New to Miami Spice in 2017 in the much beloved weekend meal: brunch. For just $23, guests can dine on arguably the best meal at the week at upwards of 20 restaurants around town, and to help narrow down those choices here are the five best options listed in alphabetical order.
And if Miami Spice dinner or lunch recommendations are needed those can be found here and here.
While Japanese cuisine isn’t exactly something that pops into mind when thinking of brunch, it certainly serves as a good alternative to waffle filled meals. Begin the meal with robata grilled corn bathed in a yuzu-togarashi butter, before moving onto a chicken and rice omelet or a pork belly and steamed buns Benedict. And for dessert opt for the black sesame seed pavlova, a meringue based dessert filled with Chantilly pastry cream and grapes. (Available Sundays 12:30 to 3 p.m., 5241 NW 8th Avenue, Doral)
This Downtown hybrid Persian French spot features a brunch menu filled with plenty of the restaurant’s favorite dishes. Start the meal off with a hearty bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich housed inside a kaiser roll, before moving onto the bucatini carbonara, and finishing with its baked French toast topped with berries, pistachio, crema and maple syrup that could stand as meal on its own. (Available Sundays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., 1035 North Miami Avenue)
Anyone who has ever experienced a brunch at Seaspice knows it’s quite the ordeal – and usually a costly one at that. Part party, part mid-day meal, Seaspice offers an impressive selection for just $23, which is usually the price of a drink at this Miami River hotspot. Start with bacon wrapped plantains or the waygu-filled dumplings, before moving onto one of its three benedict options or a power waffle topped with hazelnut butter for the healthy inclined. And for dessert, a mango mouse or peaches tossed in champagne and topped on almond cake will finish the meal on a good note. (Available Sundays noon to 3 p.m., 422 NW River Drive)
Get a taste of Cuba at this Miami Spice brunch. Start the meal off with Cuban gyoza made with wagyu ground beef or malanga croquetas, then move on to the Cuban plantain omelet made with sweet ripped plantains, ropa vieja, and smoked ham or chorizo. Finish the meal with a miso flan topped with ginger and a rum sugar cane foam. (Available Saturday and Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2530 Ponce de Leon Boulevard)
While brunch may seem like the remedy after a late night at Sweet Liberty, this acclaimed watering hole serves an impressive brunch menu to boot. Start the meal on a healthier note with items like chopped salad or Greek yogurt, followed by a duck benedict or its French toast. And for dessert? A good ol’ slice of American pie. (Available Sundays noon to 5 p.m., 237 20th Street, Miami Beach)
