THE CATCH OF THE DAY GETS ELEVATED TO DIZZYING HEIGHTS AT BAZAAR MAR, THE NEWEST ITERATION OF THE POPULAR BAZAAR BY JOSÉ ANDRÉS CONCEPT OF SLS HOTELS AND CHEF JOSÉ ANDRÉS. Located within the luxurious SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences in downtown Miami, the 210-seat Bazaar Mar evokes all the bounty of the oceans, with a seasonal emphasis on Miami and the Caribbean. As its name implies, (mar is Spanish for sea), the vibrant menu features everything from ‘sea snacks’ like ceviches, seaweeds and tiraditos to whole fish prepared in a variety of ways and a extensive raw bar. Hand-crafted cocktails join a curated list of Spanish and international wines to complement the cuisine. Here is more information about Bazaar-Mar :

 

According to Eater :

"Seafood is the star of José Andrés’ second Bazaar concept in Miami, Bazaar Mar, now open inside the newly opened SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences. As the name alludes, its menu focus will lean towards seafood served in his signature tapas style format. Think dishes like bacalao croquettes, sashimi, grilled whole fish, full raw bar offerings and for the more adventurous eater, offal seafood dishes like seared monkfish liver. Like all his Bazaar spaces, this one was designed by Philippe Starck, featuring decor inspired by famous sea ports from Mykonos to the South Pacific. The white and blue color palette reigns supreme, with marble table tops and floors and handprinted tiles by artist Sergio Mora with whimsical designs — mermaids, unicorns, and even Andrés himself can all be spotted if you look closely — found all over the walls of the massive 7,200-square-foot, 210-seat restaurant. Helping keep the room well lit are large windows and lamp shades signed by friends of the restaurant." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to New Times :

"The dishes are, as expected, an over the top celebration of sea life. Andres fashions mini fantasies for his dishes. A bagel and lox ($12), made with Russ & Daughters smoked salmon, air bread, cream cheese, and pickled onions, looks like a school of frolicking fish. A "classic" cobia ceviche ($26) is fashioned into one perfect rose and garnished with leche de tigre, nasturtium leaf, sweet potato, and corn nuts. A whole salt-baked red snapper ($65) is prepared with romesco sauce and mojo verde. Bazaar Mar also offers an extensive raw bar including oysters, sea urchin, and scallops. Also find an uni souffle and a whole fried lion fish ($38). If you prefer to stay on land, jamón ibérico de bellota Fermín, a 48-month cured ham from free-range, acorn-fed, black-footed Iberico pigs, is hand cut for $56 a serving." written by Laine Doss.

 

According to Yelp :

"My wife and a couple friends tried several different items on the menu and were blown away by the creativity, flavor, and satisfaction. First, when you walk into the restaurant you immediately realize you are in a different place. The tile on the floor and walls is full of art representing the sea and there are huge fish heads with horns on the wall inside the bar and near the kitchen. You also see the salt water tanks where they keep their prized sea food items alive until it is ready for your plate such as lobster, clams, and oysters. Our server was Amos (?), who was extremely helpful and truly added to the positive experience we had at bazaar mar. I can say with a straight face that this was the best meal of my life. Thank you bazaar mar and Croix for the amazing experience." written by Nick D. (rated 5 stars)

After long years of waiting, the ultimate project Brickell City Centre is finally set to opens their retail shops. Today, Nov 3rd at 10 AM the shops at Brickell City Centre will finally be opened. This highly anticipated mall spans three city blocks and features more than 100 global and local retail brands. Here is more information about the opening :

 

According to Real Deal :

"Yet due to construction delays, only anchor tenant Saks Fifth Avenue and about a dozen of the 120 planned stores will open initially, as the rest of the shops and eateries rush to complete their space in time for the holiday season. Swire and retail co-developers Simon Property Group and Whitman Family Development have 92 percent of the retail space committed and 88 stores under construction, Swire Properties President Stephen Owens told The Real Deal." written by Ina Cordle and Katherine Kallergis.

