This neighborhood gastropub in the heart of Brickell has created the ultimate spin on bread pudding for St. Paddy’s Day: Guinness cinnamon bun bread pudding ($10). The massive dessert starts with cinnamon buns soaked in heavy cream seasoned with vanilla, nutmeg, and Guinness. Then it's laid in a cast-iron pan and baked with chocolate chips. This decadent dish is available March 17 only, and according to Batch owner Kevin Danilo, “They’re huge. Maybe we should call them the Ron Jeremy Guinness bread pudding.” 30 SW 12th St., Miami; 305-808-5555
