Temple Menorah is fortunate to host many visitors. In order to make your visit easier, we are pleased to provide the following information.


Last Winter we hit 17 kosher restaurants in a week and we had a whole range of experiences. Do not leave Florida without stopping by these kosher eateries:

  1. Zak the Baker – head there for brunch or lunch. Expect a long but moving line, and possibly hard to find seating. Also expect the best breads, sandwiches, and baked goods you’ve ever had. Located in the Wynwood neighborhood of (downtown) Miami.
  2. 26 Sushi & Tapas – this Peruvian / Asian fusion dairy restaurant is home to some of the most inspired, inventive, and tasty dishes you will have in Florida. Doesn’t hurt that their wait staff is helpful, friendly, and genuinely excited about their menu offerings. Reservations recommended. Located in Surfside.
  3. Soho Asian Grill & Bar – this popular Aventura restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The service was also top notch. Located in Aventura.
  4. Fuego – recently moved to a new location in Aventura this year, this restaurant is a must for meat-lovers.
  5. Serendipity Yogurt Shoppe – an ice cream shoppe that serves all kinds of goodies. Great for the whole family. Located in Surfside.
  6. Mozart Café – a great spot for those who love brunch, not matter the time of day. Great breads, eggs, and coffees. Located in Sunny Isles.
  7. Tasty Beach Café – despite the limited hours and slow service during busy season, their brunch menu is vast and tasty. Located in Miami Beach.
  8. Hassid + Hipster – this is a bonus – a non-restaurant pop-up dining experience on January 18th & 28th only at a Downtown Miami rooftop.
