Naomi's Garden Restaurant and Lounge
Naomi’s Garden is a classic Little Haiti spot with some of the best Haitian and Caribbean food in Miami. They serve oxtail, whole fried snapper, jerk chicken, and a lot more dishes that come in very big portions with sides of rice and plantain. From the street, Naomi’s just looks like a little take-out spot. But after you order, walk around to the side of the building and find the garden seating. It’s a casual space with plenty of tables, a couple of loud roosters, a small stage for occasional live music, and a few hammocks you’re welcome to use in case you overdid it with the jerk chicken.
