Ten minutes to South Beach and downtown Miami, the burgeoning Midtown/MiMo districts along Biscayne Boulevard are the biggest foodie frenzy in South Florida. We keep returning to the new, evergreen Sustain Miami for their biodynamic wines, triple carbon-filtered water and organic, free-range fried chicken. Locally sourced, of course. Sustain is doing big business with private events for 150, and groups love sharing the charcuterie.
Just blocks away on the bayfront, the 600-room Marriott Miami Biscayne Bay is being touted as “The Bridge to Everything Miami.” An easy bike ride to South Beach, it just completed a $31 million renovation this winter. Big selling points (besides everything being shiny): comfy/chic rooms with balconies, waterfront space for 200, price, killer views, and the “I want it all” locale.
