Blackbrick is one of the Top 50 New Restaurants of 2014.
Bon Appetit has just released its list of the Top 50 New Restaurants of 2014 and one Miami establishment made the list of 50 nominees.

Blackbrick, Richard Hales Midtown Chinese restaurant was the only South Florida restaurant to make the list, compiled by Andrew Knowlton. According to Bon Appetit's website, although the restaurants range in cuisine, style, and size they all have one thing in common -- "flat-out ambitious deliciousness."

The restaurant was named New Times' Best Chinese Restaurant for 2014.

Knowlton praised Blackbrick for its "thoughtful spins on classic take-out flavors," "playful and laid-back" graffitied interior, and "drop-dead, seriously delicious food." The writer then singled out the restaurants pan-fried pork cheek dumplings, rib eye with black bean sauce and cumin tots, and Sichuan twice-cooked brussels sprouts as stellar dishes, before giving a special shout-out to Jenny Hales' homemade waffle fortune cookies with quirky sayings like, "To truly find yourself you should play hide-and-seek alone."

Richard Hales tells Short Order that, "we are floored to be added to this top list. We don't do PR, so this makes us happy it's all about the food."

Blackbrick joins other notable newbies like Kyle Linden Webster and Naomi Pomeroy's Expatriate in Portland; Top Chef alum Kevin Gillespie's Gunshow in Atlanta; and Paul Qui's Qui in Austin.

The Top 50 will be whittled down to a final Hot 10 list, which will be announced August 19.
