The long, lazy, boozy brunch is a beautiful thing. Something I should take advantage of more often. Luckily a few worthy candidates have popped around town to add to my brunch rotation.
First up, there's the recently-launched organic buffet helmed by Essensia’s new chef Frank Jeannetti. Request an outdoor table on the veranda at the Deco hotel and work your way through custom omelets, whole wheat waffles, pasta and risotto stations and a dessert table piled with cookies, mousses, tarts and pots de crème. An added bonus: a complimentary glass of Lamarca Prosecco or a mimosa.
Sundays, 11:30am-3pm, $39, 3025 Collins Ave, 305-908-5458.
And now the Angler’s presents a tomato juice-fueled brunch-nanza with their unlimited Bloody Mary Bar where $14 grants you the run of a tableside cart of fixings including Chianti Cured Salami. If you’re in the Mimosa mood, there’s also a $14 champagne cart to experiment with. Oh, the food? Try banana Nutella pancakes and steak and eggs with shallot fries.
Saturdays and Sundays, 11am-5pm, 660 Washington Ave, 305-534-9600.
