Lippi Restaurant in Brickell, Miami

This restaurant is now closed.

Brickell is one of Miami’s fastest growing  metropolitan neighborhoods, it is densely populated with high-rise luxury condominiums and upscale apartment towers. Having been referred to as the “Manhattan of the South,” Brickell is central to Miami’s banking, investment, and financial sectors along with many foreign consulate offices. Hand-in-hand with the upscale residential lifestyle and power-broking professionals comes the inevitable ubiquitous social life. Brickell Avenue, and the adjoining Miami Avenue is home to many popular restaurants and bars.

The Brickell urban lifestyle is fashionable and chic, and most of the restaurants in the area are no exception. One such trendy restaurant is Lippi. It’s safe to categorize the Lippi menu as New American style with its shared plate menu, creative cocktails, and an impressive wine list of over 400 old and new world regions.

Lippi is all about swanky and sharp, rolling a triple-threat in decor, ambiance and menu. It’s a smart looking venue, with savvy service, and a sexy mood; and for this you will pay. For some, Lippi is an extravagance, others a special occasion restaurant and for the well-heeled Brickell-ites, perhaps, their stomping ground.

Lippi has both indoor and outdoor seating. If you’re a fan of dining al fresco, the sprawling terrace that wraps around the restaurant has quite a bit to offer in terms of its ambiance being smack-dab on Brickell.

The seafood dishes were outstanding in all its modesty. Nothing over the top, or overdone, the simplicity of ingredients and preparation is what made these entrees work. The flavorful and very prettily presented duck breast, while famously fatty, (i.e., Foie gras “fat liver”  is made from duck or goose livers) was a bit too heavy of an entree for me.

Lippi does presentation very well from the minute you walk in the door as you are greeted, to the plating of food and service of cocktails; the well-trained staff tends to your every need, and I’m sure in some cases every whim. Lippi is experience dining, at lunch or dinner.

Pastry, if done right, is an art form, and is certainly not an exception here at Lippi. Mild sweetness with every bite, is a true compliment to what dessert should be especially after a diverse selection of courses.
