Clink: Racks Italian Bistro and Market

Cucumber Gintini

By Aurora Rodríguez

Discreetly tucked within the Intracoastal Mall off 163rd Street Causeway in North Miami Beach, Racks is a welcoming spot for those seeking Italian fare at an affordable price. Stop by for a coal-oven pizza with a waterfront view, or enjoy a cocktail during the spot’s weekday happy hour from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Once you take a sip of their juicy Strawberry Mojito – which tastes as if you were biting into the ripe fruit – you’ll be eager for seconds.
