Made in Italy Gourmet

The lofty 3,500-square-foot open warehouse space has been decorated with crates, vintage bicycles, olive trees and chandeliers to achieve a rustic countryside feel. The market is divided into sections, beginning with a coffee and wine bar; a food counter where you can order pasta dishes, salads and hot focaccia and ciabatta sandwiches—like the Veloce with Camembert delle Langhe and speck ($13)—a salumeria where you can get the best cured meats and cheeses; and a wine library with a wooden communal table for tastings.

At Campania, savory Southern flavors are highlighted in Neapolitan pizzas like a Capricciosa with tomato, mozzarella, artichokes, ham, black olives and mushrooms ($14), and the Campania white pizza with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula and prosciutto($15).

Miami's 2015 resolution may be to raise the bar on authentic Mexican food. We've got our eye on Bodega's swank warehouse-style patio, complete with colorful picnic benches, a retrofitted airstream trailer, bicycle seats turned into bar stools and an old-school marquee listing the day's specials. Expect panza tacos ($9) with guajillo braised pork belly, charred onions, fried jalapeños, cilantro and red mole sauce, and the late-night torta ($8) with steak, Nueske's bacon, black beans, Oaxaca cheese, fried egg, habanero-soaked onion straws and salsa rosada. Walk through the meat locker and you'll find a speakeasy tricked out with vintage red velvet sofas against exposed brick walls. Shoot billiards while sipping tequila shots and mezcal cocktails crafted by local mixologist Bryan Canales, including the El Buro Illegal ($13) with mezcal joven, cinnamon-ginger, lemon, lime and mandarin Jarritos.

Cibo Wine Bar

The downright palatial three-story establishment—decked out with hanging lamps and a glass-encased 400-plus wine cellar wall splitting the main room from the brick oven station—is as breathtaking as the selection of wine and beer on draft. The rooftop terrace, with stunning views of the southernmost point of South Beach, just may become your favorite wooing spot. Expect Italian fare with 17-plus styles of pizzas and pastas, and an extensive antipasto menu that includes salumeria boards ($18) and pesce crudos—including a house-made cured Atlantic salmon with blood orange, red peppercorn and fennel ($16).
