Not only does Verde have one of the best views in Miami, but it’s casual enough to show up here in shorts and a tank top. The restaurant is located in the back of the Pérez Art Museum and has a beautiful, uninterrupted view of Biscayne Bay. That is really why you should come here (and why you shouldn’t sit inside), but the food - mostly salads, pizza, and sandwiches - is solid and the mimosas are also bottomless during brunch for only $24. They go great with the squash blossom pizza.
