try. Some of the more nontraditional flavor choices include Barack Obama, Golden Goblin, Citrus Island Breeze, South Beach, Jamaican Thai, and Hennessy Glaze. 

This colorful chicken joint also offers seafood, but it’s hard not to order chicken from a restaurant that is known as “the King of Poultry.” Head over to this historic Overtown eatery and try some wings for yourself!

🗓 Sunday–Thursday | 11AM–8PM
🗓Friday–Saturday | 11AM–9PM
📍 1039 NW 3rd Ave, Miami, FL 33136

3. Bulla Gastrobar

With locations in Doral and Coral Gables, Bulla Gastrobar is worth the visit. Inspired by Spain’s Tapas scene, Bulla Grastrobar’s small plates are meant to be shared between friends and family and paired with a bottle of Spanish wine. Start your meal with some meats and cheeses before feasting on their shareable plates including patatas bravas, croquetas de Jamon, and albondigas (veal and pork meatballs). If you are  ordering with a group to-go, try their family meals which are set to serve up to 5 people. 

Voted “Best Brunch in Miami” by the Miami New Times, Bulla is also a popular spot for Sunday Brunch. For only $27, their three-course prix-fixe menu features classic dishes such as Huevos Rancheros, Churro S’mores, and Avocado Toast. All of which pair perfectly with bottomless* mimosas & Bulla famous red or white sangrias.
