At the intersection of Brazilian, Mexican, and Italian cuisine, you'll find the chefs of Casa Brasolin, who highlight the common ground held by these diverse traditions while simultaneously pushing their inventive fusion dishes in unexpected (and delicious) directions. In addition to blazing new culinary trails, the chefs here also hope to revolutionize the midday meal, and use their lunch-centric spot in downtown Miami to add a touch of gourmet grace to a landscape dominated by burgers and burritos. Read on to learn more about some of their delicious dishes:
- Mains: Drawing equally from Latin-American and Mediterranean traditions, the entrees at Casa Brasolin emphasize strong flavors and hearty preparations. Try the restaurant's take on standbys such as lasagna or stroganoff, dig in to an order of feijoada (Brazil's renowned black bean stew), or try the escondidinho de carne seca, which matched cured beef with mashed yucca and Parmesan cheese.
- Sides: The potato originated in South America, and you'll find plenty on the sides menu at Casa Brasolin; options include fried, mashed, or roasted. You can also augment your meal with orders of collard greens, or house-made rice and beans inspired by old-fashioned home-cooked meals.
- Desserts: Casa Brasolin's sweets run the gamut from sensible to decadent. Try an acai bowl complete with guarana syrup and crunchy granola, or savor upscale takes on classic from churros and flan to panna cotta.
