Surfside Downtown Shopping
By: Sara Liss
Steps away from the ocean, Surfside’s Downtown area is located on Harding Avenue between 94th Street and 96th Street.
Downtown will satisfy your retail cravings with its variety of unique stores and stylish boutiques. In two blocks, you will encounter a collection of fine jewelers, salons, clothing boutiques and much more.
Downtown is also where you will find many of Surfside’s acclaimed restaurants, many reflecting the eclectic international visitor mix of Europeans, French, Canadians and South Americans. Where else can you taste cuisines from around the world in two blocks?
The main business district, Harding Ave, hosts a monthly arts and entertainment night on the third Thursday of every month where live music, food trucks and entertainment draw crowds to the sidewalk restaurants. Those restaurants, like most of the businesses on Harding, vary from the quirky-yet-excellent self-described “fake deli” Josh’s Deli. Helmed by young hip chef Josh Marcus, the restaurant features dishes like lobster knishes and duck fat matzo ball soup.
Classic Italian stalwart Café Ragazzi features crowd-pleasing generous portions of red sauce favorites. There are also a smattering of kosher establishments, like the newly-opened and very popular Backyard BBQ serving house-smoked brisket and wings. Sushi Republic still pleases with its authentic and reasonably-priced lunchtime bento boxes and maki rolls.
Another neighborhood favorite is The Greek Place, serving Aegean classics like babaganoush and hummus with fluffy pita bread. Enjoy high-end dining at Tiberio restaurant, where owner Giulio Santillo greets each diner at the door and proffers exceptional hospitality.
Para o café da manhã, vá para Cafe Vert ou o local Starbucks , enquanto a padaria da velha escola, O Pin Rolante , tem um seguidor leal que embala a pequena loja para seu pão de challah e biscoitos de rugelah frescos.
Harding Ave is where most of Surfside's boutiques are located, including the stylish Le Beau Maroc, featuring colorful kaftans, jewelry and home furnishings sourced from Morocco. Other upscale retailers include Oberle Opticians with the latest designer shades from Thom Browne, Oliver Peoples, Bentley, Fred, and Maybach.
Dependendo do gosto pessoal do indivíduo, há um olhar para todos, desde chás simples até luxo superior. Os salões também são abundantes nesta tira, incluindo manchas rápidas de manicure como Tucci Nails e Elle Blow-Dry Bar que oferece explosões profissionais e aplicações de maquiagem. Para um corte de cabelo simples e rápido, dirija-se ao Barbeiro Surfside .
Just off Harding Ave and on A1A are several hotels that offer dining and nightlife options. The splashy new Grand Beach Hotel Surfside features two towers across the street from each other with rooftop pools and cocktail bars perfect for catching a nightcap.
Esta tira é também o coração da cidade com lojas de varejo e serviços como o supermercado local Publix, correios, seis bancos, tinturarias, consultórios médicos, dentistas e até mesmo um escritório veterinário que alinha a rua. Clique aqui para um mapa dos negócios do Downtown Surfside.
At night when the palm trees that line the thoroughfare are lit up and the sidewalk cafes are buzzing, downtown can have a magical feel. And, the fact that the beach is only two blocks away makes this spot a fantastic destination in South Florida.
