Baby Jane

“Baby Jane is a sophisticated cocktail spot with upscale food to match…. The former Finnegan’s Brickell has been transformed into a cozy den with a faux fireplace and aged books, neon-colored taxidermy, teal tufted booths in the shape of church pews, walls clad in distressed wood and brick, brass lamps and a butcher block bar with mosaic tile facade that all add to the British hunting lodge-on-acid feel.” (Read more)

O’Lima Signature Cuisine

“The former Le Pine space is now a polished 53-seat dining room with soft pendant lighting, white tableclothed tables and carved wooden sculptures. A handful of outdoor patio seats are nicely buffered from Kane Concourse traffic…. (It’s) upscale Peruvian in a quaint neighborhood setting.” (Read more)

Pork Tomahawk Chop at Zest (Contributed)


“The indoor-outdoor space features a massive outdoor courtyard with live music Wednesdays through Saturday evenings. Indoors the dining room is cozy and outfitted in a palate of green, copper and orange…. Downtown gets a dose of (chef Cindy) Huston’s Caribbean hospitality with this bright newcomer.” (Read more)

200 S. Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-374-9378


“An homage to Mediterranean pita joints with a focus on quick, soulful food that marries the contemporary love of build-your-own meals…. A healthy take on Middle-Eastern street food with high-end chef cred in a modern Brickell location.” (Read more)
