Brickell's Best Kept Brunch Secret: Stanzione 87
If you’re driving too quickly down 8th street as you get into Brickell, there’s a good chance you’ll pass right by one of the most underrated restaurants in the area. Stanzione 87 is run by husband and wife team, Franco and Ashley Stanzione, and is home to some of the best pizza in Miami. It’s a Neapolitan spot, with an oven straight out of Naples and fresh made mozzarella every day.
Recently, Stanzione 87 launched a weekend brunch service that needs to be on your radar immediately. The menu features some amazing breakfast pizzas and a killer wood fired bread egg sandwich. It’s a simple six item menu, but it’s everything you need to start the day off right.
Pizzas include the Shakshuka with egg, tomato, peppers, oregano, garlic, chilies, and cilantro or a play on a bagel and lox with the What a Mensch topped with salmon, mascarpone, lemon, capers, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.
The egg sandwich is possibly one of the best I’ve ever had, and is stacked high with prosciutto cotto and super fluffy cheesy eggs on bread made in the wood oven.
For the sweet brunch eaters, there’s the Neapolitan French Toast made with wood fired challah served with mascarpone cream and fresh berries. And if you’re trying to be healthy there’s the goat’s milk yogurt and granola. Wash it all down with a Watermelon Fizz, it’s like a mimosa but with fresh watermelon. So light and refreshing. If you get really lucky, you might stop in on a day where Ashley is testing dessert recipes and could find yourself with a slice of olive oil cake!
Brunch is every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. If you miss brunch, you’re still making the right choice by stopping by for one of their delicious pizzas.
