Nerd Realty’s Top 4 Restaurants in the Greater Edgewater Area
- The Daily Creative Food Co. (http://www.thedailycreativefoodco.com/)
If you really appreciate creative sandwich and salad combinations then you have to check this place out. We personally recommend the 944 Turkey Sweetness on a croissant (turkey breast, cranberry chutney, herbs mayo, Swiss, caramelized onions, and lettuce).
- Morgans Restaurant (http://www.themorgansrestaurant.com/)
Morgan’s is like having your own personal chef making some food for you! Most of the food is all locally sourced and all-natural. All of the food is made from scratch. Hands down our recommended dish is the Chicken and Waffle!
- Joey’s (http://www.joeyswynwood.com/)
Miami was never known for their pizza but Joey’s makes a strong case for changing that notion. The pizza is really thin and doesn’t give you that heavy feeling afterwards. Try any of the pizzas. You can’t go wrong!
- Sakaya Kitchen (http://www.sakayakitchen.com/#about)
Sakaya is an Asian Fusion restaurant located in Midtown Miami. This is seriously considered culinary genius. Each bite creates a flavor explosion in your mouth! You have never tried anything like this before. We personally recommend the Cracklin’ Duck Sandwhich and the calamari (best calamari we have ever eaten)
