One taste of Kush’s Frita burger or their fabulous key lime pie (with pecans), and you’ll be planning your lunches and dinners here at least once a week. Kush – the gastropub nestled alongside train tracks in the edgier part of Wynwood, is the sibling of the very successful Lokal restaurant. Here you can dig into salty alligator bites, hobo Frito pie and then wash it down with a bottle of craft beer. There’s just no happier ending, we think.

Affordable and delicious, Ms. Cheezious is a win-win. The flirty food truck makes drool-worthy grill cheeses the way your gram made it with a kick. Toasted on sourdough bread, creamy blue cheese, green onion and crispy bacon are smothered together to create a tasty treat. But there are a handful of options worth trying too like the bbq pulled pork melt or the mackin melt made with gouda mac n’ cheese.
