Guide to Reserving Shabbat Meals in Florida: Miami Beach / Surfside / Sunny Isles

Spending a week or an extended weekend in the Miami Beach area is a pastime for many northerners fleeing the cold weather months and yet this question always arises: What are we doing for Friday night dinner this upcoming Shabbos?

Thankfully, due to Miami Beach’s vast amount of kosher options, you won’t go hungry.

Before going into the options, my main piece of advice is to make your reservations well in advance, especially during peak travel season like Yeshiva Week / Winter Break vacation, before and after Pesach, etc.

All of the dine in options here are prepaid and by reservation only, typically by phone. This list also includes places where you can pick up takeout or place pre-orders for Shabbos. Details below.

  • We had the great misfortune to eat at the Rare Bistro this past Shabbbat. Gory details already provided on the Trip Advisor page.

      • The price was very high, about $300 for a couple. But we assumed that for this price it will probably be wonderful. Not so. Before booking, we had inquired about vegetarian option, and they assured us they can supply a good vegetarian meal. On Friday night there was none in actuality. For the soup, chicken, the waiter offered to take the bowl back to the kitchen & have the chicken pieces removed…Finally he brought a very mediocre salad. For the main course, they simply doubled the amount of the 2 side dishes on my plate. And they were vile. The next day there was a vegetarian option: 4 huge slabs of boiled tofu. No sauce, no seasonsoning, just boiled tofu.
        My husband’s meat meals were not much better.
        The only wine included in the price was a sweet Concord. Horrid.
        Basically just cafeteria food, reminiscent of a nursing home.
        The manager half-heartedly offered to compensate us somehow but I would never go back under any circumstances.

  • Staying in Surfside..Anyone with experience on Kosh vs Backyard BBQ? Which is better/nicer?.
