The Ultimate Miami & South Florida Kosher Restaurant Guide & Recommendations

As many families are preparing to head down to South Florida for Winter Vacation / Yeshiva Week, here’s a single post that you could save, share, and refer back to whilst on vacation.

Note: Nearly every restaurant listed here is under the kosher supervision of the MK (Miami Kosher) or ORB (Orthodox Rabbinical Board).

Last Winter we hit 17 kosher restaurants in a week and we had a whole range of experiences. Do not leave Florida without stopping by these kosher eateries:


26 Sushi & Tapas is easily one of the best kosher restaurants in all of Florida.

  1. Zak the Baker – head there for brunch or lunch. Expect a long but moving line, and possibly hard to find seating. Also expect the best breads, sandwiches, and baked goods you’ve ever had. Located in the Wynwood neighborhood of (downtown) Miami.
  2. 26 Sushi & Tapas – this Peruvian / Asian fusion dairy restaurant is home to some of the most inspired, inventive, and tasty dishes you will have in Florida. Doesn’t hurt that their wait staff is helpful, friendly, and genuinely excited about their menu offerings. Reservations recommended. Located in Surfside.
  3. Soho Asian Grill & Bar – this popular Aventura restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The service was also top notch. Located in Aventura.
  4. Fuego – recently moved to a new location in Aventura this year, this restaurant is a must for meat-lovers.
  5. Serendipity Yogurt Shoppe – an ice cream shoppe that serves all kinds of goodies. Great for the whole family. Located in Surfside.
  6. Mozart Café – a great spot for those who love brunch, not matter the time of day. Great breads, eggs, and coffees. Located in Sunny Isles.
  7. Tasty Beach Café – despite the limited hours and slow service during busy season, their brunch menu is vast and tasty. Located in Miami Beach.
  8. Hassid + Hipster – this is a bonus – a non-restaurant pop-up dining experience on January 18th & 28th only at a Downtown Miami rooftop.

RECOMMENDED BY OTHERS: We didn’t get a chance to check out any of the restaurants north of Aventura, so here are some other recos:

  1. Levy’s Kosher of Hollywood – we hear good things about the “Zalmyburger” and their babka. @DansDeals claims it is “the most underrated restaurant in South Florida”.  Located in Hollywood.
  2. Asia – an upscale Chinese & Japanese cuisine restaurant. Located in Boca Raton.
  3. Butcher Block Grill – offering a wide menu of burgers, steaks, tapas, and more, BBG has been pleasing many since they opened last year. Located in Boca Raton.



We just compiled a list of all your kosher options for Friday night dinner & Shabbat lunch in the Miami Beach area as well as further north in Surfside / Bal Harbour.
