Beef Tongue Tartine at Ariete

In Miami, brunch is a weekly celebration. Brunch is a way to kick back and enjoy the weekend – it is, after all, a meal that is reserved for Saturdays and Sundays. Whether you’re looking for an indoor spot to cozy up and enjoy a mimosa, or an al fresco brunch experience with a breeze and a Bloody Mary in hand, Miami has a brunch for you.

Swan

When nightlife impresario David Grutman and Pharrell – yes, that Pharrell – team up to create a restaurant in Miami’s chic Design District, you know they’re going to put together a stylish weekly soiree. Swan is an indoor/outdoor restaurant with a focus on locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, but it’s clear from the minute you step inside that the photogenic interior is as much of a draw as the menu. Order decadent brunch items like ricotta pancakes, the Wagyu burger, or the king crab Benedict, a reimagined version of the classic poached egg dish.

    Mignonette

    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.

      Ariete

      Ariete's brunch is an indoor/outdoor favorite for locals in Coconut Grove. The extensive menu includes brunch classics with a Miami twist, like the frita Benedict (a frita is a Cuban-style burger patty typically served with crunchy potato sticks), quiche with plantains, guava pancakes and a hash with a Latin spin to it. Absolutely do not skip the cocktails. Maybe a daiquiri is the brunch drink you never knew you needed. Walk it off afterward with a scenic walk to nearby Biscayne Bay.

        Zuma Miami

        Step into Zuma Miami at the Kimpton EPIC Hotel in Downtown Miami and you’ll be wowed by the soaring ceilings, the modern design and the elegant restraint of this Japanese-inspired space – but let go of any sense of restraint when you dig into this brunch buffet with bottomless drinks. The dining room is lined with brunch stations ranging from izakaya-style dishes to elevated versions of brunch classics. Choose from classic, signature and premium set prices for your party at this sumptuous brunch, one of the most decadent in town.

          Fontana at The Biltmore

          The Biltmore Hotel - Coral Gables is a historic, enchanting hotel with a brunch at its onsite restaurant, Fontana, to match. Set in Coral Gables, surrounded by an interesting mix of architecture and lush tree-lined streets, brunch in Fontana’s courtyard is a reflection of the area’s traditional sophistication. Enjoy brunch classics as well as sushi, pasta, tapas, a carving station and desserts, with unlimited sparkling wine, bellinis and live music in the background.

            27 Restaurant

            For a brunch that’s equal parts boho-vibes and foodie-experience, make a reservation at 27 Restaurant located across from the pool at the Freehand Miami in Miami Beach's Mid Beach neighborhood. This historic house has been converted into one of Miami’s hippest hangouts, with indoor and outdoor seating available. The menu is focused on fresh local produce and flavors. Ordering dishes to split as a table is encouraged. The arepa platter can’t be missed, and the shakshuka, smoked salmon croquettes and local fish sandwich are also favorites. The restaurant’s onsite bar is famous for its inventive mixology. Order from the creative menu of drinks, also available in pitchers to kick start your day.

              KYU

              Wynwood is all about a creative energy. KYU serves a brunch menu that’s fit for the area. This modern Asian eatery has taken dishes you already love and put a spin on them for its Sunday brunch: eggs Benedict with yuzu hollandaise or soft-shell crab, steak & eggs with kimchee, and buttermilk pancakes topped with local fruit. Those who are more interested in bypassing the breakfast-y part of brunch can order from the regular lunch menu. Bottomless beverage options are available, as are brunch cocktails like the signature Kimchi Bloody Mary.
