A Bold New Fusion Restaurant Has Opened at Miccosukee Casino & Resort

The menu features a unique blend of Latin American, Mediterranean, Asian, and American cuisine elements.

The menu at La Brisa — a new Latin fusion restaurant led by Michelin-trained Executive Chef Nicolas Caicedo that opened on November 10 at Miccosukee Casino & Resort – is equally as colorful as it is bursting with bold flavors. Take, for instance, the pollo asado, a half chicken served with carrot banana cream and cilantro lime sauce. Or, the pumpkin risotto with pumpkin tempura, coconut cream, ají amarillo paste, and garlic chips. Notice the combination of spice, tropical ingredients, and savory notes that balance these innovative dishes.

Chef Caicedo, formerly known for his role as an Executive Chef for the Dirty Rabbit Group (including El Chinito Latino Bar and Lokal Kitchen in Wynwood), has conceived of an exciting new menu at La Brisa that includes elements of Latin American, Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine. His global influences, including his training in culinary school in Barcelona, mentorship under Michelin-starred Spanish chef Martín Berasategui, travels throughout Europe, time working in kitchens in New York, and home roots in Miami shine through in La Brisa’s fusion-forward menu.

Diners will find some comfort food, such as short ribs braised for 24 hours served with a rich, four-cheese mac and cheese, as well as some more exotic options like the watermelon pizza, an eye-catching shared plate served on a crispy flour tortilla with an avocado mousse, jalapeño, green and red onions, and spicy mayo.

Braised Short Ribs

The craft cocktails at La Brisa, which utilize tropical ingredients and liquors ranging from mezcal to tequila, bourbon, and rum, are perhaps best enjoyed on the restaurant’s al fresco patio; or, for a more intimate experience, settle indoors in the casual ambiance of the dining room which features modern and breezy Florida vibes. The open kitchen concept at La Brisa allows diners to witness Caicedo’s culinary team in action, finishing each pristine detail of La Brisa’s artistic and creative plates.

Artisan bread is offered, baked fresh by Sous Chef David Calle. And desserts are no less unique than the rest of the menu. Try the pears and vanilla cream with basil meringue and candied granola or the “torrijas,” a sweet brioche with honeycomb, vanilla ice cream, and dulce de leche.

La Brisa Restaurant is open for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. Lunch is served from noon to 4 p.m., dinner from 6 to 11 p.m., and happy hour from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. During happy hour, guests will enjoy BOGO specialty cocktails with the order of an appetizer or entrée (bar only).

La Brisa is located on the casino floor at Miccosukee Casino & Resort at 500 SW 177th  Ave, Miami, FL 33194. For reservations, email [email protected] or call 305-925-8185. Find La Brisa on social @labrisa_restaurant.
