In this eatery beneath the Brickell Metromover track, chef-owner Jeffrey Chen (who studied the art of ramen in Japan) makes noodles with mastery on his self-made press. Open 24 hours every day, it offers the perfect nightcap: pappardelle ramen (wheat noodles and porkbone broth with nameko and shiitake mushrooms) and Sapporo. 5 SW 11th St., Miami, 786-391-2392
This rustic yet refined joint takes its orders as the name suggests—over the counter‚—and serves modern American small plates on cutting boards and cast-iron skillets. The short-rib and Brie grilled cheese is a great bet, especially paired with any of the dozen craft beers on tap (Cigar City to Magic Hat #9). 1250 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 305-374-4612
Executive Chef Julian Baker’s experience throughout Italy affirms diners at this Mary Brickell Village ristorante will enjoy an authentic Tuscan experience, right down to the handmade glassware. Use it to toast as you savor the 42-ounce Fiorentina porterhouse for two. 900 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 305-371-2767
The once-sleepy Brickell neighborhood is flourishing as a true urban destination. Boasting high residential occupancy rates in condos, a walkable lifestyle, a bustling nightlife scene, and more development on the way (all eyes are on the evolving $1 billion luxury Brickell CityCentre), it’s little wonder that new eateries have converged on the scene. Here are some of the latest restaurants Brickell has to offer.
