We know you’ve been to Top Chef Jeremy Ford’s new Miami Beach restaurant for dinner. But what about brunch? Trust us, you need to try his chai waffles, snickerdoodle cookies, buttermilk biscuits and pork belly ASAP. No food coma has ever been more worth it.

The only thing better than Zuma’s miso marinated black cod? The brunch version, which means you’ll get that plus unlimited visits to a sweet and savory buffet stocked with buttermilk fried chicken, bao buns, sushi and sashimi, and a dessert platter fit for a king.

Come on, try to tell us that this lush and leafy garden doesn’t look like somewhere you’d want to spend your Sunday. Order some avocado toast with a tofu scramble on the side. Oh, and don’t forget the white-chocolate doughnut and bourbon ice cream for dessert.

The Bazaar by José Andrés at SLS South Beach

South Beach: Come for the people-watching, stay for an epic brunch buffet with everything from crudos, ceviches and meats to freshly baked pastries and dessert stations.

Stiltsville Fish Bar

Excellent news: One of our favorite spots for seafood and ’Gram-worthy vibes just opened for brunch. And we can’t wait to try the hummingbird waffle topped with rum caramel, charred pineapple and mascarpone whip. And the blue crab cake eggs Benedict. And, of course, sugar-dusted beignets.

Habitat at the 1 Hotel

Yep, you read that right: Jose Mendin’s new restaurant at the 1 Hotel has officially entered the brunch game. The menu features French-toast sticks, build-your-own omelets, and avocado tartines topped with manchego and pumpkin romesco.  

2395 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-604-6700 or

Amara at Paraiso

We don’t know how we survived this long without these fluffy white-corn arepas topped with queso fresco and a poached egg, but we’re happy that we never have to go another weekend without it.

3101 NE 7th Ave., Miami; 305-702-5528 or

St. Regis Bal Harbour

This swanky hotel knows its way around a brunch menu with options like tuna tartare, vanilla waffles, sweet croissants, ricotta cheese blintzes and smoked-salmon bagels. There’s a pretty delightful macaron display situation going on, too.
