The venerable institution on Las Olas called American Social Bar & Restaurant now has a Miami outpost in Brickell

http://americansocialbar.com/brickell/

Located on the ground floor of the Neo Vertika building, it is almost 3 times the size of their Las Olas location. It also has something their other location lacks. An expansive outdoor patio area with fire pits and beautiful views of yachts cruising down the Miami River. You can choose from comfy lounge areas or normal tables. Flat screens abound outside so you can catch a Heat or Dolphins game while dining and drinking al fresco. Expect the same stellar service and cuisine. They have an a la carte brunch menu on weekends. We started with a half dozen of Kusshi oysters from British Columbia. Uber fresh ! By the end of our meal we had tried everything from their Chicken & Waffles to the PEI mussels. The crab scramble disappeared quickly also from our table! The Chicken & Waffles had a reverse twist. The sweetness of marscapone was on the chicken and herbs were infused in the waffles. Uniquely delicious. Bottomless mimosas helped wash all the goodness down. Inside, patrons of the Las Olas location will instantly recognize the tables with the self serving beer spouts on the tables. Yup. Self serve beer. You can order a pre determined amount for your table or party and voila. You too can be bartender for your friends. Great food indoor or out. Good food and good service with a amazing river view. We loved it ! American Social is the kind of place where if you frequent enough, everybody will know your name.

Recap of @SavortheSeason by #SobeSavvy

image1

On Saturday November 16, the community came together to usher in the holiday season at the annual event known as Savor the Season!
Savor the Season is Brickell World Plaza’s annual semi-formal food and wine festival showcasing Miami’s most exciting restaurants and a spectacular selection of wine. This event benefits local non-profit organizations including the Humane Society of Greater Miami, UM’s Crohn’s and Colitis Center and UM-NSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities. Guests took part in 600 Brickell’s grand countdown to light up its signature 40-foot Christmas wreath.

This family friendly event took place at Brickell World Plaza , a 30,000-square-foot oasis in the very heart of the Brickell financial district, destined to become Miami’s coolest new venue for social gatherings, cultural events and entertainment. Whether it’s a musical performance on the fully wired stage, dinning al fresco under the shady live oak trees, or attending a private social event, Brickell World Plaza is the place to be.

Guests enjoyed unlimited food and wine from more than 20 of Miami’s finest restaurants and distributors, and live entertainment under the stars. We all had the opportunity to “Put on the Ritz” dance under the Miami stars! It was a perfect way to celebrate the holiday season and contribute to local community organizations. For more information, go to http://www.savortheseasonmiami.com.

Here is a photo recap of the event! Enjoy!
