Aba Miami Invites You To Dine Alfresco

Your next shopping break at Bal Harbour Shops should include a meal at two-story stunner, Aba Miami where lighter fare is influenced by Israel, Lebanon, Turkey and Greece. Designed by Lettuce Entertain You, patrons will feel as if they’ve been dropped into an idyllic Mediterranean setting. The dining room is enveloped in natural woods with potted olive trees, while ceilings are fixed with original Parisian globe streetlamps and gold Moroccan lighting that cast a warm, welcoming glow. French-style windows and doors lead to a breezy terrace ideal for alfresco meals.

Fabel Miami Enchants Us With Its Fairytale Persona

Touting vibes of an upscale beach club in Tulum, Mexico, or Mykonos, Greece, Fabel Miami in the Wynwood Art District is a rooftop restaurant that enchants with its fairytale persona and Israeli- and Greek-inspired menu. The sprawling outdoor sanctuary, designed by architectural firm M-Rad, embraces a soothing neutral color palette offset with tropical plants and greenery. Dining spaces are dotted with custom wood furniture, an array of woven pendant lighting and gauzy white curtains, while lounge-worthy nooks beckon thanks to woven poufs and oversize pillows. Choose from three levels of terrace seating, private cabanas or the U-shaped travertine bar to begin or end the night.

Sofia Design District Delights With Its Pink Glamor

With so many joyful spaces imagined by Studio Munge, it’s difficult to choose where to dine at Sofia Design District. Italian cuisine, glamor and a pink palette reign supreme at this indoor-outdoor restaurant that draws inspiration from the city’s Art Deco history and its location in the Miami Design District. The playful outdoor garden showcases frilly rose-hued umbrellas, pink-lacquered pieces, teak furnishings and modernized peacock chairs, while the indoor dining room was conceived as an art dealer’s entertainment pad. “The fashion, the people and the art all converge here in a playfully dramatic experience where flamingo-pink and amethyst velvets are juxtaposed with milky-white glass chandeliers and mirrored surfaces,” says founder and design director of Studio Munge, Alessandro Munge. Standout features include the Art Deco-patterned marble flooring, paintings by Marco Grassi and Mr. Brainwash, and Barovier&Toso chandeliers of opaline and Murano glass.
