The Dadeland area, considered by locals as Kendall's de facto downtown, houses a large percentage of the community's restaurants and nightlife. Dadeland sits where U.S. Route 1, the Palmetto Expressway and Southwest 88th Street come together. Its culinary offerings include a mix of seafood, New American and rustic Italian establishments.

Trattoria Luna, a favorite among locals and tourists alike, provides a menu of Italian food and fine wines. Established in 1997, this rustic gem embodies an ambiance that whisks diners away to the heart of Tuscany. Offering downright addictive food, local favorites include tilapia sautéed in a white wine sauce and cooked with onions, black olives and capers, and the grilled salmon, which comes served over a bed of the restaurant's specialty pesto sauce. Wine lovers can spend an entire evening poring over Trattoria Luna's wine selection. The Sicilian pinot noir ranks as a must-try for those who love a classic red.

Seafood lovers don't want to skip The Original Crab House, a Dadeland staple known as much for its affable staff as for its wide selection of fresh catches. The crab sampler provides a hearty mix of garlic blue crabs, steam blue crabs and snow crab legs, while the broiled mahimahi remains a crowd favorite. This establishment also receives an inordinate number of rave reviews for its key lime pie, so be sure to save room after dinner.

Dadeland also houses Shorty's Bar-B-Q, which has been winning awards for its home-cooked barbecue for decades. Stop in for some tasty brisket, creamy coleslaw and corn on the cob, or become the most popular person in the office or social group by having Shorty's barbecue catered in. Shorty's satisfies your palate without straining your wallet.

Kendall's nightlife features a few laid-back bars concentrated in the Dadeland area, as well as several sports bars and dives scattered throughout the rest of the community. For world-class nightlife, just up the road and accessible by public bus and rail sit the clubs of Brickell and South Beach in Miami. World of Beer and Sandbar Sports Grill Miami rank as hot spots in Dadeland for a festive social setting, as both establishments cater to all types of people, ranging from college students to vacationers.


Kendall's history dates back to 1883, when the Florida Land and Mortgage Company, headed by director Henry John Broughton Kendall, purchased the plot of land where the community now sits. Slow development characterized the area for the ensuing three decades, but the economic boom of the 1920s brought rapid growth to the area that receded just as quickly after the 1929 crash.

Steady development took hold of the Kendall area following the second World War, and it persisted for many decades. A direct hit from Hurricane Andrew in 1992 destroyed thousands of homes and businesses in the area, but the community pulled together and slowly rebuilt.

Today, Kendall maintains the strong community bonds that were forged in Andrew's wake. Neighbors get together to enjoy art galleries such as Art Express and to participate in annual events, such as the celebration of Earth Day.


Many of the individual communities within Kendall's boundaries feature flat, wide streets conducive to walking and biking. As for Kendall in its entirety, its sheer size necessitates a car or public transportation to get around. The same holds true for trips to and from downtown Miami.

Kendall features mostly free parking, and the few lots that charge are inexpensive. Access to multiple large highways makes for easy trips to other points of interest in the Miami metro area.

For those who wish not to drive, multiple taxi companies operate in Kendall, and Uber maintains a presence. Usually, though one cannot hail a cab in Kendall.

Public transportation includes Miami's Metrorail and Metrobus, both of which provide stops in Kendall.


The cost of living in Kendall remains lower than the city's average. Expect to pay $1,102 per month to rent a one-bedroom apartment, around $3.75 for a beer in a typical bar and $2.25 for a bus or train ticket to downtown Miami. Area gas prices hover at 5 percent higher than the national average.


Dadeland Mall serves as Kendall's largest shopping destination. It features big box department stores, high-end retailers and smaller niche shops. Chain retailers dominate the mall, but independently-owned boutiques and specialty shops can be found scattered throughout Kendall.

For high-end furniture and home decor at bargain prices, stop by Upscale Furniture Consignment Gallery on Southwest 132nd Street. Whether buying or selling, locals rave about the ease of doing business with the staff at this local establishment.

Antique lovers gravitate toward Bonnin Ashley Antiques on Southwest 72nd Avenue, where authentic French antiques sit on shelves alongside hard-to-find old clocks and fine art.

Depending on one's location within Kendall, options for large grocery shopping trips include Publix, Winn-Dixie and BJ's. Locally owned international and ethnic grocers such as Wing Fa Asian Supermarket and Sedano's Supermarket also dot the area. The Kendall Village Farmers Market sits just west of Florida's Turnpike on Southwest 124th Avenue.


Kendall Indian Hammocks Park serves as the largest park in town, featuring walking trails, soccer and baseball fields, disc golf, and a massive skate park. This park features ample space for picnicking and barbecuing, and it also supplies exercise equipment for those looking to get in a workout. Free parking and admission make Kendall Indian Hammocks Park a popular spot for a Sunday afternoon, though use of the skate park carries a $2 charge on weekdays and $5 on weekends.

Each February, Kendall Indian Hammocks Park hosts its Family Festival of Arts and Games. An awesome event to support children with disabilities, it promises fun for all kids, disability or not.

Centennial Park may be smaller, but it also features basketball courts, tennis courts, a large playground for kids, and a huge grassy area for picnics and playing with pets. Also free to enter and park, this park draws many visitors partly because of its covered gazebo area for parties and events.
