The Country’s Highest Grossing Indie Restaurant Is in Miami Beach

We all know Miami Beach is one of the best cities in the southeastern United States to find a great variety of food. The sheer assortment of cuisine means there is practically something for everyone no matter how obscure or fickle the palate may be. To further reinforce, just how great dining in Miami Beach is, consider that one of its famous restaurants was recently named the highest-grossing independent restaurant in the United States.

Indeed, the honor of the country’s highest-grossing independent restaurant as determined by Restaurant Business Magazine is being bestowed on none other than Joe’s Stone Crab, a longtime Miami Beach mainstay. The perennial local favorite grossed just over a whopping $38 million, setting a new record for itself. It also served well over 320,000 customers.

While Joe’s Stone Crab earned the top spot, another Miami Beach hotspot ranked high on the list: Prime 112. The well-regarded steakhouse earned 11th place, grossing a handsome $23.6 million. Also making the list were Komodo in the Brickell area, Virginia Key’s The Rusty Pelican, and Makoto in the affluent village of Bal Harbour.
