New Brickell Restaurants To Try Now
“That famous hidden place” with the infamous name change has opened a second location–Brickell’s Mister O1 (formally known as Visa O1) outpost sits on South Miami Avenue, not far from Mary Brickell Village. That means no more schlepping to Miami Beach for a bite of their star pizza or loaded calzone. A Wynwood location is also coming soon.
The River Yacht Club has opened Dashi, a progressive Japanese concept backed by Chef Shuji Hiyakawa–a protégé of Iron Chef Morimoto. The waterside restaurant features delicate but delicious hot and cold plates, including mouth-melting white fish karaage and an equally lovely sea bass miso. Don’t skip dessert, either: Sesame chocolates and a tofu custard are delightful finishes. (Feature image: Scallops and caviar)
A taste of South Africa has come to Brickell City City with Big Easy Winebar & Grill. The joint venture between Ernie Els (the former world’s top golfer who was affectionately nicknamed “The Big Easy” due to his stature) and Grove Bay Hospitality Group. The bustling bar flaunts multiple TVs while the dining area keeps things warm and inviting with amber lighting. Order up the bison, risotto, and flatbread to leave feeling satisfied.
YAKU by La Mar is now open on the Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s northern terrace. The outdoor space emphasizes Peruvian-inspired punches and bites, including classic cebiche and mussels: Don’t skip the quinoa burger (the featured photo). The concept brings a social element to La Mar’s waterside location.
