We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

We love Miami. You love Miami. Which is why it’s so hard to watch what’s happening in Miami right now. Restaurant workers are being laid off, healthcare professionals are battling on the frontlines, and people who need a hot meal are having a hard time getting one.

But you should also know about all the amazing ways that Miami restaurants are supporting people in need right now, and how you can support them as well.

We’ll be using this guide to highlight restaurant initiatives around the city that are giving back to the Miami community. And we’ll be updating the list as we learn about more. For additional resources, information, and Infatuation-hosted fundraising projects, visit our page here.
