2018 South Florida Kosher Restaurant Recommendations

For the last few years we’ve been posting lists of the best kosher restaurants in South Florida, from Miami through Boca. This list incorporates some of YeahThatsKosher’s favorite picks as well as some from the community.

[To be fair, there may be great kosher restaurants that we missed on this list. This is meant to be a guide for travelers.
Additionally, restaurants not found on this list should not be assumed to be bad. Many of them are good. This is merely our subjective take on the places we like.]

For general advice navigating the kosher South Florida region, there tends to be a few “kosher corridors” in South Florida where kosher restaurants and other shops (markets, bakeries, butchers, etc.) are clustered. These are:

  • Miami Beach – 41st Street
  • Surfside – Harding Ave  (between 94th & 96th Streest)
  • NMB – 163rd Street
  • Aventura – Biscayne Blvd. (between 186th & 193rd Streets); and at the Shoppes at Waterways
