If you have not been to Brickell City Centre’s Café Americano, you’re missing out on some of the best Latin-inspired dishes in the area.

Come early and enjoy early-morning favorites like tostada Benedicts, Denver omelets, barbacoa chilaquiles, and tres leches French toast.
Should you visit later in the day, you’ll find fun fare like crispy chicken tortas, molten chicken parm, and garlicky shrimp bowls. Either way, make sure to try the cocktails—the bourbon-based Gold Standard is an experience.
Dads who love pasta will love Casa Isola, Miami Beach’s premier Italian eatery. The neighborhood gem is helmed by Chef Jose Mendin, who’s known for cooking up delectable food with a twist. Treat Dad to standouts like the calamari fritti, milanesa carpaccio, rigatoni alla vodka, and truffle pappardelle; leftovers are a given, considering the hefty portions. Wash everything down with Casa Isola’s extensive wine and beer list. Sit outside if the weather is nice—people watching is a must.

In other words, you have no excuse for not visiting.
Fun flavors abound at Paperfish Sushi in Brickell. Dads who have an adventurous palate will feel right at home at this Nikkei-inspired eatery that serves up the tastiest of sushi rolls. The menu is sizeable, so order a little from each section: Start with a ceviche and then some sushi and finish with a main like miso black cod, crispy truffle fried rice, or short ribs. Don’t forget to check out Paperfish’s equally impressive martini selection. Cheers to Dad!
