The Brickell Brunch

03/02/2016

With its melting pot of cultures and plenty of residents with income to spare, Miami has seen its culinary scene explode over the past decade, particularly along its southern tier. The rise of luxury condos in Brickell has helped put that Miami neighborhood on the map as a place to be, and the place to eat. Catering to the neighborhood’s trendy residents are new nightlife venues, museums, and a slew of restaurants that serve up the most important meal of the week: brunch. Weekend brunches provide great opportunities to relax over a meal, catch up with friends, and see and be seen. Look no further than these Brickell hotspots for the best brunch the neighborhood has to offer.

Atelier Monnier | 848 Brickell Avenue #120

For the pastry lover, the perfect brunch can be found at Brickell’s charming Atelier Monnier. This chic patisserie serves buttery brioche, skillfully prepared egg dishes, and decadent croissant sandwiches each weekend to their loyal brunch crowd.

Golden Fig | 1250 South Miami Avenue

If you like food with a great story behind it, you’ll love Golden Fig. This New American restaurant is committed to creating dishes that feature fresh, natural, and – whenever possible – local ingredients. You’ll have a truly educated palate after reading about the provenance of every component of your meal on the Fig’s menu, whether you’re enjoying a granola parfait made with grain from Anson Mills in South Carolina or croquettes studded with Virginia ham. 

Batch Gastropub | 30 SW 12th Street

Located just steps from many of Brickell’s highlights such as the Brickell Flatiron condos or The Shops at Mary Brickell Village, Batch Gastropub is a convenient meeting point with a menu that satisfies all tastes. Kick off your weekend with bottomless sangria, bellinis, and mimosas while dining on delicious fare like fruit salad with house-made granola and perfectly prepared omelets.

American Social | 690 SW 1st Court

Enjoy a fabulous brunch in a setting that boasts ambiance to spare at Brickell’s American Social. Don’t let the lounge-like vibe of the restaurant’s mood lighting and eclectic décor fool you; expertly executed brunch classics like huevos rancheros, duck confit hash, and chicken and waffles attract a devoted morning crowd.

Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita | 1000 South Miami Avenue

This magical terraced eatery featuring gorgeous views of Brickell is the perfect place to enjoy an elevated brunch al fresco. While the décor at Dolores is undeniably posh, the brunch fare served here is casual, with the Caesar salads, shrimp and grits, and egg sandwiches favorites from the menu.

Whether you prefer steak and eggs or are in pursuit of the perfect flaky croissant, Brickell can’t be beat when it comes to brunch.
