September was another busy month for Miami’s restaurant scene, which welcomed globally recognized names to the area.

Openings included the much-anticipated launch of Thomas Keller’s Bouchon in Coral Gables and Gordon Ramsay’s seventh location of Hell’s Kitchen in downtown Miami.

Locally, the first phase of Michael Beltran’s new Coconut Grove restaurant Eva debuted with the Oyster Bar, while Cindy Hutson’s beloved Miracle Mile restaurant Ortanique launched a revival temporary pop-up in Coral Gables.

And there’s still more to come.

Ramsay is expected to open his Asian-themed restaurant, Lucky Cat, before the end of the year. Another well-known chef and restaurateur José Andrés announced a forthcoming project that will open before 2023 comes to a close — the third outpost of the Mediterranean-themed establishment, Zaytinya, at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach.

Here’s a look at what’s open and what’s coming next to Miami’s food scene:
