Who doesn't like brunch? It's the best of both worlds. Breakfast and lunch items with the bonus of dessert (sometimes).
Some people think it's too much, but we think it's just right.
Before the end of 2012, a couple of places around town began serving brunch, and now that January is here, a few more have launched.
Check out four new neighborhood joints where you can get your brunch fix.
Starting this Sunday, the good people of Brickell can enjoy classic eggs Benedict ($9.50); chicken and waffles with maple butter; breakfast tacos filled with pulled pork, pico de gallo, and scrambled eggs ($10); and vanilla French toast with macerated berries ($9.50).
Brunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and for an extra $15, you can get unlimited bubbly for mimosas, bellinis, and assorted brunch essentials.
Who said you have to have brunch at a typical place? Pincho Factory now offers a Sunday brunch. Dishes include red velvet pancakes, bacon boat omelets, deep fried biscuits, and "maybe even a Benedict burger, as one client suggested," according to owner Nedal Ahmed. The most expensive thing on the menu is 10 bucks and includes a tricolor potato medley and homemade fruit salad.
Check out Pincho's brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m..
Brunch dishes include whipped homemade ricotta with wood-oven-roasted grapes, spiced cashews, local honey, and brioche toast ($9); egg salad crostini with bacon, crème fraîche, and chives ($6); and local squash fritatta ($6). Additionally, weekly-changing breakfast pizzas will rotate on the blackboard. The rest of the regular menu is available during brunch as well.
Brunch hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m..
The Local House
Choose one or choose them all. The Original Eggs Benedict includes poached eggs, Canadian bacon, tomato, homemade hollandaise sauce, or try the house special Local Benedict, with poached eggs, sautéed arugula, roasted tomato, Canadian bacon, and blue crab hollandaise sauce. Brunch also features endless mimosas and creative concoctions such as sweet-potato pancakes with maple syrup and fresh cream, and shrimp cornmeal porridge with bacon bits and a spicy brown sugar glaze.
