Los Fuegos at Faena Miami Beach

Want to break away from the traditional eggs, bacon and pancakes? Add some fire to your Sunday with the “Asado Buffet Brunch” at Los Fuegos at Faena Miami Beach, an Argentinian grill in Mid Beach known for live-fire cooking. An “asado” is an open-fire barbecue. It’s at the center of major social events in Argentina, where friends and family gather around traditional dishes and spend an afternoon catching up. At Los Fuegos, dine indoors our outside by the pool to savor the smoky goodness at the buffet-style asado that features a variety of South American-inspired dishes like tender slow-cooked ribeye, wood-oven porchetta and a tempting dessert tower.
