• 15 restaurants in Miami, Orlando and Tampa earn MICHELIN Stars, including L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Miami with two MICHELIN Stars 
  • Selection also highlights 29 Bib Gourmands, plus two special awards 
  • ​118 restaurants, 35 different cuisine types in the selection 

The inaugural edition of the MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa has been revealed, with inspectors finding 14 One-MICHELIN-Star restaurants and a Two-MICHELIN-Star restaurant.  

“As you can see, Miami, Orlando and Tampa have very much to offer to international food and wine enthusiasts,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “These talented chefs and their committed teams create culinary experiences matched only by the amazing attractions of each city. This very first selection of the MICHELIN Guide in Florida highlights glittery Miami, storied Orlando and breathtaking Tampa, offering a unique blend of international cuisine and Florida flavors. Local foodies as well as travelers will enjoy exploring these mesmerizing and rich Florida culinary destinations.”  

“Michelin’s recognition of 34 Orlando restaurants, including four starred venues, seven Bib Gourmands, and 23 Recommended, confirms what we in the destination have known all along - that Orlando has an exceptional culinary community," said Casandra Matej, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. "Like so many industries in Orlando, our dining scene is fueled by creativity and ingenuity. This incredible news elevates Orlando’s entire culinary scene, and we congratulate the many Orlando restaurants recognized in this inaugural Florida selection by the MICHELIN Guide." 

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Miami, led by Director of Culinary Operations Alain Verzeroli, received two MICHELIN Stars. Here’s what the inspectors had to say about it: 

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Miami (French cuisine) 
The menu offers both tasting portions and large plates; but go with the seasonal prix fixe. The bread basket is a lovely opener, arriving in advance of such thrilling bites as a seared sea scallop with toasted spices. The Design District setting bears all the beloved hallmarks with its counter and open kitchen.  

Here are the One-MICHELIN-Star restaurants, with inspector notes from each (inspector comments in full on the MICHELIN Guide website and mobile app): 

Ariete (Miami, Contemporary cuisine) 
Chef Michael Beltran’s Coconut Grove mainstay is immediately welcoming with a menu that weaves together Cuban and French influences to dazzling effect. 

Boia De (Miami, Contemporary cuisine)  
A neon-pink exclamation mark that glows above the front door is impossible to miss. Surprising is certainly an apt descriptor for Chefs Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer’s distinctive and impressive menu.  

Cote Miami (Miami, Korean cuisine/steakhouse) 
Owner Simon Kim and his team know what they're doing in this highly stylized Korean steakhouse, which almost feels like a temple to beautifully marbled and aged beef, much of it on display in a nearby room. 

The Den at Sushi Azabu Miami (Miami Beach, Japanese cuisine/sushi) 
Tucked away in the Stanton South Beach hotel through Sushi Azabu’s dining room and behind a sliding door is this intimate temple to sushi. Fish flown in a few times a week is treated and dressed minimally, often with just a single brush of nikiri. 

Elcielo Miami (Miami, Colombian cuisine) 
The menu offers diners a taste of traditional Colombian cuisine presented in a modern and dramatic manner. Colombian-born Chef Juan Manuel Barrientos' culinary artistry has garnered international fame, with various locations, including Washington, D.C.  

Hiden (Miami, Japanese cuisine) 
This spot is indeed hidden in the thick of bustling Wynwood. Chef Shingo Akikuni sticks to tradition, sourcing most of his product from Japan — beautiful slabs of tuna, sweet botan ebi and generous portions of uni are highlights in a tasting menu that never feels stuffy or overly reverent. 

Le Jardinier Miami (Miami, French cuisine) 
Stylish from head to toe, this dining room is a celebration of the seasons. The menu is a study of vibrant tastes and smart compositions that pack big flavor minus the heaviness. 

Los Félix (Miami, Mexican cuisine)
This is cooking that sends guests on a gustatory trip — at the hands of servers who are armed with ample information about the provenance of each ingredient. Recent highlights have included hearty pork cheek carnitas with myriad salsas and snapper crudo topped with shavings of jicama and avocado aïoli. 

Stubborn Seed (Miami Beach, Contemporary cuisine) 
Stubborn Seed is sexy and sleek with its industrial chic décor and glass-fronted display kitchen. Chef Jeremy Ford brings the heat, and his ambitious and brashly creative cooking is best enjoyed by way of the tasting menu. 

The Surf Club Restaurant (Surfside, American cuisine) 
Located within the elegantly restored landmark, now in league with the Four Seasons, The Surf Club is a prime location for Thomas Keller's first Florida venture. Sauces are what this team does best, starting with the scallop crudo with buttermilk-basil dressing; followed by the brilliantly reimagined Maine lobster thermidor with sauce Américaine.  

Capa (Orlando, Steakhouse) 
At the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World; this steakhouse also flaunts a decidedly Spanish accent. Kick things off with ace tapas before indulging in a main dish, like flame-kissed ribeye with tamarind-ancho sauce. 

Soseki (Orlando, Fusion/sushi) 
This tiny operation with Chef Mike Collantes at the helm is an ideal illustration of a contemporary meal expressed by way of an omakase. A laser-like focus on local Florida produce results in a menu that changes monthly. 

Kadence (Orlando, Japanese cuisine/sushi) 
The omakase opens with hot dishes and cool sashimi. This is food that's free-spirited, yet manages to honor the classic methods. Pacing is on point in sashimi like hamachi and hirame. Nigiri, like snapper with lemon and sea salt, will have you yearning for more. 

Knife & Spoon (Orlando, Steakhouse) 
This iteration from Chef John Tesar inside the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, is the picture of plush. Care and skill are the hallmarks of this team, as they turn out contemporary steakhouse fare woven with seafood.  

Bib Gourmands 

The MICHELIN Guide inspectors found 29 restaurants worthy of the Bib Gourmand designation, which recognizes great food at a great value. These are restaurants where one can have two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for under $49. There were 19 in the Miami area, seven in the Orlando area and three in the Tampa area.