 

According to Miami.com :

"Four looooong years in the making, the highly anticipated mall spans three city blocks and features more than 100 global and local retail brands. A larger-than-life Saks Fifth Avenue serves as an anchor while shops by Audemars Piguet, Armani, All Saints, Ted Baker, Chopard, Diptyque, Hugo Boss, Intermix, Kendra Scott, Lafayette 148 New York, NARS, Nest Casa, Ted Baker London, Tommy Bahama, Victoria’s Secret and more are in the retail mix." written by Maria Tettamanti.

 

According to Herald :

"The shopping center, cooled by an innovative climate ribbon that shades shoppers from the sun and fans them with sea breezes, stretches across three city blocks linked by elevated pedestrian bridges. It offers 1,700 underground parking spaces and also connects to Miami’s Metromover. Public transit will be crucial to the project’s success as navigating the area by car can be tricky, due to Brickell congestion and several active construction sites in the area. It is located at 701 S. Miami Ave."

JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING CHEF MICHAEL SCHWARTZ BRINGS HONEST ITALIAN FOOD FEATURING FRESH INGREDIENTS FROM THE HEARTH AND THE SIMPLICITY OF HANDMADE ARTISANAL BREADS AND PASTA TO FI’LIA. A meal begins with a crusty loaf, presented with olive oil and oregano snipped at the table. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven highlight beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart, with the smell of toasted garlic croutons reminding you of how satisfying and memorable the classics can be. Cocktails are refreshingly uncomplicated – less about complex recipes and technique, and more about how unpretentiously perfect a spritz is on a July or December afternoon. A focused wine list celebrating Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility. Here is more information about Fi'lia :

 

According to Eater :

"This marks the first Italian concept for the James Beard award-winning chef, and it showcases a menu filled with Italian classics with that signature Schwartz twist. The kitchen is overseen by chef de cuisine Tim Piazza, and is creating dishes like Caesar salads prepared table side, with the dressing made in front of the guests and the garlic croutons toasted on the cart; pizzas topped with items like pancetta, ricotta, and tons of local produce; plenty of house-made pastas ranging from the traditional Cacio e Pepe to the more hearty corn agnolotti topped with roasted lobster sauce plus a variety of small plates like bruschetta. And, of course, the restaurant now also features its own first press, cold press Italian extra-virgin olive oil blend, which we're sure will be in just about every dish. To wash it all back there are tons of beverages to choose from including four bottled drinks (opened table-side, naturally), a section devoted to the Italian Spritz with six different versions of the drink, a beer list filled with craft and seasonal styles, and a wine list focused on Italian regional varietals and American wines." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Miami.com :

"True to Schwartz's style, the menu starts off with Snacks including Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta with stracciatella and basil and Charred Eggplant Spread on freshly grilled bread with grated bottarga. Small dishes include Citrus Salad with pistachio and aged piave vecchio, and a 42-oz. Bisteca Fiorentino executed on the wood grill with Meyer lemon and rosemary. There's also Caesar salad made table side. Daily made pastas include Corn Agnolotti with roasted lobster sauce and Braised Short Rib Crespelle--Italian crepes baked with béchamel, taleggio and trugole. Then there are pizzas including  Margherita with tomato, mozzarella and basil, finished with the restaurant’s own first press, cold press Italian extra-virgin olive oil blend, Leek & Potato with pancetta, rosemary and trugole, and Pistachio Pesto with house made ricotta, charred onion, and pecorino." written by Lesley Abravanel.

Visa-O1 debuted in Miami Beach two years ago. Chef Renato Viola and partner Umberto Mascagni truly loved pizza and had a simple goal: for the public to be able to taste true traditional Italian pizza. Now they are opening a 2nd location for their business and it's located at the former Miami Smokers Express pop-up space (1000 S. Miami Ave., Miami). Here is more information about Visa-O1 Brickell :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Elbow room. Yep. It exists now. Instead of a mere 18 seats, the new location has a patio and a dining room. The latter is quite spacious, with shelves displaying Sinatra albums and moka pots. And as ever... The pizza is serious business. It employs flour imported from master pizzaiolo Renato Viola’s farm in Italy, of course. He’s also a world champion in acrobatic pizza, which basically results in a ridiculously light, thin, crispy pie that’s somehow chewy, too. Traditional is fine. But extraordinary is better. You can’t go wrong with a margherita or pepperoni pie. But we suggest venturing to the Special and Extraordinary sections of the menu. That’s where the Jacqueline with truffle oil and runny eggs lives. And the Star Luca filled with ricotta cheese and spicy salami. Luck favors the bold. Relax. They’ve got beer and wine. Mostly of the Italian variety. Moretti. Super Tuscans. You get it." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to New Times :

