Chef Richard Hales has given birth to a restaurant using his travels and love for Asian flavors and extreme fondness for the cuisine as his inspiration. Blackbrick offers both new and classic Chinese dishes using modern techniques.
By Brenda Benoit
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 at Blackbrick, 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.
