Balans, Mary Brickell Village

Late-night-brunch and crowd-pleasing-fusion spot Balans has opened an outpost for downtown office refugees in Mary Brickell Village. The menu's got a smattering of Asian, American and Greek classic (like the feta salad, below).
There's a happy hour everyday (except during holidays) from 3pm-7pm, with 2 for 1 cocktails, half price beer and wine by the glass and $2 off entrees. It's open until 4am on weekends—but the real draws are the glass bathroom stalls that go magically opaque when locked. Who isn't impressed by foggy windows?
901 S. Miami Ave (between SW. 9th and 10th).

It's all fun and games until the fog-contraption goes haywire mid-pee.

Sorry I've been completely AWOL.

The two months since last I saw you have been... well, they're over.

Holy Lord, another Balans! I used to love their 10 p.m. to midnight happy hour and the bathrooms are primo.

I've eaten at the Balans in London a few times, most recently after a crazy night at a gay club in Soho. It's kind of a little less chichi than the one on Lincoln. It's like a yummy, decked out Denny's. But I LOVE Balans either way. Just like home.
