Whether you’re a local, heading on vacation, or traveling to Miami for the world-famous Grand Prix race on May 8 (the Formula 1 Grand Prix race will be in Magic City for the very first time), there are some new restaurants you’re going to want to have on your radar. From New York style pizza, to a sushi bar with open back patio, here are the hot new spots to check out in Miami.

ZAZZY’S PIZZA

The popular N.Y.C. pizzeria and café has a new Wynwood location — and it’s not your average pizza parlor. In addition to pizza, salads, parms and desserts, Zazzy’s also features a plant-based menu including dairy-free mozzarella sticks and meatless meatballs for health-conscious diners.

Visit: 2525 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL; zazzys.com

WHITMAN’S

Another N.Y.C. import, Whitman’s brings elevated comfort food to South Beach. Get the Juicy Lucy, a beef short rib burger stuff with pimento cheese or the East Villi Cheese Steak, a riff on the Philadelphia classic. Bonus: There are veggie options for hungry herbivores.
