With a booming resort and cruise industry, and dozens of world-class chefs recreating the world’s culinary landscape in a lush, tropical paradise, Miami is one hot town.

Miami's Culinary Scene
Miami’s South Beach culinary scene combines Latin, Caribbean, South American and Asian influences with tropical local ingredients to create a fusion cuisine all its own. And it’s not the food alone that’s made Miami a mecca for food aficionados. With an Art Deco-inspired design flair that takes advantage of year-round outdoor dining, Miami restaurants are also world-famous for their chic, casually elegant ambiance.

This combustible mix has made South Beach a winter getaway for the rich and famous, including celebrity-owned hotspots: Gloria Estefan’s Lario’s on the Beach, Todd Oldham’s Wish at The Hotel, and Michael Caine’s South Beach Brasserie, as well as restaurants owned by JWU grads like Emeril’s at the Loews Hotel, and Michy's, owned by the husband-and-wife team of Michelle Berstein '94, '03 Hon. and David Martinez.
