Chef Aaron Brooks’ seasonally driven, farm-to-table menu is filled with dishes made from ingredients he sources locally and spices with herbs grown in the restaurant’s garden. In keeping with the wholesome vibe, Edge serves lightened-up versions of various meat dishes available on the menu, focusing on smaller cuts and veggie sides. On Fridays, nine-to-fivers in the Brickell area flock to the outdoor patio for drinks in the beautiful garden.
Those of us in Miami for a while (not that long, actually) remember Brickell as the sleepy neighborhood just south of downtown, a place you’d never consider for dinner when that big client comes to town. Since all those condos rose out of nowhere, this one neighborhood now rivals the dining options of most major cities. Sparkly chandelier-topped dining rooms and DJs holding court in lounges define many of the best restaurants in Brickell, but the area is also home to some damn fine pizza in Miami, some excellent Miami brunches and exported cuisines from Hong Kong to Lima to Nice.
