Take a walk down the Miami Beach boardwalk—all the way from 1st Street to Haulover Inlet—and you’ll see plenty of bars and restaurants. But 99.9% of them exist exclusively for tourists who don’t know any better. That’s why Louie’s, a tiki hut situation in the back of a Mid-Beach hotel, is so valuable. This Cuban concept is one of the only local-friendly options a mere 15 yards from the sand. The menu is mostly things between bread. They make a very meaty Cuban sandwich that’s one of Miami’s best, and creamy shrimp croquetas worth ordering. There’s a full bar, too. This is a great place to take a little break from walking down the boardwalk, or just to remind yourself the beach isn’t only for tourists.
