You’ve encountered many in your day. Suspensions. Causeways. Catwalks... Jeff.
And now you can face the city’s busiest drawbridge the way nature intended: with a pisco sour in hand.
That’s how we recommend you start things off at Brickell Bridge Bistro & Bar, a den of Latin cocktails and comfort food in the shadow of downtown’s connective steel, now open.
Residing in the ground floor of 500 Brickell, this sleek spot’s a block away from the Miami River, on a quiet side street shielded from traffic—both motor and nautical.
Wind your way toward the antique couches on the sidewalk patio, summon a round of drinks—a Mojito Italiano spiked with Aperol for you, the Taste of Autumn (pear vodka, lemon, sage) for her—and marvel at what feels like a Lincoln Road café touched down in the middle of Office Building Row.
But before too long, you’ll probably find yourself wandering over to one of the red snakeskin booths inside. There, you’ll summon a sea of gussied-up Mediterranean comfort food from Mango Gang vet Allen Susser, who’s big on local fish and Caribbean flavors. Think Fig and Prosciutto Pizzas, a Key Lime Mojo Pork Chop and seafood bouillabaisse made with green curry and coconut rum.
We hear pirates love it.
