Merrick Park is a great place to find a variety of restaurants, including those specializing in classic Miami-area fare. You can listen to live music and enjoy a cheesy arepa, empanadas, Latin chicken or a Cuban sandwich at a Latin American-inspired restaurant. Or, for a quick, sweet treat, pick up some cafe con leche y tostada cubana. Merrick Park also offers additional international flavors at its local French, Japanese and Mediterranean restaurants. With such a close proximity to the ocean, you can always opt for fresh seafood dishes, like fish tacos or raw oysters paired with a beer or craft cocktail. If you're in the mood for something creative and unique, stop into an upscale bar or bistro for New American fare.
