A little bacon and bubbly make for a perfect Sunday Funday

52 Weekends of Brunch at CORSAIR kitchen & bar

CORSAIR kitchen & bar’s “The 52” brunch is an ever-changing buffet-style spread of our favorite meal of the day, switching out every weekend of the year (hence, the name). Rotations focus on brunch classics, like egg skillets, egg sandwiches, and açai bowls, to name a few. Mimosas are available year-round (because, why not?) and to stick with the theme, this all-you-can-eat meal is priced at $52. For an extra $8, diners are granted access to the 52-ingredient Bloody Mary Bar which includes yummy add-ons like thick cut bacon, jumbo shrimp, plantain chips, and hot sauce, allowing you to never settle for anything but the best.

Sunday Brunch at Isabelle’s Grill Room and Garden

Nestled inside the Ritz Carlton, this chic new restaurant is named in honor of Isabella Peacock, one of Coconut Grove’s earliest settlers. The classy interior is steeped in warm palettes and rich woods, inspiring intimate, meaningful conversation. However, it is the trellised outdoor garden terrace with oversized potted plants and comfortable outdoor seating that draws in those seeking South Florida alfresco dining—particularly when it comes to Sunday brunch. Begin with the bottomless Bloody Marys or mimosas ($22), then dive into offerings like the Chicken and Waffles served with jalapeño honey, the Challah French Toast with Nutella and bananas, or the Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes with blueberry compote and crème fraîche.

Brunch O’ Clock at Sardinia

Since opening Sardinia in 2006, Restaurateur Antonio “Tony” Gallo and Chef Pietro Vardeu have won over foodies time and time again with authentic Sardinian cuisine and a collection of wine most sommeliers would covet. Lunch and dinner here is always a good idea, but brunch is an event all its own. Served weekends from 11:30am-4pm, the menu encompasses the classics, like traditional Eggs Benedict and Omelets any way you like, plus brunchified Mediterranean dishes like Spaghetti Carbonara with eggs and wild boar bacon. The best part? You can sip mimosas, Bloody Marys, and Aperol spritzes all day long for less than $8! Or really indulge with bottles of Veuve Clicquot Brut for $50 and bottles of rosé for $85 until 6pm.

From now through September 30, checkout your favorite restaurants—like StripSteak by Michael Mina, db Bistro Moderne, Tamarina and 200+ more—for lunch or dinner, and get three-course prix-fixe meals for $23 and $39, respectively. For a real treat, head to one of our favorites, GK Bistronomie {218 NW 25th Street, Wynwood; 786.477.5151} and find modern Peruvian plates, like lobster empanadas and crispy pork belly with sundried potato “stew,” on the Spice menu.

Barley an American Brasserie Opens Its Doors
A new restaurant, Barley an American Brasserie {8945 SW 72 Place, Miami; 786.623.6733}, the latest culinary venture by Chef Jorgie Ramos, opened its doors this week. Located in Downtown Dadeland, this haute gastropub will serve rustic Americana comfort food with Latin and Asian influences: from charred octopus with seaweed, miso aioli, and a farro salad, to braised beef tongue with yucca mofongo and sofrito salad, lamb neck filet doused in a horseradish tzatziki, and the Latin burger topped with chorizo cantimpalo, sweet plantains, manchego, and a chimichurri aioli. Go there for its daily mac ‘n’ cheese rotation and specialty craft beer, cocktail and boutique wine menu, and stay for the relaxed vibes and hearty, creative cuisine. 

National Pizza Month Starts Saturday, October 1st
This Saturday is the start of an entire month dedicated to pizza – and that’s something we believe everyone should celebrate. Don’t know where to go? Try Dolce Italian {1690 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 786.975.2550}, on Miami Beach. It has a Tartufata Pizza that puts a unique twist on the classic cheese variety with savory blanca cheese, speck, spicy salami and truffle. Another delicious option is La Moderna {1874 Bay Road, Miami Beach; 786.717.7274}, where you can enjoy their traditional, but unparalleled, Margherita Pizza in a casual-chic setting. 

Ocio Launches New Happy Hour
Miami’s favorite new escape, Ocio {3399 NW 72nd Avenue, Doral; 786.360.4468} is unveiling a happy hour at its secluded and chic retreat. Tucked away in Doral, this Italian-driven locale invites guests to come on Thursday and Friday nights, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., and get a complimentary appetizer with the purchase of a glass of wine or beer. With your glass, delight in plates like fried mozzarella with homemade marinara sauce, Antipasto (salami, capicola, prosciutto, parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers), or the Octopus Carpaccio, thinly-sliced octopus with capers and steeped in an aromatic lemon vinaigrette.

