Located at 1201 Brickell Avenue, this urban little beer spot is a great place to enjoy happy hour. But don’t worry; it’s not stuffy … rather, the industrial décor and interior tends to give it a more hip and swanky feel. The food is exceptionally good, coming from a menu that fuses together both New American cuisine and Moroccan flavors.
The lunch and dinner menus are one and the same, with seemingly endless options! Start of with a tasty appetizer like kobe mini burgers, or go with the fried calamari that’s served to you with the spicy marinara and wasabi aioli. The housemade chips are perfect for a table of friends, and are always made fresh and tossed with bleu cheese chunks, onions, and bacon. Gordon Biersch’s garlic fries are always a hit, as are the shrimp-chicken potstickers served with an Asian barbecue sauce and hot mustard for dipping pleasure. Are you vegetarian? Enjoy the artichokes that are fried to crispy perfection!
There are some delightful salads, too, like the chopped salad with chicken, pepperoni, pepper jack, onions, tomatoes and a variety of fresh vegetables, and topped with an olive-lemon vinaigrette). There are also very tasty soups like a lobster bisque that has a little hint of sherry wine to it.
The restaurant serves up some delicious pizza (who would have known!) that are made from scratch, hand-tossed, and covered in your favorite toppings. Go with something like the roasted garlic & chicken pizza that’s one of those “white pizzas” – you know, with a white sauce, and also topped with roasted garlic along with the never dried-out pulled chicken breast. Or how about you try the barbecue chicken pizza that also has cilantro and onions – a really great combination!
Or go with a succulent steak – there’s the New York strip that’s grilled to perfection and served with the restaurant’s delicious gorgonzola potato wedge; steak medallions that are marinated in ginger soy sauce; or other delicious options.
The seafood is really wonderful, with selections like tilapia with a pecan crust, served with a sherry cream sauce. The grilled sea bass is served with sweet ginger rice; and the shrimp & scallop linguini is tossed up with red peppers, tomatoes and spinach in a really tasty pesto cream sauce. Or try the house specialty, the “Cedar Plank Pecan Crusted Salmon” that is topped with a honey pecan crust and served up with a dill cream sauce. Seafood dishes run you around $20.
And plenty of other completely delicious dishes to choose from – enjoy teriyaki shicken, or try the sweet and spicy cashew chicken stir fry served atop jasmine rice; or try shredded steak that’s seasoned with cilantro and lime, and mixed with tomato sauce, black beans and rice, and a side of fried sweet plantains.
And don’t forget all the sandwiches and burgers being served up here! The “Märzen Barbecue Chicken” is delicious and is topped with smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and the restaurant’s famous barbecue sauce; as is Lump Crab Cake Sandwich with spinach and cajun remoulade. accompanied by garlic fries. There’s also a tasty Cuban sandwich to try, piled high with roast pork, ham, swiss, mustard and sliced pickles, all on tasty and fresh Cuban bread.
For dessert? Go with the strawberry cheesecake, double chocolate fudge cake, or warm apple bread pudding, each $6.50, and you can’t go wrong! And of course all kinds of specialty cocktails to enjoy as compliment to your meal!
