Best Restaurants in Wynwood


Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink

Situated in the heart of the famous Design District, Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink has been a staple and pioneer in this area. Outside of the phenomenal hospitality, they serve some of the most delicious seasonal items. Whether you’re going to dinner, a happy hour, or brunch, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Negroni Bistro & Sushi Bar is located in Midtown Miami, just across the street from our coworking location Mindspace Wynwood. Perfect for an after work happy hour – it’s a quick walk. They serve many different specials, as well as host a live DJ on certain days.


Zak The Baker

A must have when visiting the Wynwood neighborhood is Zak The Baker! Kosher, fresh, and irresistible, all of their pastries and menu items are made with love. Whether you stop by on your way to Mindspace or go for lunch, I assure you that you’ll fall in love.

Beaker & Gray

As long as I can remember Beaker & Gray has been a fine dining gem in Wynwood. Located on the outskirts of Wynwood, they’ve been recognized as one of the best restaurants and craft cocktail bars in the neighborhood – and I couldn’t agree more. 



If you’re familiar with the New York or Washington DC restaurant scene, then you may have already heard of Pastis. This French restaurant has made its way to Miami, and opened in the heart of Wynwood. A great setting for a professional lunch or dinner, your guests will be thoroughly impressed to dine here.



Another great spot for professional lunches and dinners, Doya brings a refined Mediterranean flair to Wynwood. The dishes are meant to share and allow for an intimate dining experience. With a Michelen star and impeccable service, you’re in for a treat.


Wynwood Street Art and Galleries

It’s impossible to mention Wynwood without mentioning art, and especially street art!

Wynwood Craft Breweries

J. Wakefield Brewing

If you’re into beer and craft brew, the Wynwood neighborhood has some of the best in Miami! J. Wakefield Brewing is one of my favorite breweries for their sours and specialty brews. Each week you can find a new in-house made flavor available for purchase. We also love to keep some bottles in stock in the office for Mindspace members. 


Veza Sur and Wynwood Brewing Co.

Some other well known breweries are Veza Sur and Wynwood Brewing Company. These are larger and provide for a wonderful night-out. You can find tasty bites to pair with your beers, as well as some great music.


Wynwood Nightlife

I do not think it’s possible to mention Miami without nightlife. No matter where in the city you are located, there is always something to do. But if you’re looking for something close to Mindspace Wynwood, the following are some of my favorites.

On Monday nights Swan holds a lively dinner party featuring performances and a live DJ. Swan is located in the Miami Design District, so make sure you arrive dressed to impress.


Lagniappe House

Lagniappe House is an unassuming wine bar that offers a selection of wines from all over the world to be paired with their selection of cheeses and meats, creating a beautiful charcuterie spread. The staff is well informed on every wine and can help you choose the perfect pairings. I highly recommend you to arrive early, because seats are first come, first serve. Depending on the night, you might even get to enjoy a live band performance.


Dante’s HiFi

Co-founded by Major Lazer’s one and only Walshy Fire, Dante’s HiFi is Miami’s first and only vinyl bar. A concept popular in Japan since the 1950s, such a listening bar is something everyone must experience at least once. At Dante’s HiFi you can expect to experience an eclectic mix of genres with specialty cocktails.
