Destination: Acapulco

When she was 13 years old, Stephanie’s family piled into the car, rolled down the windows, and took off into the Mexican countryside. Their destination? Acapulco, one of Mexico’s most cosmopolitan cities. Highways and forests rolled out in front of them, and when they came to one of the region’s plunging valleys, they crossed them with slender bridges. When they drove over the famous Mezcala Bridge, perched at 560 feet, it was like the whole world unfolded for them. That feeling, of the whole world opening up to you, is something you’ll feel if you visit Acapulco yourself. The city thrives on tourism, which means it’s become an important hub of culture, especially if that culture involves food. Chefs from all over the world flock to Acapulco to display their unique creations to the seasonal tourists, and to vie for international...

What’s “American,” Anyway?

If you asked someone to name American foods, you would probably accept an answer like “hamburgers,” or “country fried steak.” You’d roll with “baked potatoes” and give a pass to “cauliflower mash.” If someone said “alligator,” you’d have to agree on geographical grounds, but the philosophical case is strong too. What’s more American than overcoming a mean-spirited, leathery predator for the sake of a tasty meal? (And before you ask, yes, alligator is delicious. Ikechi Ajoku from Brimstone Doral even ate the tongue once, and gives it his blessing.) So many things seem to fall under the American umbrella that it gets hard to define what “American” food even means. The only trends in the list above are: -Meat -Carbs -Heightened morbidity And that’s not helpful. As a group of American restaurants ourselves, we’re constantly learning about what people expect from their food. Everyone...

Four Corners: The United States

The American Tradition has always been a “melting pot,” where we welcome and blend cultures from across the globe. But hundreds of years of shared culture have led to more than borrowing: we’ve made plenty of inventions all on our own. For us, the flavors of woodsmoke, thickened gravy, and the sweet bite of barbecue are all symbols of our pioneering spirit. That’s why the grill is so important to us. It’s a memory of where we’ve been, and a tool to go where we’re going. Slow-Cooked Baby-Backed Ribs There might be nothing more American than baby-back ribs. Slow-roasted and finished on the wood fire, our house ribs have a distinct smoke flavor that you can’t mistake. Once we baste them with homemade BBQ sauce and serve them up with freshly cut fries, you’ve got yourself a meal fit for a king. Bourbon...

Four Corners: The Pacific Rim at Brimstone

This article is part of a series, “Four Corners,” that explores the way our chefs are inspired by traditional cuisines throughout the world.

We believe that by presenting a truly global cuisine, we can capture the best of America’s shared heritage and share it with our delighted patrons. Just look at what we’re making. Sushi Whether it’s being shared with cocktails or kicking off a rich meal, sushi is a staple at many of our restaurants.

Four Corners: France

French cuisine is an important part of the American tradition. Walk into any early-morning breakfast diner, and you’re sure to find quiches, hollandaise sauce, and creamy soups that warm the heart. For us, French food comes alive on our menu in the form of delicious sauces, citrus garnish, and plenty of herbs to brighten the dishes. The flavors of that beautiful country are a source of constant inspiration for us, and we’re proud to plate them every day for our loyal customers. Crabs Cakes with Remoulade Crab cakes have a powerful flavor that demands a winning sauce. Plenty of local sea-food shops will serve delicate cakes with mustards, tartares, or other strong toppings, but who said “strong” is best? We serve our cakes with a smooth and lightly tart remoulade, blended with herbs that turn our already excellent cakes into a distinct...

Adventures In Eating: The Wildest Meals We’ve Had

Food should be an adventure. It should expand your horizons and heighten all your senses. That’s what we think, anyway, and so our staff is always trying new things so they can enrich the restaurant. Most of the time it’s wonderful, but sometimes? It gets a little wild. We surveyed our people to find out the craziest things they’ve ever eaten, and the answers will make you realize that they’re not just talented at running a restaurant; they’re pretty brave, too! Julio Martinez, Executive Chef at Brimstone Pines: Sea Urchin Better known from high-school science experiments, the sea urchin has a strangely buttery flavor and a slick texture. It’s not always an easy thing to eat raw, but cooked or stuffed this marine delicacy packs a load of flavor. Mariane Munhoz, Manager at Brimstone Pines: Frog Legs & Ostrich If you’re from the south,...

Four Corners: Latin Flavors at Brimstone

This article is part of a series, “Four Corners,” that explores the way our chefs are inspired by traditional cuisines throughout the world.   Here in South Florida, the tastes of Latin America are never far away. Garlic, peppers, and the smell of homemade sauce are the keys to childhood memories all over the state. When a guest sits at our table, we want to bring those warm feelings to the surface. That’s why you’ll find accents of those warm, homey cuisines all throughout our menu. Sometimes the inspiration is obvious, like with our Peruvian Ceviche and jalapeño cream, but sometimes, like with our Coconut Crusted Lobster Roll, the touch is a little more subtle. Read on to see how these traditional flavors come to life to make our unique and adventurous menu possible.   Mahi Napoleon Mahi Napoleon is a Brimstone original that puts...
