An Italian Brunch Feast at Forte dei Marmi

By Caitlin Marino

As if I haven’t expressed it enough, I have the biggest obsession with Italian cuisine, so when MMTM got the invite to visit Forte dei Marmi, you can only imagine how thrilled I was to check it out! Throughout my journey of veganism, one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is to never compromise on high-quality, organic, and fresh products (regardless of whether the meal is vegan or not.) Forte dei Marmi (150 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach) specializes in just that – incomparable fresh ingredients – which, in part, has earned acclaimed chef Antonio Mellino two Michelin stars. Upon arrival, you’re greeted by the jaw-dropping décor designed to recreate the vibes of an elegant resort in a seaside Italian city. Impressed would be an understatement and we had only just step foot in.

Brunch Bonanza at Bird & Bone

By Melanie Galarce

Do you guys remember that time that Mitch told you all about dinner at Bird & Bone? The restaurant, a self-proclaimed contemporary countryside farmhouse, offers soulful Southern cuisine through locally sourced ingredients from independent farms and organic butchers (so you feel a bit less guilty about the indulgent meal). Mitch might have told you all about the dinner, but on a rather steamy Sunday morning, I ventured to Bird & Bone’s home at The Confidante (4041 Collins Ave, Miami Beach) for brunch and was equally as impressed by the quality of the menu.

Spring Break Brunching at Brasserie Azur

By Mitchell Nover

If you’ve ever been to the South of France, you know it’s a very unique experience. From Nice to Marseille to Saint-Tropez, the Côte d’Azur, the cities feel more like small beach towns that are somehow able to both offer feelings of casual comfort and ultra luxury. Brasserie Azur (3252 NE 1st Ave, Miami) is a great representation of that vibe, bringing a taste of the French Riviera to Midtown Miami.

Izaka-yasssss

By Mitchell Nover

Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market (5241 NW 87th Ave, Doral) is not your traditional Japanese restaurant. While it’s rooted in Japanese comfort food, its menu is a globally-inspired take on traditional Izakaya (aka Japanese gastropub) dishes. In addition to a raw bar, and extensive sushi and sashimi selection, Dragonfly also features a progressive beverage program and an adjoining fish market will nod to the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Japan where guests can participate in educational seafood workshops and purchase items ranging from house-made bottled sauces to fresh seafood sourced locally and from exotic waters across the globe.

Brunching at Bakehouse Brasserie

By Melanie Galarce

Bakehouse Brasserie (808 First Street, Miami Beach) is a charming Parisian-style eatery serving pastries, all-day brunch, cocktails of course, since it’s aptly located in Miami Beach’s swanky neighborhood, South of Fifth. It feels like lately we’ve been visiting SoFi (as it’s known to locals) quite a bit lately, and we’re stoked about the foodie scene in one of our favorite spots in Miami. The small but glamorous restaurant seats less than a 100 and offers grab-and-go baked goodies from 7-10AM at which point the restaurant opens up for an all-day brunch rendezvous.
