Chef Richard Hales has given birth to a restaurant using his travels and love for Asian flavors and extreme fondness for this cuisine as his inspiration. Blackbrick offers both new and classic Chinese dishes using modern techniques.
Chef Hales grew up eating Asian food at home all the time. He has lived in Hong Kong and travelled all over extensively throughout the region. His goal has always been to bring Asian food to Florida, dishes that are not common, that are different and interesting.
We went for Brunch, which happens on Saturdays and Sundays. Everything we had was good. Special mention goes to the Fried Chicken that came with the waffle. The chicken was truly exceptional. Seasoned with a special, secret marinade and served with a scallion-ginger sauce that was delicious beyond description.
Blackbrick is a full-service, sit-down restaurant with a bar whimsically decorated by the chef himself with pictures of his heroes hanging on the wall, all dressed in Russian general attire.
I am coming back here for lunch so that I can have more of the dishes offered at Blackbrik.
