Ten Best Brickell Restaurants
Things are about to change in Brickell. Whether it will be for the better remains a mystery. At this moment, several stone-gray, nearly finished highrises loom on the skyline. Work is underway on Brickell City Centre, a massive, Hong Kong-financed gigaplex of shops, restaurants, offices, and hotels. Developers have partnered with the Whitman family, which built and owns Bal Harbour Shops, offering a clue as to the type of restaurants that might be on deck.

For now, however, here are the best restaurants Brickell has to offer.

Though its days may be numbered, the 100-year-old watering hole is as reliable for good wings and ribs as it is for cheap, stiff drinks. Tobacco Road's burgers are among the best in the city and nearly impossible to resist after a few rounds.

OTC, short for Over the Counter, fulfilled one of Brickell's howling needs when it opened in 2012: a local place with reliably good food, a fun atmosphere, and good drinks. It's become the neighborhood's best craft beer bar. In 2013, OTC brought in Jacob Anaya, formerly of Azul, who has since revamped the menu into a gastropub-meets-fine-dining mashup.
