Brickell City Centre

Big Easy Winebar & Grill is an unpretentious yet sophisticated dining destination hailing from the stunning Western Cape region of South Africa – inspired by the lifestyle and spirit of South Africa’s most recognized export, Golf-icon Ernie Els (whose nickname is "Big Easy", based on his easygoing personality and effortless golf swing. No – there is no connection to New Orleans

It is a culinary experience that is first and foremost a superb grill restaurant featuring outstanding meats and fresh local fish, yet inspired by Ernie’s travels around the world and his two homes: the cultural crossroads of his South African Heritage and his family residence a few miles north of Miami in Jupiter, Florida

Watch our journey to bring to you this exciting new restaurant concept hailing from South Africa in the video below.


Casual and easygoing – it is a place to take the family, the loved ones or friends and business associate for an informal and fun experience.


An ingenious word that is truly missing from the English language: sociable with friends, amicable, affably companionable, friendly, convivial, cordial.


BIG EASY is not a fine dining or "destination" restaurant, but a place for every day enjoyment – equally as much for a casual business dinner, a romantic dinner with the loved one or the entire family ...


BIG EASY has none of the formality or pricing that is often associated with fancy restaurants; it is fun and surprisingly affordable.


A melting pot of cultures, food and flavors. Fabulous steaks from the grill, bold flavors with fun menu choices


A warm restaurant featuring wood, brick, leather and other traditional elements can easily be perceived as old fashioned. But BIG EASY is very much today, timeless and full of vibe.


BIG EASY restaurants are bold, designed with a distinct residential feel, substantial furniture, warm and rich. The same spirit is reflected in the presentation and flavor of the food and many of our wines.


The Big Easy Winebar & Grill is a busy place. It is not a special occasion restaurant, but an accessible, refined-yet casual restaurant – a Grillroom with a twist. The extensive small plate and wine bar is perfect for the after work crowd, while the open kitchen restaurant and sizzling grill features some of the finest steaks in town.

We don’t believe in theming our menu – we see the world as a global village and thus we love housemade pasta as much as a a well made curry. Our succulent steaks live side by side the Big Easy Signature Burger selection. Some of our dishes proudly feature Ernie’s South African Heritage - Bobotie Spring Rolls (sweet ground beef curry with chutney) or Boerewors (lean farmer sausage), others celebrate Florida’s sensational seafood and Latin influence.

The menu is all about sophisticated comfort – everyday dishes prepared with farm-fresh ingredients of the highest quality combined with spices, herbs and ingredients from the melting pot of the world
