new to university of miami
i am taking my daughter to interviews at the university of miami and was wondering what are some good eats nearby. We're from LA--so even popular Florida fast food chains would be great. Thanks for you help!!!!
We're going to be visiting the University of Miami in April with my daughter also. We're from DC. I hope someone answers this thread!
Try Titanic, its a little microbrew but with pretty darn good food. Its a few minutes away from the UM, don't ask me the addy though, i was just passing through.
Hi, I'm a student and tour guide at UM. I actually get this question a lot, so here are some of the places I recommend. There are tons of great places on the Beach, but for a more typical UM experience check out some of these restaurants in Sunset, Coconut Grove, and Coral Gables.
Moon Thai and Sushi, right across the street from UM. I more or less live there--the sushi is so-so but they have amazing curries.
The Rat is the on-campus bar and grill--basic burgers and sandwiches, but check it out because it's a big student hang out and a fun place to eat.
Blu Pizzera is at Sunset, about 5 minutes from UM and they have good Italian food and pizzas.
Deli Lane in Sunset also has a great Sunday brunch if you are there over the weekend.
Coconut Grove is great for eating and shopping; from UM take US-1 to Grand ave. and hang a right. Check out Green Street for outdoor seating and all around good food; Moe's or Scotty's Landing on Bayshore have a great outdoor atmosphere by the marina but the food is mediocre. There are also a bunch of nice French restaurants in the Grove.
Downtown Coral Gables has some great places; from UM take Ponce to a L on LeJeune and continue on to Miracle Mile. There's a great salad place for lunch called Giardino Salads on Giralda Ave.
Have fun and good luck on your visit!
