Tour Miami’s Culinary Scene with Acqualina

By Olivia Cuccaro

acqualina resort & spaBoundless beaches, energetic nightlife and dynamic art scene aside, Miami is a dining destination. Just minutes away in Sunny Isles Beach, Acqualina Resort & Spa has launched a collection of Acqua Experiences affording guests exclusive access to the city’s vibrant culinary culture.

Available only through the resort, Acqua Experiences now offers an array of food-centric itineraries led by expert Jennifer Agress. The resort has just launched three experiences with Agress — Top Chefs Tour, Miami’s Cuban Food and Miami Street Food — running approximately four hours each. Tours are limited to four guests at a time, ensuring an intimate and comprehensive experience for those who reserve. And, of course, every stop on the tour includes tastings of delicious Miami cuisine.

For the true gourmand, the Top Chefs Tour visits four of the highest-rated restaurants in Miami for a sampling of dishes by the region’s most decorated chefs. This tour comprises trips to Alter in Wynwood, KYU in Wynwood, Upland in South Beach and The Forge in Miami Beach.

Florida’s proximity to Cuba has had a major influence on the state (hello, Little Havana), allowing for the flavors and dishes of the country to permeate the Miami dining scene. Miami’s Cuban Food Tour encompasses authentic Cuban restaurants and fine dining, with visits to Islas Canarias in Miami, Versailles in Little Havana and Enriqueta’s Sandwich Shop in Wynwood. Music fans will appreciate a stop at Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s high-end establishment, Estefan Kitchen, in Miami Design District.

Finally, if you’ve done the fine dining scene and want to explore what else the city has to serve, the Miami Street Food Tour maps out the best spots for street fare. Try globally-inspired street food from El Palacio de los Jugos in Miami, Las Olas Cafe in South Beach, Taquiza in South Beach and Doggi’s in North Miami.

Acqualina Resort & Spa is located at 17875 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach, FL, 33160. Acqua Experiences will run through September 2018 and reservations must be made two weeks in advance. For more information, please visit
