Brickell is constantly transforming. With the variety of trendy and contemporary eateries sprouting around the district you just know there are a host of places to stop for a delicious lunch. To make your life easier, we’ve put together a knockout list of what we consider some of the best lunch spots in Brickell.
Just from the name “Crazy About You,” one can get romantic vibes from one of Brickell’s most amazing lunch atmospheres. Developed by the team at Spanish Grupo La Misión- which brought us Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita as well- this contemprary Brickell restaurant serves savory eclectic cuisine and features a fantastically romantic view of the bay. Popular for lunch- dates, Crazy About You features beautiful decorum, freshly made food, and has tremendous bang for your buck. Some crowd favorites are the serrano ham croquettes and the mojo-roasted half-chicken with spinach and artichokes.
If you haven’t heard about Casa Tua Cucina on brickell.com before, where have you been! Perhaps our favorite food destination, Casa Tua is a perfect spot to meet for a delectable lunch experience. The 18,000-sq.-ft. marketplace features a wide host of different stations serving Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. The setting is perfect for a quick bite and the design is superb with its clean tile work and casual ambiance. Casa Tua offers a wide range of pizzas, pastas, pastries, charcuterie and crudos along with a wine bar and a flower shop.
Another fantastic lunch location from the Spanish Grupo La Misión, Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita is an experience for the ages. A rustic 2- story setting, Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita was once the site of Miami’s Fire Station No. 4. Something quirky and awesome about the restaurant is that the upstairs with its rooftop dining area, panoramic views of the Miami skyline, and indoor seating area, is called “Dolores”. On the other hand the downstairs is referred to as “Lolita,” and features a café on weekdays while transforming into a trendy night lounge in the night.
The true haven of tacos, Tacology is home to some of the best Mexican street food in all of Dade County and Miami. Located in the heart of the Brickell City Center, Tacology’s neon purple logo is hard to miss. Tacology was created by Chef Santiago Gomez and has a unique market atmosphere with majestic hanging vines, decadent canopies, and colorful seats. A perfect place to gather during lunch time with friends or family, Tacology combines a cool atmosphere with zesty, tangy, and delectable Mexican food options. I normally go for the Pulled Chicken Chilaquiles which are to die for. Tacology also makes its way onto our 10 Best Brickell Restaurants list.
Trendy, hip, artsy. This is what comes to mind when thinking of Zuuk Mediterranean Kitchen. Commonly known in the community as the “Mediterranean Chipotle,” Zuuk infuses cool black & white interior designs with quick, fresh, and healthy food. Customers can construct their own bowl, roll, or salad and add proteins, toppings, and spreads to create their own unique Mediterranean masterpiece. The service at Zuuk is fantastic and the employees are known to be some of the friendliest in Brickell.
