Arguably one of the best places to shop, the pedestrian-friendly Lincoln Road Mall, located between Alton Road and Washington Avenue, is home to a plethora of sidewalk restaurants and sidewalk cafes, high-end boutiques and retail shops, and cultural venues and galleries. Make a day of it starting with a tempting pastry at Paul’s bakery for breakfast. Then enjoy shopping at stores like CB2, Desigual, Madewell and local couture boutiques like Astoria. For lunch, go for a gourmet slice at Spris or a quick bite at The Café at Books & Books. Later, catch a movie at the South Beach 18 cinema, and after drop by The Frieze Ice Cream for a refreshing sorbet or Serendipity 3 for a decadent dessert. Walk around and take in the sights, like Frank Gehry’s radically designed symphony hall, the New World Center—and of course, the attractive, fashionably dressed crowd. Come dinner time, choose from a range of mouthwatering bites at some of the area’s premier restaurants, such as Juvia, Yuca, or Altamar or any of the many delicious trattorias. Afterwards, stop in an art gallery or for a nightcap at the Clevelander or Segafredo L’Originale to cap off your evening.
