Celebrate Burger Month with Wine at Big Easy Wine Bar Miami

 In Features

The laid-back yet sophisticated Big Easy Winebar & Grill is located in downtown Miami’s Brickell City Centre. Big Easy refers to the nickname of South African-born golf-icon Ernie Els, (rather than New Orleans), who has brought the flavors of South Africa’s Western Cape region to the Magic City.

To celebrate Burger Month, the Big Easy Winebar is offering a special lunch promotion. For $20, guests can choose any burger on the menu paired with a choice of draft beer or glass of wine.  The Big Easy has some luscious proprietary red wines -by the glass or flight, to pair with their hearty grilled burger sandwiches and sliders.  We also found a couple of cocktails that marry nicely as well.