"The Brickell menu will list the same dishes offered at the original location. Additionally, wine and beer will be served. Pies are divided into categories: traditional, special, and extraordinary. Prices start at $4.99 for an individual size and top out at $16.99 for a 13-inch, with toppings such as fresh burrata stracciatella, natural honey, truffle oil, and Nutella. One of the best-selling dishes is the Instagram-worthy Star Luca — a star-shaped pizza filled with ricotta cheese, spicy salami, mozzarella, and San Marzano tomato sauce ($14.90). Other choices include calzones and antipasti. You can also opt to build your own salad. Vegans will be happy to know they can create their own pizza using vegan cheese." written by ALEXANDRIA GUERRA.

 

According to Eater :

"The two-year-old South Beach favorite — that has gained a somewhat of a cult following in its short lifetime — takes over the space right next to Dolores, But You Can Call Me Lolita at 1000 South Miami Avenue. The menu will remain burrata, honey, truffle and even Nutella. Plus, this location will also serve up wine and beer. But the team isn’t done expanding, however, with its third outpost set to debut in Wynwood sometime next month. Visa-O1 Brickell is now open every weekday from 11:30 a.m. to midnight, Saturday from noon to midnight and Sunday from noon to 11 p.m." written by Olee Fowler.

Sugar is the 40th floor rooftop bar and garden, offers cocktails and Asian tapas. There you can relax and watch day turn into night as you take in the panoramic view overlooking the downtown Miami skyline and surrounding waterways below. Sugar is located at the top of the EAST hotel, which was the first tower to top off at the project. Here is more information about Sugar :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"There’s nothing but open sky here, so be prepared to make your exit should the rain gods decide to crash the party. Silly rain gods. The idea: a Balinese garden with a bar toward the back and plenty of intimate nooks nestled amongst trees and shrubbery for imbibing with a date. That’s the idea. Speaking of imbibing, the Sesame Sling with gin, sesame, hibiscus and mango is a viable option. As is the rye-and-Thai-iced-tea concoction they’re calling the Sweet Life. The edible things skew toward the Asian tapas side. Lamb and beef satay. Crispy tandoori squid. Stuff like that. Should rain happen, take cover in the loving arms of the bar at Quinto La Huella down on the fifth floor."

 

According to Yelp :

"Brickell and classy aren't two words I would normally use together in a sentence, but the hot new rooftop lounge, Sugar, is breaking the rules (for now)!   Located on the 40th floor of Brickell City Centre's EAST hotel, Sugar pays homage to its developers roots, with Asian Pacific decor throughout.  The style is unobtrusive, but felt slightly out of place.  However, the show stopper here isn't the decor; its the 360 degree city view! With maze like gardens and candles everywhere for mood enhancement, it is easy to see Sugar has something Brickell does not--- a quiet place to have a drink.  Small tables with benches surround the perimeter of the rooftop plus a few scattered love seats and a center bar.  The place is small and so are the food and drink menus.  The servers were always helpful and welcoming." written by Davina (rated 4 stars).

