Swan's mint green & pink dining room
Swan is the ultimate trendy spot for brunch

Swan and Bar Bevy

When nightlife impresario David Grutman and Pharrell Williams – yes, that Pharrell – teamed up to create a restaurant in Miami’s chic Design District, you knew they were going to put together a dynamic destination serving up bold flavors. Swan is an indoor/outdoor restaurant with a focus on locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, but it’s clear from the minute you arrive that the instagrammable space is nearly as much of a draw as the menu. Order decadent brunch items such as bourbon cinnamon rolls with caramel and sea salt; guava and cheese French toast with Maria cookies; ricotta pancakes; or king crab Benedict (a reimagined take on the classic poached egg dish).

When a craving for seafood sets in during brunch time, head to Mignonette, where brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. The restaurant is renowned for its oysters, so try a flight, or opt for the seafood tower for more variety. If you’re in the mood for standard brunch fare, pair your oysters with something from the “Eggy Stuff” menu or the “Sweet & Bready” section. Sandwiches, salads and more seafood favorites are also available.

Chicken dish at Ariete
Ariete's brunch menu includes unique spins on traditional fare


Ariete is a favorite indoor/outdoor spot for locals in Coconut Grove, and no wonder. Its extensive menu features brunch classics with a Miami twist. Choose the frita Benedict (a Cuban-style burger patty served with crunchy potato sticks and hollandaise); blintzes with whipped cream cheese and a port wine-guava gastrique; plantain polenta fries with a preserved lemon aioli; or the fried cobia with grits. Absolutely do not skip the cocktails. A hand-shaken piña colada might just be the brunch drink you never knew you needed. Walk it off afterward with a scenic stroll to nearby Biscayne Bay.

Start with the watermelon salad – watermelon cubes tossed in lime crema, cotija cheese, cilantro and jalapeño make it an undeniable star of the menu. Move on to larger plates such as a malted dulce de leche waffle; surf and turf eggs Benedict with poached lobster and marinated skirt steak; or chicken and black truffle gnocchi. If you’re in the mood for the ultimate brunch cocktail, sip on the Breakfast All Day, made with Aberfeldy 12, Honey Nut Cheerios syrup, black walnut bitters and bee pollen.
