The 2,670-square-foot farm-to-table restaurant will be a first for Downtown Dadeland
PINECREST, FLORIDA – (December 2016) – The Brick, Downtown Dadeland’s first-ever farm-to-table restaurant, made its debut at the urban culinary and lifestyle center on Dec. 3.
Created by owner Corey Bousquet, the environmentally sustainable restaurant will be crafted with reclaimed wood and natural greenery and will feature a seasonally inspired menu, which uses locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant will work with renowned restaurant consultant and James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser to create unique culinary staples such as cauliflower mac ‘n’ cheese, made with roasted cauliflower, Israeli couscous, herbed-panko breadcrumbs, and a blend of smoked gouda and parmesan; a seared porchetta sandwich, stuffed with a variety of spices and topped with a locally sourced fried egg, pickled vegetables and arugula; pan-seared monkfish and grits, topped with a corn, red pepper and jalapeño succotash; and grass-fed beef ribeye, topped with a rosemary-garlic demi-glace and served with red potato and carrot mash, and a side of crisped brussel sprouts. The Brick will also feature a full bar and carefully curated selection of handmade spirits.
In addition, the restaurant will offer a specialized “executive menu” targeted toward local professionals looking for a quick bite. Seasoned chef Evan Broomer will serve as The Brick’s executive chef. Broomer will bring his knowledge of Southern cuisine to the kitchen, beginning with one of the restaurants most anticipated appetizers, Southern chicken biscuit sliders topped with pickles and a spicy maple aioli.
“It’s exciting to be able to bring the farm-to-table concept to Downtown Dadeland,” said Bousquet. “The Brick is going to offer residents and visitors a local and delicious alternative to the typical dining out experience.”
The Brick is the latest restaurant to open at Downtown Dadeland, which has been undergoing a major revitalization since DHPI LLC, a joint venture between Duncan Hillsley Capital and PEBB Capital, took over in 2014.
A number of tenants will be opening doors in the coming months, some of which include: Ghee Indian Kitchen, which is owned and operated by chef Niven Patel, and Harry’s Pizzeria, a Miami staple created by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz. Recent openings include Barley an American Brasserie, Nanndi Frozen Cream & Pastry Shop and BurgerQ.
“Downtown Dadeland has evolved into a chef-driven culinary center with unique restaurant concepts that all have something different to offer,” said Shane Hillsley, Managing Director of Duncan Hillsley Capital. “It’s rare to find this many amazing restaurants located so close to each other but still able to hold their own. The Brick is going to add a whole other level of character to our restaurant lineup.”
Located on 7250 North Kendall Drive, Downtown Dadeland offers a fresh urban vision, bringing together dining, shopping and health & fitness establishments to create a dynamic and vibrant destination.
The Brick is located at 8955 SW 72nd Place and is open Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m with a daily happy hour from 5p.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, please visit www.downtowndadeland.com, Thebrickmiami.com or follow them on Instagram @the_brickmiami.