Over a decade ago when Sam Nazarian first envisioned the SLS brand, he knew the experience was about more than just hotels. For him, SLS represented a "new idea" in terms of culture and community, with an aesthetic and lifestyle that lent itself brilliantly to a residential setting. Today, that "new idea" has become a reality with the Summer 2016 debut of SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences in Miami. With that said, iconic Miami chef Michael Schwartz will be filling in one of the restaurant inside of SLS Brickell. It's called Fi'lia, the first Italian concept from Michael Scwartz, rooted in simplicity and fresh ingredients. Here is more information about Fi'lia :

 

According to Eater :

"First up is will be Schwartz’s first ever Italian concept, Fi’lia, planning its debut in October 2016. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and "feature honest Italian food highlighting fresh ingredients." On the menu think rustic Italian dishes like table-side created Caesar salad, pizzas and pastas." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to New Times :

"Michael Schwartz will launch an entirely new concept in his portfolio of eateries. Fi'lia, an Italian restaurant, will follow the James Beard Award winner's philosophy of simple and honest cooking by offering handmade artisanal breads, pizzas, and pastas. Fi'lia, whose name is Italian for "daughter," will also offer old-school caesar salads tossed tableside with shaved Parmesan and garlic croutons — prepared in the manner of classic New York eateries. Says Schwartz of his project: "It’s exciting to enter a new, nearby neighborhood exploring the style of food that has been a great influence in my cooking since I first entered a restaurant kitchen 30 years ago." written by Laine Doss.

 

According to Miami.com :

"Fi’lia (which is a play on Figlia, the Italian word for ‘daughter’, of which Schwartz has two) will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and feature Italian food highlighting fresh ingredients from the hearth and the simplicity of handmade artisanal breads and pasta. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven showcase beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart. Cocktails will be “uncomplicated” and more about that unpretentiously perfect spritz. The wine list  will highlight Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility." written by Fred Gonzalez.

Miami Smokers is a Smokehouse on a mission to bring timeless curing and smoking techniques and heritage breed pork to Miami consumers, one slice of bacon at a time. They strive to use the very best, most sustainable and locally available products. Such as pigs raised with no antibiotics or hormones, allowed to graze in pastures, fed a wholesome, all vegetarian, grain based diet; or natural evaporated cane sugar from Central Florida and our very own harvested, Miami coast, sea salt. They opened their first location at Little Havana and now they are going to open a pop-up at the former Sushi Maki Place, 1000 S. Miami Ave. in Brickell. Here is more information about Miami Smokers at Brickell :

 

According to New Times :

"Located adjacent to Mary Brickell Village, Miami Smokers Express will seat roughly 50 people between indoor and outdoor seating. Barrientos said this concept would serve as a prelude to what people can expect from their market opening in the downtown Miami Central Station project. Fans from their flagship shop will be able to enjoy the same menu they grew to love. The new appetizers will also be on the menu at Miami Smokers Express. Additions include a slider trio made from its popular sandwiches including the porcheta preparada, BBQ berk, and a Smokers frita (three of the same sliders are $9; an assortment of three is $10) and a  Floridian meat board ($4 per meat, $3 per cheese). The smokehouse is also rolling out its version of charcuterie with Miami Smokers homemade sausages (one for $6, two for $11, and three for $15)." written by Alexandria Guerra.

 

According to Gecce Miami :

"The partners and founders of the Little Havana smokehouse are starting a new project, opening on Monday, June 13, a Miami Smokers Express pop-up will be at the former Sushi Maki location at 1000 S. Miami Ave. in Brickell. According to the Miami Smokers website, the Brickell pop-up will remain open until mid-September. "

The traditional Hawaiian dish is getting plenty of love in Miami lately, and a restaurant solely dedicated to the dish is now opens at 169 SW 7th St, Brickell called Poké 305. The fast-casual restaurant, owned by local Victoria Chediak, it incorporates the Hawaiian fish dish with "the flavors of Latin America" through various sauces, fruits and spices incorporated into the bowls. Creating the dishes is Yukie Horito, a Japanese chef who is the first female graduate of Japan’s Tsuji cooking school. On the menu will be six signature bowls along with a build-your-own own all topped with various sauces. Poké 305 is a fast casual restaurant with a simple and straight forward menu, which we think will become quite popular for a quick lunch among the Brickell business crew. Here is more information about Poke 305 :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Quick poké primer: it originated in that great non-contiguous state of Hawaii. And it’s sort of like sushi, what with all the raw fish and rice. Except Hawaiians just throw the whole thing in a bowl with some sauce and call it a day. That’s basically what’s happening here. Here being a simple concrete-and-wood space primed for your next I-have-10.2-seconds-in-between-meetings lunch. The chef concocting your bowls is Yukie Horita, the first female chef to graduate from Japan’s Tsuji cooking school. Which is to say, you’ll be just fine. Now, you can go with the aforementioned rice as a base, or opt for quinoa and salad. Tuna, shrimp and whitefish will likely find their way in there, too, along with your choice of toppings like jalapeño, fruit and sauces that range from leche de tigre to sriracha."

