Miami Top 25 Restaurants: September 2015

We love you, Miami. But from an observational standpoint, it seems you are constantly playing with our emotions — consistent inconsistency. This rings true for the Magic City’s dining scene.

This month’s Top 25 rankings, pulled from September RSMI data, brings on three new restaurants (new to the list, at least) — Finka Table & Tap, La Mar by Gaston Acuri, and Mignonette — and welcomes back five restaurants that have dabbled on and off — SushiSamba, Macchialina, Zuma, Prime 112, and Red, The Steakhouse.

Which restaurant came in first? We’ll give you a hint: It’s made No. 1 status before but not since January 2014. Check out the full ranking below to find out who this month’s frontrunner is, and which other restaurants made the list!
