Dinner Party at El Tucán. For the past three months, El Tucán in Brickell kept its doors shut. But now the club has reopened as a restaurant and lounge offering an authentic Miami dinner party instead of live cabaret. The remodeled 150-seat, two-level eatery embodies a tropical vibe via sofas in feline prints, textured wood, antique mirrors, advanced LED wall displays of lush greenery, and crystal fixtures. On the ground floor, the DJ booth on the center stage leads the entertainment. Guests on the second floor can cozy up in chestnut and leopard-print banquettes to enjoy entertainment that includes aerialists, singers, and dancers. El Tucán's original prix fixe has also been replaced. The new à la carte menu includes interpretations of Asian-inspired specialties such as wagyu beef sliders with caramelized onions, aged Manchego cheese, and quail egg ($24); tuna pizza with truffle aioli and shaved black truffle ($28.50); and yellowtail tacos with microcilantro and guacamole ($19.50). 1111 SW First Ave., Miami; 305-535-0065; eltucanmiami.com. Open Wednesday through Saturday 7 p.m. to late.
