BRICKELL WELCOMES NEWEST HOTSPOT – BABY JANE

Adding to Brickell’s vibrant dining scene, a new concept will emerge in April 2016 with Baby Jane. Brought to you by Native Sons Hospitality, the beloved emerging hospitality group behind Ariete, helmed by Sidebar’s Jason Odio and Cyprus Room alum, Chef Michael Beltran, along with Odio’s longtime mentor, nightlife honcho Roman Jones, Baby Jane fills a void among Brickell’s high-priced eateries, providing a laid-back bungalow atmosphere for post-work craft cocktails and evening snacks like duck and foie gras croquettas and pastrami tacos.

Featuring remastered classics and tasty bar snacks, the menu at Baby Jane will incorporate Executive Chef Michael Beltran’s “New World American” approach to cooking, catering to cocktail enthusiasts, food insiders and late-night carousers. The interior is designed by Ghosthouse Design’s Mark Lehmkuhl, who also conceptualized wildly popular South Beach boite Bodega. Lehmkuhl now brings the same crowd-pleasing chic and tongue-in-cheek details to Baby Jane.

Boasting a proud pedigree consisting of impressive stints at revered eateries such as Cypress Room, Norman’s 180 and Tuyo, and most recently helming the kitchen at Ariete, Executive Chef Michael Beltran certainly knows his way around quality ingredients, diverse dishes and expert execution, and is proud to work with chef Chef de Cuisine Gio Fesser at Baby Jane on their uber fresh, impeccably prepared local and in-season dishes.

The moderately priced, frequently rotating collection of made-in-house snacks includes house grilled wings with a choice of jerk, soy caramel or buffalo sauce, duck and foie gras croquettas, tacos made with short rib pastrami, “pork and pickles” made with homemade pickles and grilled pork belly. The “Handheld Things” section of the menu encompasses the “Pig Stack” burger made with two pork patties, American cheese, and house made special sauce and the “Chug Burger,” a Beltran speciality with a double-patty, B&B pickles and cheddar cheese. Craveable pasture-raised meat and seafood entrees, include local fish with piperade and salsa verde and BBQ chicken thighs with corn, radish and black bean.

Artful desserts of lemon bars, turtle brownies and pie pockets are sure to please the most discerning of palates.

The beverage program at Baby Jane will include local beers on tap, a generous amount of beers by the bottle, and an array of wines, as well as a progressive cocktail program. With a focus on dozens of house-made bitters, tonics and shrubs, Baby Jane will also offer an ever-charnging Punch Board, and feature drinks like the “Jane and Juice” made with passionfruit, jalapeno, gin, honey and fresh mint.

The space is currently under construction, but when considering its final look and feel, enthusiastic diners and Brickell’s cocktail set can expect the restaurant’s décor, just like the food and drink, to celebrate the spirit and nostalgia American classics, juxtaposed with the casual sophistication of a Malibu bungalow. Lehmkuhl’s design of the airy 40-seat interior space welcomes with brick walls, cozy fireplace, church pew seats, elk horns on the walls, a tile bar and full-ceiling mural by celebrated artist, Juan Rojas.

The 20-seat outdoor café upholds the essence of the interior design and delivers the bliss of Miami’s year-round temperate climate, ideal for enjoying Brickell’s tastiest newcomer.

Oh My Gosh! Brigadeiros

Leave a Comment

Oh My Gosh! Brigadeiros is an absolutely apt name for the Gables bakery slinging out this wonderful Brazilian treats. After talking to the owner, he mentioned that people would eat his Brigadeiros and exclaim “OH. MY. GOSH!” He know he had stumbled into the perfect name for his business. It’s cute, quirky, and a very literal representation of what comes to a person’s mind of sampling these confections.

Brigadeiros are normally small truffle-like Brazilian confections made from condensed milk, butter, and chocolate. They are rolled into balls and usually coated in chocolate sprinkles. While traditional Brigadeiros are extremely delicious and decadent, Oh My Gosh! takes them the gourmet route and offers them in creative flavors and presentations. By making sophisticated versions of his home’s beloved treat, the owner at Oh My Gosh! Brigadeiros hopes to make the brigadeiro more accessible and known to the American public. “Most people walking in don’t even know what Brigadeiros are. But once they try one, they’re hooked. We become a part of their rotation like truffles, cupcakes, and ice cream.”

The interior of the shop is very consciously decorated around the color scheme chosen for the packaging. The kitschy and minimal aesthetic of the place lends itself to being quite comforting and not overbearing at all. The focus is on the brigadeiro display case, and rightly so. With around 20 different flavors, the display is filled with abundant amounts of color and textures, making it an attractive centerpiece for the store. Besides the brigadeiros, the shop also offers a decked out coffee bar to accompany any treats. While the lattes and cappuccinos are great, the obvious draw is the nutella-rimmed cappuccino. By rolling the rim of the cup in nutella and sprinkles and then serving it with any drink of choice, Oh My Gosh! Brigadeiros takes decadence to the next level and makes. Paired with any Brigadeiro, you’ll be on a sugar rush in no time.

Oh My Gosh! Brigadeiro might be the only stand-alone Brigadeiro shop in all of Miami. This treat is usually delegated to home cooks and bakers illegally making them and selling them from their own homes for the Brazilian population in Miami. The owner of Oh My Gosh! Saw a niche in the market for this treat, especially as the Brazilian population seems to be a consistent rise for the past few years in Miami. Overall goal is to expand and begin national shipping processes, making the Brigadeiro as much of a household name as the truffle. Personally, I believe they are delicious enough where they can be in the higher echelon like the truffle and ice cream is. It can be eaten in one or two bites, it’s very beautiful, and it might be one of the most decadent and beautiful things I’ve tasted in a long time. Overall, it even had me exclaiming, “Oh My God!”
