Segafredo Brickell is a testament to the versatility of coffee. On weekend mornings, mugs of java steam alongside brunch plates of crab cakes and fried eggs. Come dinnertime, though, ristrettos and macchiatos mark a fitting punctuation to meals of pizza, chicken parmesan, and homemade pappardelle pasta with braised short ribs. And afterwards, specialty espresso drinks shift to fit the nightclub ambiance; coffee mingles with sambuca and mint cream in a Montecarlo, or with ice, sugar, and a liquor of your choice in custom Shakeratos, so named for the maracas in which they are mixed.
The adaptable espresso is but one signal of Segafredo Brickell's mutable nature. At once modern and classic, the café doesn't force its patrons to choose between a traditional Italian dinner and a dance party. The coffee bar shares the space with a standard bar, as well as with Spazio Nightclub, a boutique nightclub helmed by live DJs each evening.
Fusion cuisine is exciting because it can be a maze of unexpected flavors and startling twists on tradition. A certain level of compatibility is also important, though. It's a relief, then, that chefs at SuViche—voted the No. 1 favorite at Grand Tasting Village—chose two culinary traditions that draw heavily from the sea. Plates here blend Peruvian and Japanese ingredients and techniques, allowing sushi rolls to shine alongside fresh ceviche. The acidity of pickled ginger makes flavorful sense in bowls of ceviche, in which citrus juices already sparkle sharply, cooking sashimi-like cuts of fish. Wonton chips and teriyaki traditional in Japanese dishes also give ceviche a crunch and a sweetness that seem obvious in retrospect. And the exchange works both ways: golden aji peppers and cilantro give sushi rolls hints of spice typical of South American cuisine. Diners can watch the chefs roll maki or hold retirement parties for popular spatulas in the open sushi bars.

Chatime Brickell's bright interior shines like a beacon for thirsty passersby. Inside, the staff creates a huge variety of beverages off an enormous menu of smoothies, bubble tea, and other treats. Choose your level of sweetness, ice, and toppings to customize drinks with tapioca pearls, pearl and coconut jelly, or coffee jellies that boost iced mochas to the next level.
Bright colors and faux balconies decorate the interior of LaBoca Grill Cafe, recalling the vivid hues that residents of Buenos Aires often paint their homes. The eatery's menu recalls the flavors that might be found in the kitchens of those homes: grilled salmon with ginger-orange sauce, lobster ravioli, and breaded steak milanesa are a few specialties. Earlier in the day patrons can devour brunch classics such as lox platters, brioche French toast, and eggs Benedict with skirt steak.
As its name implies, NY Bagels and Deli equips customers with all the stacked sandwiches and freshly baked bagels one would expect from a New York City deli. In the morning, cream cheese, lox, and eggs rest between bagel halves. In the afternoon, it's corned beef, baked ham, and salami. Even leafy salads, filled with grilled chicken and dried fruit, come with a choice of a bagel or bagel chips. Hot and cold coffee drinks, as well as more than a dozen smoothies, accompany dishes such as pizza and wings—two recent additions to the menu.
