Your guide to the best of Miami’s din­ing, drink­ing, and nightlife.

Time is of the essence when it comes to the Brazil­ian-meets-peru­vian-meets-ja­panese fu­sion restau­rant Sushisamba. Take, for ex­am­ple, the aptly named Samba hour, which hap­pens not once but twice a day—thurs­day through Sun­day from 4 to 7 PM and 11 to close (ei­ther 1 or 2 AM, de­pend­ing on the night). Ex­pect $5 caipir­in­has (the na­tional drink of Brazil) and $7 spicy gin­ger mar­ti­nis and sushi yel­low­tail jalapeño rolls, as well as samba dancers and live mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment along with an eclec­tic crowd cel­e­brat­ing life in Miami. Sound like a good time? It is, and so is the week­end brunch, fea­tur­ing bot­tom­less Champagne show­ers, quinoa pan­cakes, and Brazil­ian fei­joada, a black bean and trio of meat (shred­ded pork, seared beef, and carnes asada) stew chock­full of white rice, col­lard greens, farofa, and fresh or­ange slices. You know what they say: Vi­ta­min C is the ul­ti­mate hang­over cure, es­pe­cially when com­bined with some hair of the dog. 600 Lin­coln Road, Miami Beach, 305-673-5337; sushisamba.com
