American Social Brickell Debuts New Small Plates Menu

American Social - Sign

When we last wrote about American Social, we raved about their monster portions. There was no chance in hell you would be leaving hungry. But sometimes, you don’t want to hate yourself after a meal. Sometimes, you just want a drink and a more manageable bite (or two).

Thankfully, American Social Brickell read our minds. While big plates still make an appearance on the menu, the Brickell hotspot has now added smaller, shareable dishes to their repertoire. If you want a giant, awesome burger — only $5 on Mondays — you can still have that. But if you just want a night out with a glass of wine, a craft beer or a cocktail plus a few tapas, American Social has you covered, too.

180° at the DRB: New Offerings Deliver Fun Flavors

180° at the DRB is a breath of fresh air in Downtown Miami. Amidst the upscale hotel restaurants, fast-casual lunch spots and obvious money-laundering fronts in the area, the beloved gastropub sticks out like a sore thumb for all the right reasons. At 501 NE 1st Avenue, Chef Ryan Martin and his crew execute a diverse, delectable menu of global cuisine and pairs it with over 170 craft beers for good measure.

We had a chance to interview Chef Martin about the concept last year, and we’re happy to say that little has changed since then: the food is as tasty as ever, as is the beer selection (much to our diet’s detriment). With that said, there has been one noticeable change: a new menu.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Chef Martin has recently introduced a bevy of delicious items, including a burger to rival his award-winning 50/50 creation (chorizo, prime beef, queso frito, maduros, fried egg and spicy lime aioli). And yes, they’re worth your while.
