Wine is a tabletop staple in Miami. Whether you’re just having a few drinks with your friends on a lazy afternoon, or you’re out to eat with your boss, it’s important to know what you like and more importantly, how to order it. Most wine aficionados come off as cocky, so asking a Somm for help won’t get you anywhere unless you want to be bored to death by them reliving their harvest days in France. On the other hand, you can’t go ordering Franzia’s White Zinfandel when you’re trying to impress the table. The best way to figure out what kind of wine you like is to start drinking more. I know, it’s wonderful advice. But since not all of us have an unlimited wine fund (Johnny Depp, I’m looking at you!), I’d be happy to give you the basics of how to order wine and what will work for your dinners.
Brunch here is done a little bit differently than traditional brunches in other cities. Instead of eggs benedict while soft music plays in the background of your meal with your parents, Miami likes to go big. Our brunches are much later, boozier, more festive, and more scantily clad. Sometimes they’re even by a pool! Wearing your "Sunday best" means finding your flashiest loungewear and getting ready for selfies and suntans.
In Miami, it's hard to find the perfect combination of service, ambiance, value, and food quality, but these are Wildchild Society's selections for Brunch! Click on the images for links to the restaurants' website.
Everyone loves fresh produce... these markets are the places to get them! Most of these markets are ripe with fruits and veggies as well as custom smoothies and even empanadas and other light bites. Make a date of shopping or perusing the market, or simply stop by to scoop up that much needed organic ingredient for tonight's dinner!
