The Ten Best New Restaurants in Miami of 2020 - So Far

It's safe to say that when the clock struck midnight on December 31, 2019, most of us — save for a few with crystal balls — would not have predicted that a global pandemic would throw the world into a financial and health crisis.

Though restaurants were ordered closed for months, many Miami chefs persevered. Some restaurateurs opened shortly before the pandemic hit, while other entrepreneurial spirits opened during the COVID-19 crisis.

Here, listed in alphabetical order, are the best restaurants that have opened in 2020 — so far.

Tur Kitchen 259 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables 786-483-8014 turkitchen.com

Chef Nelson J. Fernandez and his wife Ivanna opened Tur Kitchen in January. The 4,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor space includes an outdoor patio with seating for 50, and the pan-Mediterranean menu offers dishes prepared with fresh fish and seasonal fruits and vegetables. There's an extensive array of tartines, simple French open-faced sandwiches, and flatbreads baked in a stone oven and filled with braised lamb, cremini mushrooms, goat cheese, and curry oil ($15).
