When in: Miami

It's known for sun, fun and fitness - but Miami has another ace up its sleeve. Its food and cocktail scene has developed into one of the major reasons to visit this vibrant city.

The Broken Shaker

The hip Freehand Miami hostel is also the home to Broken Shaker, a cozy backyard bar frequented by the cool crowd. Miami is famous for its mixology, and you should definitely try the handcrafted cocktails composed of herbs, spices and fresh fruits. The hotel's restaurant 27 is a great choice for brunch. The menu - featuring treats like shakshuka, bibimbap and lasagna - reflects the city's multicultural vibe.

Juvia

Housed on the rooftop of a Herzog & de Meuron-designed parking garage, Juvia boasts one of the most breathtaking views over Miami Beach. If possible, book a table outdoors at sunset. The food is a mix of French, Asian and Latin American, with dishes such as wagyu nigiri and Korean marinated short ribs. It's the perfect venue for a big birthday or anniversary, or whenever you feel like a fancier, pricier meal.

Bazaar Mar

For fans of Philippe Starck's extravagant design, this seafood restaurant is a dream. Paintings and sculptures depicting mythical sea creatures and sirens adorn the tile walls. On the menu, emphasis is on Miami and the Caribbean - think ceviche, scallops, seaweeds, oysters and whole fish prepared in a variety of ways. Don't miss the "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?" for dessert - shaved pineapple ice with condensed milk and fennel fronds served in a pineapple-shaped glass dish.

Dirt

In a city with an all-year-round bikini season, clean living is a natural part of life. Miami has an abundance of restaurants offering healthy, delicious food. The affordable farm-to-counter wellness bar Dirt is one of the most acclaimed. Head here for quinoa bowls with kale, beets and cashew cream, or a brekkie of sweet potato hash, turkey bacon and cold pressed juices.

Bianco Gelato

Just because it's ice cream, doesn't have to mean it's not healthy. Healthy-ish, at least. -Bianco Gelato makes Italian style ice cream using all natural, all kosher organic ingredients. No GMOs, no bad fats, no chemicals or artificial coloring at all. Their mangoes and strawberries come fresh from Florida, coconut and almond milk from certified crops and farms in the US, and the pistachios from Sicily.
