If Kim Kardashian enjoys eating at Serafina at the Dream South Beach Hotel, who are we to argue?
We went for brunch yesterday and were pleased. The service was fantastic, as was the ambiance and the live entertainment.
We tried an omelet ($10 to $19), eggs Benedict ($12 to $14), a Serafina hamburger ($18.75 to $19.75), tartare di sofia ($16), mussels al prosecco ($14.50), and mango chicken salad ($15.50). Overall, the food ranged from average to good, particularly the eggs Benedict and the mango chicken salad.
Our server Jay and the food-and-beverage manager, Ty Raudman, informed us that Kim Kardashian often eats at Serafina when she's in town. During her last visit in January, she told the paparazzi that it was one of her "favorite restaurants" and that she also eats regularly at the location in New York. Maybe her pregnancy cravings call for Serafina.
So what does KiKa eat here? In January, she ordered bruschetta, the Serafina chicken salad, and an iced tea with Splenda. Though Serafina isn't our favorite restaurant, it is on the corner of Tenth Street and Collins Avenue, a perfect spot to enjoy a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning, especially with a $25 bottomless bellini made with fresh peach purée.
Jay informed us that on Kim's last visit, she was dining with two people who also appear on the show Kim & Kourtney Take Miami. One has been confirmed as bestie Jonathan Cheban. Kim posted "Jonathan and I went to go get a bite to eat in miami today! We went to one of my favorite spots Serafina!" online, as reported by Celebuzz.com.
"She's real nice," Jay says. "The paparazzi were chasing her. Then, when she came in, they just stayed outside, real peaceful. When she left, they started following her again."
