Maty's review image



3255 NE First Ave, Miami
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Maty’s is a restaurant from the team behind Itamae, a Nikkei spot that’s made us want to consult a lawyer about the possibility of being adopted by a restaurant. But the Peruvian dishes at Maty’s aren’t strictly Nikkei. They are adapted from the chef’s family recipes—the same family whose photos line the simple white walls of the spacious Midtown restaurant. There are a couple ceviche options (ordering both isn’t the worst idea). But the big protein dishes are where Maty’s really goes all out. The one non-negotiable plate from that section of the menu is the whole roasted dorade, an unbelievably tender fish served butterflied so it looks like it’s been flattened by a steamroller. Most dishes are meant to be shared, and they have tables great for big groups. Plus, the cocktail menu is one of our favorites in town. So keep Maty’s on your shortlist for a fun dinner with friends.
