Brunch is a Saturday and/or Sunday must in these parts—as well it should be. Here are three eateries doing right by the weekend ritual.
Brioche French toast from Boulud Sud's new Sunday brunch.
Wynwood’s rooftop restaurant is bound to solidify its area favorite status with its new Mediterranean-inspired Saturday and Sunday brunch (11AM to 4PM). Staples include baklava pancakes, wild-caught salmon tartar and the sheftalia breakfat plate (two eggs any style with lamb kebab, tomato and pita). Booze is covered with sangria and mojito pitchers, as well as the Bubbles Tray, which features a variety of Champagnes and sparkling wines served with fresh berries, orange juice, peach nectar juice and apple cider. 2103 NW Second Ave., Miami, 305.573.5778
Daniel Boulud himself curated this Sunday brunch (11AM-3PM), which offers diners items a la carte or prix-fixe with three courses plus bottomless beverages for $55 a head. Highlights include French scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, Moroccan shakshouka with manouri, kale and a slow-poached egg and ricotta pancakes with Chantilly. Cocktails include the Old Cuban, a mix of rum, mint, sparkling wine and bitters. JW Marriott Marquis, 255 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami, 305.421.8800
Lobster Bar Sea Grille
Lobster is the main ingredient at this new Sunday brunch (11:30AM to 3:30PM), which offers both a la carte and prix-fixe options to diners. For $42 per person, the fixe option includes a choice of mains that includes Belgian waffle and lobster morsels, whole chili lobster toast or Nova Scotia whole braised lobster Benedict. That brunch option concludes with passion fruit cremeaux, profiteroles or Greek yogurt with thyme honey. For $15 extra, visitors can have bottomless bloody marys, mimosas, Bellinis and Prosecco. The a la carte version of the brunch features options such as the shellfish tower, lobster morsels, whole fish of the day and a variety of steaks. 404 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305.377.2675
