Spotlight on Avo Miami: a Healthy Twist on Nouveau Mediterranean Cuisine




Opening in the spring of 2021, Avo Miami is an upscale fast-casual eatery featuring modern Mediterranean cuisine with a healthy twist. Located on Bay Road in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbor, the open-air 2,000 square foot restaurant, with boho chic decor that speaks to the freshness of the food itself, Avo is one of the more interesting casual eateries to emerge upon the green Miami food scene.


Offering freshly prepared breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menus, plus take-out, pick-up, and catering delivery service, Avo’s beautifully crafted cuisine has an avocado-centric theme coloring every dish. But, though this green-conscious eatery is dedicated to offering healthy ingredients and simple freshness, there’s more than avocado on the menu at this Miami Beach hotspot.



Brainchild of a well-known, Miami-based entrepreneur, Dilo Murad drew his inspiration from his Kurdish/German upbringing when creating the menu and overall concept for Avo. Born out of a desire to offer fresh, tasty meals made from sustainably sourced foods, it was Murad’s intention to create a restaurant that is simultaneously healthy for the body, soul and the environment!

The idea behind Avo Miami started with my personal journey to become a healthier person,” explained Murad, ``I wanted to make an impact in my community by offering quality, healthy food with bold flavor profiles inspired by my favorite foods.”




When developing the menu for Avo, Murad enlisted the expert culinary skills of Chef Yaniv Cohen, known as “The Spice Detective.” A purposeful use of sustainably sourced herbs and spices, every ingredient is selected with health and wellness benefits at top of mind.



Revealing his dedication and pursuit to seek out and develop recipes that both taste - and do - good, Murad explained, in a recent press release, that he has “always loved the taste of traditional classic homemade cuisine,” and revealed that his purpose, when creating the Avo menu, was to elevate familiar favorites with a “focus on freshness.”

It’s for that reason that guests at Avo Miami can expect classics like Shashuka, homemade lentil soup, and falafel, while experiencing a unique array of mouthwatering signature dishes like Avo Truffle Toast, Zatter Lamb Chops, French Fried Truffle-Aioli, protein-packed power bowls, and a variety of signature house salads that decorate the menu with green goodness.




Breakfast at Avo Miami presents a series of ubiquitous avocado toasts, including fan favorites like Avocado Feta and Walnut Toast, Avo Truffle Toast, and Avo Salmon Toast, a combination of avocado, ricotta cheese, dill, and smoked salmon drizzled with lemon-infused olive oil, served on thick-cut, country-style bread. More breakfast and brunch specialties like Turkish Bourekas and Matcha Pancakes complete the menu at this bohemian-inspired bistro by the bay.

All-day lunch includes specialties like the Pulled Chicken Sandwich, European Salad, and Vegan Falafel, served as a bowl or a generous side.

Light and healthy, made with a choice of various protein options including spicy grilled tuna, marinated shrimp brochettes, grilled chicken brochettes, grilled salmon or vegan falafel, Avo's Protein Bowls make the perfect post-workout meal. Served with basmati rice, braised lentils and avocado chutney, Avo’s power bowls are already creating a taste sensation among the Miami health-conscious community.

Other fan favorites include signature house spreads and dips including avocado hummus, tzatziki sauce, avocado chutney, jalapeño spicy sauce and creamy tahini.


Avo Miami’s new dinner menu features starters like Mediterranean style tuna tartar, and main entrees including lamb chops, branzino, sesame salmon steak, fettuccine in vegan creamy avocado basil sauce, and a mezze platter offering avocado chutney, hummus, Tabbouleh salad, Greek salad served with fresh warm pita, just to name a few.


The beverage menu features a full coffee bar, made with coffee beans from Counter Clutter, includes a choice of lattes, coladas, espresso, and dairy-free cappuccinos, as well as fresh squeezed juices, Pure Green Juices and Bali coconut water.


While the inspired Mediterranean cuisine is bringing locals and tourists to the new Miami hotspot, it's the lush, casual atmosphere and friendly hipster vibe that’s keeping guests coming back. Bringing nourishment of the body and soul to this sunny beachside community, the food is just one of the ingredients that make this versatile Miami restaurant so tempting.


From the ceiling to the walls, Avo’s interior is lined with plush greenery, woven bamboo-inspired light fixtures, and textured decor, creating an inviting and relaxed ambiance and overall bohemian-chicness.


Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, with a 60 seat dining capacity, and counter-service, Avo guests have the option to dine-in, take out or have food delivered to their door.

Customers can order directly via Avo’s easy-to-navigate online menu or through its social media channels. Using the latest technology and premium delivery services, Avo has partnered with Sauce to provide all-day delivery as well as catering services, delivering food fast and keeping the dishes arriving fresh and visually appealing.



Born out of a genuine desire to “inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste,” Avo Miami’s Mediterranean-inspired menu and boho-beautiful ambiance offers diners the perfect intersection of health-inspired ingenuity with elevated gourmet deliciousness. Nestled in the beautiful Sunset Harbor section of the city, Dilo Murad has created a nouveau-style eatery that is more than a place to enjoy great food.
