The second Spanish-American War is raging in Brickell and a few menu options are struggling to control
the property on your plate. Dolores, But You Can Call Me Lolita recently launched a brunch menu that’s
mobilizing to attack hunger on multiple fronts with breakfast classics and tapas. The American side prepares
Chicken & Waffles guarded by a phalanx of bacon; Steak & Eggs reinforced by homefries; and 3 takes on Eggs
Benedict. The Iberian options include Béchamel & Jamón Serrano Croquettes, zingy Gazpacho and flash-fried
Tempura Churros with cinnamon ice cream. The French offer their allegiance in the form of Veuve Clicquot,
Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial and Rosé by the glass. Lead the charge at 1000 S. Miami Ave.; 305.403.3103;

Napoleon Bonaparte once proclaimed: “An army marches on its stomach.” Tamarina applied the emperor’s
advice to their Executive Lunch Menu designed to get you back into the financial fray quickly and with
renewed vigor. The 3-course ration includes a selection of appetizers, pastas made in-house and decadent
desserts like warm Bomboloni Donuts surrounded by a flight of stracciatella, espresso and vanilla gelato. À
la carte customers are duty-bound to take advantage of the seasonal supply of Crudos, Caviar & Carpaccio…
especially the heirloom tomato, extra virgin olive oil and black lava salt-seasoned Tiger Prawn Carpaccio
that’s sliced so thin you’ll think it was cut with a razor-sharp sabre; TamarinaRestaurants.com.
