Best Miami Sunday Brunches

There is nothing better than waking up any given Sunday Miami morning and going to one of the best known brunches around.  It can get a bit pricey, but we are in Miami, you will enjoy atmosphere, good food and may even share the room with a celebrity or two.

  • Nemo Sunday Brunch

Located at Nemo's - 100 Collins Avenue in South Beach (area known as SoFi) - (305) 532-4550.  This one is my favorite - the food is outrageous (I am salivating as I type) and the atmosphere does not get any better.  The price is $29/person.  Served from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM - UNFORTUNATELY, SINCE WE WROTE THIS ARTICLE, NEMO CLOSED ITS DOORS

  • Emeril's Sunday Brunch

Located at Emeril's Miami Beach - Loews Miami Beach Hotel - 1601 Collins Avenue - (305) 695-4550.  Start it of with a  BAM!  What I love about this place is the attention to detail, from the time the server takes your order to the time the dish is delivered to the table.  The menu is a-la-carte and although reservations are recommended, walk-ins are welcome.  Served from 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - SORRY, ANOTHER CLOSED ESTABLISHMENT!

Another fantastic place for an amazing Sunday brunch is over at Nikki Beach on Miami Beach. You get to eat tons of different foods and champagne on the beach outside! Sit and relax in the comfortable beach chairs or loungers, listen to great music by DJ JP, get in and out easily with free parking and just relax with friends. The staff is fantastic and very attentive and you can't beat the atmosphere!!!

I see your Biltmore and raise you the 4 Seasons ( Brickell ) and the Ritz ( Key B. )

One of them has a room devoted just to desserts, and at the Ritz, you can stay the day, use the pool and swim in the Bay !

Keith - thank you, the Ritz does sound good, I'll have to try it :)

Every Christmas, my family drives down from Fort Lauderdale for the Biltmore Christmas buffet. Its $75 plus tax and top and well worth it. I usually start off with a big pile of caviar, crumbled egg, sliced onion and small pieces of French bread. Having already equaled the price of the meal with my opening plate, it up hill from there - in fact, downright extravagant. I feel the recession just like everyone else, and the value of my condo has dropped 50% - but sometimes, you just need an out of this world meal to make it all seem worth it, and the Biltmore pulls through. Maybe, I won't just wait till Christmas anymore.
