Miami has a new walking tour that takes place in the Design District. It is a food tasting experience and public art appreciation tour conceived by Miami Culinary Tours. The new tour exposed us to many new and happening developments in the Design District. The number one thing is the many new food destinations that have opened up. The first being the St. Roch Market place. It is  somewhat a food court with the culinary hubs by some really creative chefs. We also went to an affordable wine shop at the second floor of the Palms, where we had this amazing trendy Rose wine. Our favorite was the all in one Puerco Asado bowl downstairs at Esteban’s Kitchen. We were surprised at how  Esteban’s Kitchen made a creative twist to a traditional dish so common in Miami. This was very unexpected and was our favorite dish of the day. Comes with a Yuca puree, carmelized onions, cheese (we are guessing) and paired with your choice of red or white wine. We went to a bunch more stops, look through the photos below to see more.

Although it is a walking tour, we would recommend this as a rainy day activity as we did that day. It was nice and relaxing walking in the rain through the narrow streets and corridors of the Design District. Our tour guide Mirka had positive attitude which also added to the pleasant ambience. Rain or shine we recommend this Miami Culinary Tour’s Design District for everyone. We really think you’ll get a lot for your money as you get part Food Tasting, Public Art and picture opportunity tour at one of Miami’s most happening neighborhoods. One big heads up, if you are allergy to seafood you’ll be missing out on 3 stops. So keep that in mind. 

Here is a run down of how your tour’s itinerary.

The first stop is the St. Roch Market, a contemporary, multi-chef driven food hall, that came to Miami by way of New Orleans. Some of the best chefs in the Miami food industry will delight your palette with their creations. Then certified sommeliers at the Abaco tasting room will introduce you to a perfectly chilled rosé from their exclusive wine collection.

The Estefan Kitchen is the first Cuban restaurant in the Miami Design District. Personally invited by Craig Robins, Gloria and Emilio Estefan have brought their warm, Havana-style dining experience offering traditional favorites that pair Cuban flavors with the glamour and vitality of the Miami Design District. Here you’ll taste Miami Culinary Tour’s favorite dish paired with the perfect wine.

In between stops, cleanse your palette at MadLab, Soraya Kilgore’s new pink-hued palace in the Design District. The pastry chef for award-winning restaurants like Brava and Alter, Kilgore creates decadent ice-cream in classic and seasonal flavors that can be paired with more than 30 toppings. The delicious treats made on-site are simply out of this world.

As you stroll down Jade Alley, a small offshoot from Paseo Ponti – the walking street that runs through the heart of Design District – take a moment to sample the tacos at La Pollita, one of the best-kept secrets in Miami. Combining their 16 years of restaurant experience, most at Michelin-starred restaurants in NYC, top chefs Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer bring tacos to a whole new level.

Top off your culinary experience with a little adult indulgence. Aubi & Ramsa, a 21-and-over shop, serves alcoholic ice-cream in flavors such as Highland Truffle, an ice cream crafted with Belgian chocolate and Macallan 12-year single-malt Scotch. Their line is the result of years of exploration, refining and commitment to a novelty that has no match.

The Design District Food Tour is available throughout the summer on Saturday and Sunday afternoons or evenings and daily in high season.  The fee is $89 for adults and $69 for children 7 – 13. Ticket price includes all of the food equivalent to a full meal and a guided tour of the area.
