On July 9, Miami restaurants were forced to pivot once again when the county declared a temporary ban on indoor dining. But after some initial confusion, Mayor Carlos Giménez stated that outdoor dining would still be allowed. Since then, some Miami restaurants have been scrambling to set up outdoor tables. In Wynwood, places like KYU and Zak the Baker are taking advantage of loosened restrictions and converting street parking into seating areas. The Miami Downtown Development Authority is also leading an initiative to help restaurants in its neighborhood do the same.
Below, we put together a photo series highlighting how some restaurants in Wynwood, Downtown, and MiMo are adapting - plus some Instagram shots of other places around Miami.
