There's joy in making a great cocktail.
Anyone can get behind a bar and mix a drink. For that matter, anyone can walk into a kitchen and prepare a meal. We've all cooked for ourselves at home, haven't we? But bartenders, like chefs, have many different levels of expertise.

Though the person who pops your Budweiser can at a beach shack might be considered a bartender, there are others for whom building a beautiful cocktail is an art form. They are the people who make pilgrimages to bourbon distilleries in Kentucky and to Oaxaca to study mezcal plants. Their thirst for knowledge about spirits is rivaled only by their passion to make the most delicious cocktail.

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.

Wine by the Bay in Downtown Miami: Taste Wines From Around the World

It's difficult to capture Stefano Campanini's attention for more than a couple of minutes. Owner of downtown Miami's Wine by the Bay, he has a passion for the product and a charming Italian demeanor that have earned him many fans who wave as they walk by or stop in to say hello and grab a bottle on the way to a dinner party. They trust his opinion, fine-tuned during years of travel and study, and have come to rely on what he believes is one of the few mom-and-pop stores in the area.

The small staff of four jokingly refers to the job title as PD: professional drinker. After only a brief conversation, you realize they all know their stuff. Tasting upward of 150 wines a week, they have a grasp on every bottle in the store and can help you make the best choice.

While Wine by the Bay boasts an impressive selection ranging in price from $11.95 to $2000-plus, it also offers weekly tastings to educate the public on wines from around the world. These events include plenty of vino, good company, and some tasty bites.
