Who doesn’t love Sunday Brunch in South Beach? It makes a great meal… maybe the best one you’ve eaten all week, promotes relaxation mixed with good company and even better conversation, and of course it gives a good reason to sip on some tasty beverages as the ones from last night are still wear off.
New to Sunday Brunch in South Beach
Sunday Brunch in South Beach has a new player on the block, and it is one not to be missed. Macchialina Taverna Rustica has been open just over a year, but is already a favorite eating spot to many, critics included… and here, you eat like a local. As Chic Place At Lincoln, a nearby short-term apartment rental, already knows, it’s great to feel like a local, even if you are just visiting. They have boasted about Macchialina in their SEE, PLAY, EAT section of their website.
Macchialina is a fresh take on a rustic Italian restaurant and gives a New York feel. Their delicious dinner menu has a wide range of antipasti and pasta along with other snacks, sliced meats, and entrees. Some fan-favorite plates including creamy polenta with sausage ragu and cipollini onions; or Mediterranean octopus.
But let’s move on to what we are really hear to talk about… BRUNCH! Their official debut of this fantastic meal will be this Sunday, September 22, 2013, after finally succumbing to peer pressure and giving the customers what they want. Talented chef and part owner, Michael Pirolo, who is responsible for this top-notch food menu was actually the one trying to hold off serving brunch… well because he loves going out to eat brunch himself. But now he’s finally agreed to cook up some magic for the rest of us brunch-lovers.
Macchialina will be open on Sunday from noon to 4pm, in typical Miami fashion of “who eats before noon on a Sunday?” A la carte options will be available, but the chef menu will rotate weekly to keep fresh options to future regulars. For $35 per guest you will be able to sample six sure-to-be-scrumptious dishes split between 3 courses.
Items on the brunch menu range from pastries and small bites to lavish meals. Maybe the simplest thing on the menu, a scone and muffin basket with jam and mascarpone butter, sounds quite delicious, but wait until you hear the rest of the offerings. To name a few: a breakfast pizza with pancetta, potatoes, fontina and sunny side up eggs; steak & eggs with an Italian chili relleno and beef jus; Maine lobster roll with celery, tarragon and mayonnaise; and sweet Italian toast made with Panettone, maple pecan butter and crispy prosciutto. Okay, still looking for a few more options? Try the whipped ricotta with grilled figs, honey and country bread; or polenta and eggs with crispy prosciutto and arugula.
Don’t forget the drinks! Peach Bellinis, Mimosas, or a Sicilian Kiss will be sure to do.
My mouth is watering… is it Sunday yet?
