Not the first place that comes to mind for a dinner date.
But sometimes those restaurants hidden inside apartment buildings have the most surprising charms. Like the feeling you’ve stepped onto a luxury cruise liner off the coast of Malta...
Welcome to Mediterraneo Brickell—a gleaming ode to Aegean curiosities that’s open now in the Jade at Brickell building.
Walking into Mediterraneo, you’ll instantly be reminded of other glossy seafood temples like Area 31 and Altamare. You may also be reminded of a cruise ship in the Greek Isles: the windows are tinted blue, the walls are rippled and white, and turquoise accents everything from the bar stools to the sofas in the back lounge (so it may be the perfect time to debut your new Dolphins blazer).
Start with a glass of Malbec or a Classic Daiquiri 23 (rum, lime juice, simple syrup) at the bar, then settle in for Spanish-Mediterranean tapas like Seafood Paella Spring Rolls and rustic wooden tablas (oversize cutting boards) heaped with aged Manchego and Cabrales cheese (the latter is Spain’s answer to blue cheese).
And since you’re in a residential building, don’t be surprised if you run into a few models who live nearby.
For the purposes of your date, it might be best to act like you don’t know them...
