Summer is sizzling and so is the city's restaurant scene.

Curated by the founders of Miami’s beloved Coyo Taco and 1-800-LUCKY, Como Como is the Moxy Miami South Beach hotel’s latest culinary gem. Serving as the executive chef is Scott Linquist, who has crafted a culturally vibrant and inviting menu that spans the flavors and heart of coastal Mexican cuisine. Referred to as a marisqueria, the eatery channels the flavors of the Mexican seaside through decadent seafood dishes that span refreshing dressed oysters to colorful ceviches, special raw bar specialties and more.

Indulge in the tacos you love and crave from the Coyo founder with a luxe twist, served flash fried and crispy with flour tortilla, chile vinegar and various fixings, offered with salmon, pulpo or hamachi. But the journey does not stop there—utilizing the king of all kitchen appliances, a Josper oven, Linquist has programmed mouthwatering entrees that will keep you coming back for more, including the pescado a la talla (whole butterflied snapper served open-faced with two marinades); the Spanish-style chuleton grande; or the crown jewel—cordero (whole eight-bone rack of Australian lamb). Guaranteed to leave a lasting impression, the beautifully plated dishes remain consistent upon each return.
In a setting that is just as awe-inspiring as the cuisine being served, immerse yourself in the decadent interior design from Saladino Design Studio that nods to its culture with Mesoamerican artifacts, carved wooden doorways and wrought-iron archways.

And with over 200 varieties of mezcal in-house, the mixology program enhances the experience further with innovative libations and spirits for tequila and mezcal lovers to rejoice in. Post-dinner, guests are invited to its sultry speakeasy aptly named Mezcalista located behind the restaurant—where the expert mixologists will keep the cocktails and good times flowing as hip beats carry guests through the night. Offering a sliver of coastal Mexico in the heart of Miami Beach, Como Como remains one of the city’s cultural hot spots for an extraordinarily memorable hospitality experience. 919 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, comocomomiami.com
