Blog: Dinner & Movie Night at Brickell Flatiron
Miami has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most vibrant cities, with its incredible variety of restaurants, lively nightlife, Art Deco architecture, and spectacular beaches. But even a night in, enjoying a home-cooked meal and a movie, can be filled with the sights, sounds, and flavors of Miami.
For an intimate evening at home, residents of the condos at Brickell Flatiron have the benefit of luxurious, modern kitchens, featuring amenities like Miele stainless steel appliances, for flexing their culinary skills. The spacious living rooms, with dramatic high ceilings and insulated soundproofed walls, are the perfect setting for a night of Miami-inspired cinematic classics. But for a truly theater-like experience, reserve Brickell Flatiron’s state-of-the-art Flatiron Theater for the night, and enjoy a private screening with plush seating, incredible acoustics, and a theater-quality projection system.
Miami’s rich culinary scene, representing the city’s cultural diversity, can inform the evening’s menu. For an amuse-bouche, tequila meatballs offer a spicy, spirit-infused twist on the traditional Swedish dish. A decadent Miami Cuban dip appetizer combines the pickles, pork, cheese, and mustard of Miami’s signature sandwich, the Cuban, and serves it up in a bread bowl — great for sharing. A Key West-style baked grouper makes for a tantalizing main course that capitalizes on the local catch of the day, seasoned with Key limes, lemons, and oranges.
For the evening’s main entertainment, settle in for a marathon of Miami-themed movies. Start with “The Birdcage,” a quintessential 1990s comedy, starring Robin Williams in his iconic role as the owner of the eponymous Miami drag club and Nathan Lane as his life partner and the club’s star performer. The hijinks and intrigue unfold against the gorgeous backdrop of South Beach, with its glistening beaches, bright blue sky, and palm trees along Ocean Drive. Next up is Brian De Palma’s “Scarface,” a gritty gangster epic featuring Al Pacino as Cuban refugee and fresh Miami arrival Tony Montana. For something a bit lighter, try “Step Up Revolution,” a tale of a dance crew that carries out elaborate flash mob performances. Drama and high-energy dance sequences play out against the vivid Miami cityscape.
And, after the final credits roll, residents of the Brickell condos can retire for the evening — or perhaps linger over a nightcap while taking in the sight of a moonlit Biscayne Bay through floor-to-ceiling windows — having soaked in some of the best of Miami’s cuisine and style.