Sunday Brunch at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar
Between 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Sundays, there’s nowhere better to be than brunch at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar {2550 NW 2nd Avenue, Wynwood; 305.722.8959}. Order Latin-inspired dishes like the Wynwood Benedict with poached egg, crabmeat, chipotle hollandaise sauce and polenta, or the Tostada with a sunny side-up egg, tomato puree, black beans, cojita cheese and crema. You can never go wrong with the locale’s Steak & Eggs, a grilled skirt steak served with a fried egg and yucca frita, and whatever you do, pair it with a breakfast cocktail. Our personal favorites are the Prosecco cocktails—you get a nice glass of Prosecco flavored with your choice of Hibiscus, Palomimosa, Applish or Blue Pisco.

After the success of its first Kendall location, which opened in late 2015, Pisco y Nazca opened a second location in Doral in June 2016.
Catering to Miami’s summer temperatures, Pisco y Nazca recently added new refreshing drinks and specials to its daily “Hora Loca” happy hour and weekend brunch. Along with the locale’s signature Peruvian cocktails, diners can now stay cool with one of three Peruvian Sangria Pitchers: El Shandy, Sangria Peruana, or Sangria Brava.
For a taste of these sweet sippers, head to either location during weekend brunch or Hora Loca, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m. daily. Go during the latter and order one of each pitcher… rumor has it they’re 50% off.

tamarina brunch

When it comes to Sunday brunch, we’ve always struggled to find a place that can please everyone. Until Now.

Tamarina {600 Brickell Avenue, Brickell; 305.579.1888}, a little slice of Italy in the heart of Brickell that’s known for its authentic Italian and Mediterranean dishes, fresh ingredients, and exceptional crudo bar, recently introduced its Sunday brunch, a carefully planned buffet experience that, no matter your dining companions, is sure to satisfy.

When we say buffet, we hope you’re not picturing a cruise ship-style smorgasbord of endless gluttony. Tamarina’s buffet is more in the style of a royal banquet, featuring the best of the best breakfast and lunch offerings designed to wow your senses—and taste buds. This is sophisticated brunching, but without the fussiness.

tamarina brunch

Everything on offer has been prepared that day, with chefs on hand waiting to replenish the second supply looks low.

tamarina brunch

Start off at the eggs and waffle station, where you can choose your own fresh ingredients to have an omelette prepared the way you like or have your waffle iron-pressed on the spot, served with powdered sugar, maple syrup, and your choice of berries.

tamarina brunch

Next, make your way to the opposite end of the dining room for Italian station, featuring a salad bar with garden-fresh leafy greens and veggies, an assortment of fresh-from-the-oven breads, and a selection of artisanal charcuterie meats and cheeses.

tamarina brunch

Be sure to leave room on your plate for more of the main event: dozens of seafood delicacies like freshly shucked oysters, tuna tartare, cured salmon, and more. There’s also a carving station and standard breakfast meats like bacon and sausage. Oh, and let’s not forget the “Pasta a la Minute”: two types of homemade pasta prepared to order upon request. (The day we dined, the pastas were two types of ravioli, both equally satisfying.)

tamarina brunch

At the center of it all is the decadent dessert table, featuring mounds of pastries, from scones to muffins to croissants to brownie-type concoctions of chocolaty goodness and Italian staples such as tiramisù and panna cotta. But the highlight here was hands-down the bomboloni, traditional Italian doughnuts filled with Nutella and topped with powdered sugar.


Don’t worry if you can’t fit everything on your plate at once. You can revisit the buffet as many times as you’d like. Friendly servers are on-hand to take your drink orders and to make sure that  your water and said drinks are adequately replenished. For just $35 per person, have your choice of bottomless bubbles (whether in the form of Champagne or mimosas or Bellinis, both mixed with homemade Italian sorbet of juice—addictively refreshing).

tamarina brunch

Bloody Marys are also a specialty, as is the sangría, which is served in a 1-1/2-liter punch bowl. Cold-pressed juices and coffee drinks are also available à la carte.

Brunch can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the covered patio (our recommendation), where large tables and comfy couches make for a nice alfresco lounge space. This is also where the band, the French Horn Collective, a five-man folk/jazz ensemble, serenades guests with catchy acoustic tunes that are sung mostly in French.

So Sit back. Relax. Listen. Indulge. Savor. Imbibe. This is Sunday brunch is everything you could ever want—and much, much more.
