Owner/Executive Chef Jeffrey Brana of Restaurant Brana in Coral Gables describes his menu as “modern with influences of old Florida.”
His menu brims with freshly grown herbs, spices and even the type of oranges that Chef Brana remembers picking from his grandmother’s backyard growing up in South Florida. Fond of Florida’s natural bounty, Chef Brana showcases gourmet seafood, meats and vegetables that live up to the definition of traditional American cuisine. Although the menu changes seasonally, it includes regular standouts such as beef rib steak and Key West shrimp marinated in orange juice and Sicilian olive oil. Chef Brana, recognized as a “rising star chef” (StarChefs 2004) and his wife Anna, previously marketing manager of award-winning Norman’s Restaurant in Miami provide exceptional service and focus tremendously on creating cuisine that is suited to each customer’s liking.
This may just be the best restaurant in town. -The Miami Herald
If your idea of a good time is sampling extraordinary wines from small, domestic producers and dining on exquisite cuisine, much of it made with locally produced foodstuffs, Restaurant Brana is nirvana. -Fine Dining Review
