Go Easy at Big Easy Winebar & Grill

This South African spot introduces a new "Easy Hour"

Fried Green Tomatoes at Big Easy Winebar & Grill

Here in the Magic City, the only taste of South Africa we get—literally—is at standout South African restaurant, Big Easy Winebar & Grill {701 South Miami Avenue Suite 33, Brickell; 786.814.5955} at the new Brickell City Centre. Perfect for Brickell neighborhood’s work-hard, play-hard crowd, this haute lunch-and-dinner spot recently launched a new, after-work Easy Hour for Miami’s finest wine lovers.

Taking place every weekday from 4 to 7 p.m., Easy Hour adds to the restaurant’s classic, laid-back feel with half-off wines by the glass, and flights of both white and red South African wines, each of which features two-ounce tastings of select bottles, for just $12 each. Wine not doing it for you? Order a cold brewski—$5 draft beers are available during this happy hour only.

To complement those tasty drinks with some delicious bites, order the $10 Too Easy Plank, available only during Easy Hour, and pick two items from the appetizer menu: like Fried Green Tomatoes, Oyster Gazpacho Shots, Boerie Bites; Pork Belly “Lollipops,” or Mini Cauliflower Samosas. Take a bite, and you’ll feel like you’re in the Western Cape in no time.

Craving a trip to Big Easy Winebar & Grill? So are we. While Easy Hour is only offered for a few hours each weekday, the restaurant is open daily for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is also open for dinner Sunday through Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays, from 5 p.m. to Midnight.

Happy dining!
