Ask any local in Miami what their favorite meal is and they will probably give you the same answer – brunch. If you’re planning to fly over for the weekend, take a look at this list of the best places to brunch in Miami.
La Mar by Gastón Acurio
If money is no object, then a brunch at the elite La Mar should be on your itinerary. They have the most epic brunch you’ll ever experience. The price is $135/person and you get several choices of spread like sushi, salads, ceviches, causas, seafood, empanadas, grilled meats and many others. You think that’s more than what you can handle? Think again. There’s still the Chaufa Aeropuerto and mains like the famed lomo saltado. After indulging in all that food, be sure to have enough room for dessert because the Dessert Retablo is not to be missed.
Rosie’s: The Backyard
Southern food is a great option for brunch and at Rosie’s you get specially curated meat by no less than Chefs Akino and Jamila West so you get a fair amount of soul food and elevated classics. The menu includes Wild Mushroom Polenta with poached egg, charred kale, parmesan and herb gremolata; Chicken & Waffles served with butter pickles, bread and calabrian chili oil; as well as fluffy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes topped with crushed pistachios, sweet macerated berries and more ricotta.
Orno is a farm-to-table restaurant and it uses ingredients grown in Chef Niven Patel’s farm. Their brunch menu is fairly new and it takes a refreshing take on popular brunch items like Belgian waffle which they serve with maple crème fraiche and honeycrisp apple; grilled Wagyu steak with chimichurri, heirloom tomato and wood-roasted eggs; and a housemade pastrami benedict served with poached farm egg in hollandaise sauce, and latkes. Oh and did we mention that they also serve bottomless Moet Brut and Rose champagne?
Klaw serves brunch on Sundays for $85 per person and this already includes 7 to 9 dishes plus the main entrée. Expect delectable options like Brown Butter Waffles, Soft Scramble with shaved truffle and King Crab Roast. For an extra charge you can also add Norwegian King Crab to your meal. If you enjoy eating a good meal at Red Lobster, you’re going to enjoy brunch here even more.
Sadelle’s Coconut Grove
This very popular all-day breakfast spot made its way to Coconut Grove and people couldn’t wait to try the bagel towers they’re best known for. But aside from the great menu options like triple-decker sandwiches and sliced to order salmon, Sadelle’s is also a leisurely place to meet with family and friends.
The 27 Restaurant features brunch every Sunday. Chef Jimmy Lebron and his team whip up mouthwatering meals like Oyster Mushrooms and Labneh, Shakshuka, Latke Benedict and Kimchi Fried Rice.
South America’s most popular cure for hangover is called Sancocho, it’s a hearty meat stew combined with tubers, potatoes and other veggies. The brunch set up at Phuc Yea includes the Sancocho Pho, and this dish taps traditional Vietnamese broth along with rice noodles and of course sriracha. Plus you must try the Fried Chicken Banh Mi and croissant French toast drizzled with coconut rum.
