Located less than 20 miles away from the heart of downtown Miami is Kendall, an unincorporated city in Miami-Dade County. Coupling a near-tropical climate and glamorous, peaceful neighborhoods with its close proximity to renowned beaches, it’s no surprise that Kendall is one of Miami’s most prosperous suburbs. Mediterranean Revival and jaw-dropping contemporary designs can be found throughout both building and home architecture in this tranquil community.

Quiet residential living close to a diverse shopping and dining scene
Kendall provides locals with a warm, relaxing, and welcoming suburban atmosphere. Close to iconic shopping destinations, entertainment options, elite dining, and picturesque beaches, there is something to do for residents of all ages. While locals live near the action, many reside in private gated communities alongside tree-lined and professionally-landscaped streets. Its quiet neighborhoods provide a peaceful ambiance without straying too far from Miami’s vibrant scene, making it the perfect place for residents who enjoy year-round vacation living.
Dining, Shopping & Entertainment
Situated in the heart of Kendall is Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar, a stylish spot serving Peruvian small plates and a wide assortment of adult beverages. Wok-seared salmon, Peruvian fried fish, braised lamb shank, meat empanadas, and deep-fried yuca are just some of the tasty options available for guests. Satisfy your American fare cravings in a modern setting at Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Bar. Treat yourself to a glass of California wine from the eatery’s full-service bar while leafing through a menu offering premium meats like center-cut Black Angus filet mignon, New Zealand lamb, duck breast, and snapper. For dining and entertainment in one, spend the evening at Blue Martini. Order from both seafood and American classics on the menu or indulge in a signature cocktail. Live music from popular local performers is scheduled every night, making it the perfect spot to dance the night away.
For both residents and visitors alike, Dadeland Mall is one of Kendall’s biggest draws. High-quality handbags can be found at COACH while bohemian-style fashion favorites can be purchased at Free People. Grab a new pair of shades at Oakley or elevate your wardrobe with a new pair of boots at Steve Madden.
