Toscana Divino Dinner at Dusk
Brickell goers can slide into Toscana Divino for a $35 three-course Italian dinner (6–7:30 p.m., daily). Our perfect menu begins with carpaccio beef tenderloin with grilled mushrooms, followed by grilled sea bream filet and any one of the delicious desserts on the regular menu. There’s also a lovely burrata and tomato salad and a maccheroni and Tuscan beef ragu, among other dishes, on the early bird menu. 900 S Miami Ave., Miami, 305-371-2767

Sunset Prix Fixe Dinner at Dolce
Looking for an early dinner and drinks combo? Dolce Italian now hosts a sunset dinner special and new apertivo happy hour (6–7:30 p.m., daily). Start the night with two-for-one beers or specialty cocktails (we recommend the Spicy Raspberry Collins) before indulging a three-course supper ($29) by Italian chef Paolo Dorigato. The twilight prix fixe menu changes daily, so you can make it a weekly affair and never get bored. 1690 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-975-2550

Feijoada Saturdays at Tutto's Mare
Sit down to chef Joao “Juca” Oliveira’s Brazilian feijoada feast every Saturday afternoon (NOON–4 p.m.). Traditionally served over rice and topped with sliced oranges, collard greens, and hot pepper sauce, feijoada is a stew of black beans and smoked meats. It’s the national dish of Brazil and it's stick to your ribs good. An all you can eat bowl is $22.95 for adults and $9.95 for children. If there were ever a midday meal to keep you satisfied through bedtime, it’s this one. 2525 3rd Ave., Miami, 305-858-2525