 

According to Yelp :

"I looooved the Akamai bowl, the tuna was fresh and the combination of the mango with the ginger and avocado was soooo delicious.
I've also tried the Laki bowl and combination of kimchi with the pineapple and the Korean BBQ sauce was out of this world.
The service was fast making it so convenient,  specially if you are on the run, and if you drive to Poké 305, you can do valet and they validate your ticket!" written by Edgar (rated 5 stars).

 

According to MMTM :

"Poké 305 is the type of place where you’ll find a favorite dish and make an unapologetic escape for a healthy, fast, and fulfilling lunch. I really love this concept and can only hope that Poké 305 makes its way to other neighborhoods including the burgeoning city of Doral which is where my 9-5 office is located. I love healthy choices at Poké 305 and the fact that they’ve capitalized on a trend that I’m hoping is here to stay."

Introducing the first outpost of Uruguay’s beachfront restaurant, Parador La Huella, as the signature eatery of EAST, Miami. The urban reinvention, Quinto La Huella, offers a unique fire cooking method with a wood fire parrilla centered at the heart of their kitchen and includes a wood fire oven, sushi counter, and outdoor dining experience.

Their food is down to earth, much like the atmosphere, creating a relaxing environment where memories are made.

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"The original concept is located in a beachside town in Uruguay. It’s called Parador La Huella. And it was voted one of Latin America’s best restaurants in 2015. They’ve chosen Brickell as their second outpost and brought over a parrilla and some mighty fine wood-fired ovens fueled by red and white oak. You really need to take a look around. The long stretch of bar with the Brickell skyline as a backdrop. The tanned leather chairs and rustic wood-block tables for lounging. The copper cookware lining the walls. The date-night glory. Try the langoustines with curry potatoes. Or the rack of lamb. That’s where those wood-fired ovens and parrilla kick in. As does the wine."

 

According to Eater :

"Named after the floor its on in the hotel — the 5th or quinto in Spanish — its menu focuses on grilled cuisine prepared on a parrilla in all different forms like ribeye, sweetbreads and squid ink rice. In addition to grilled items, non-grilled items like oven-roasted shrimp, fish tartare, and milanese steak can also be found, along with a variety of sushi options from the restaurant’s in-house sushi bar. The massive 9,700 square-foot space features seating for 359 when you combine its indoor and outdoor options, a large bar and art pieces deco rationing the space curated by Studio Collective, in collaboration with Miami-based Uruguayan Sammer Gallery. The restaurant is now open daily at 788 Brickell Plaza from Monday to Thursday from 6:30am to 1 a.m., Friday and Saturday until 2 a.m. and Sunday until midnight." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Real Deal :

"Quinto La Huella will feature a parrilla at the center of its kitchen, wood fire ovens fueled with local red and white oak, and a sushi counter highlighting Florida’s coastline. Parilla dishes will range from Entrecot (ribeye) to Arroz Negro (squid ink & shrimp rice) and Mollejas (sweetbreads). Additional dishes will include Filetes de Merluza a la Plancha, a grilled filet of hake; Langostinos al Horno, oven-roasted shrimp with curried potatoes and spinach; Verduras Asadas, vegetables grilled over open flame; and Crudo Siciliano, a fresh fish tartare with capers and fresh herbs, according to the release. Among Courreges’ desserts: Volcán de Dulce de Leche, a warm cake that oozes with dulce de leche when cracked open. EAST, Miami will be Swire Hotels’ first hotel in North America, following the openings of EAST in Hong Kong and Beijing. The hotel will have 352 guest rooms, including eight suites and 89 one, two and three-bedroom residence suits with kitchen and laundry facilities." written by Ina Cordle.
