Miamians love their Brunch. Eating outdoors, sun shining, and day drinking makes brunch feel like possibly the favorite meal of the week.
After a night out at the clubs, or just hanging with friends binge watching Netflix, going out to brunch is a sure cure for a hangover or a way to meet up with over a casual, relaxed and in many cases, a “boozy” meal.
Not always the typical “All You Can Eat Buffet” found in local area hotels, here are some of MIAbites best brunch bets on Miami Beach: Many offer only Sunday brunch so always good to check ahead to confirm.
Sweet Liberty Food and Drink- The popular Happy Hour and late-night haunt( and newly crowned Best Cocktail Bar at Tales of The Cocktail in New Orleans) now offers a “Rise & Dine” weekend brunch with some traditional and not so traditional dishes. Start with the Tuna Tostada with diced Bluefin tuna, crispy leeks, and chipotle aioli, the Eggs & Grits offer Southern comfort food and the Stuffed French Toast – cornflake crusted brioche, fresh bananas, vanilla cream, Kentucky whiskey caramel, and Vermont maple syrup with little chocolate pearls on top is a decadent sweet way to start the day.

Hakkasan- Looking for something different? Pre-fixe Dim Sum Lunch at this beautiful restaurant in the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel is available every Saturday and Sunday from 12 PM - 3:00 PM. $45 per guest includes dishes like a variety of steamed and fried dumplings, baby pak choi fried rice with egg and choice of BBQ ribs or Szechuan diced chicken.
