Brickell is filled with finance people who shake your hand a little too hard, and upscale restaurants. We tend to avoid both - but not when the food is this good. We like everything we’ve had at Nativo, especially the Venezuelan spot’s crudo, where thinly-sliced fish gets showered tableside in a green apple vinaigrette that’s both sweet and a little tart. They also serve a meatless hallaca that somehow tastes like it’s filled with beef. The restaurant isn’t exactly cozy - it’s located inside a big hotel - but it also has a pretty nice waterfront view from the 25th floor. And even though it works better for winning over clients than a date, we’d still happily endure a painful handshake to come back here to eat that hallaca again.
