This past Friday night. A friend of mine , Gene who I have known since 1976 was in town from my hometown Louisville, Ky were meeting to catch up on old times over dinner before he left to go on a cruise. I was thinking where should we go to dinner? - I was not in the mood to visit my typical restaurants in South Beach, Wynwood or ever Brickell Mary Village. Then the light bulb went off. Let's try out one of the new restaurants in Brickell City Centre. Brickell City Centre is a $1.05 billion shopping and mixed-use project in Miami, Florida. When finished, it will span up to five blocks to the west of Brickell Avenue and to the south of the Miami River, in the Brickell district of Greater Downtown. It will be anchored by a 107,000 square-foot Saks Fifth Avenue, Cinemex, and Italian food hall. The project is located between 7th and 8th Streets on both sides of South Miami Avenue and east of South Miami Ave on the north side of 7th Street.
When we entered the Centre, the architecture is amazing. We were impressed, even me, a world traveler - the project made me proud of Miami - my hometown now for almost 20 years. We strolled around and decided on Big Easy Winebar & Grill Miami. It has a cozy atmosphere with right type of energy. But to my surprise - the food was out of this world.
Let me tell you about this cool new place in Miami. Big Easy Winebar & Grill is an unpretentious yet sophisticated dining destination hailing from the stunning Western Cape region of South Africa – inspired by the lifestyle and spirit of South Africa’s most recognized export, Golf-icon Ernie Els (whose nickname is "Big Easy", based on his easygoing personality and effortless golf swing.

Gene had the steak and asparagus. I am not a red meat eater - but it looked and he said ti tasted superb. I had the chicken livers in this spicy sauce that to die for and the Angry Duck Curry. The flavor was over the top. I was thinking about this meal the next day it was so good. The server was good too. He was attentive and describe the experience in detail. I will be back.
And I am looking forward to selling the BrickellCityCentre residences too. Condos available starting at $600,000. Call me at 305-898-8198 for details.
