High Noon

Top three new lunch spots in Brickell


Slightly light-headed and wildly salivating? 

Try any of these new lunch spots in Brickell for a satisfying midday encounter when you can't have the other kind. 

My Ceviche
Hit up this plank wood-accented shack where two-time James Beard semifinalist chef Sam Gorenstein serves up fresh stone crabs, ceviche, and Caribbean-style burritos. At the counter, order one of the charred octopus tacos with pickled red onions alongside the brand-new Ceviche Bowl with shrimp on a bed of quinoa and coconut jasmine rice, then park it at the butcher block communal table and get to it. 
1250 South Miami Ave., Brickell

Inside this brightly colored space with funky tables created by local artist Juan Raul Hoyos, this "fast-food" restaurant might be speedy, but it's anything but typical drive-thru fare. Pair a frosty Sapporo with Tokyo Temari spicy tuna with almonds and tobiko, or the Spicy Geisha tuna crab salad with avocado and soy paper, mixing up either with any one of 17 flavorful house-made sauces.

Capriccio on the River
For something a bit heartier with a sick water view, try this Italian venue where a fine dining attitude doesn't mean pretentious cuisine. Watch the yachts coast by with a glass of cabernet in hand, brandishing a pinky as the plates arrive: Capriccio's signature traditional baked meat lasagna and a fresh tomato salmon pizza topped with salty capers and arugula. Bring a date, a coworker, or that coworker you want to date. Yachts are an aphrodisiac.
41 SE 5th St., Brickell/Downtown
