Ah, eggs Benedict. It's one of the most traditional and anticipated dishes on a restaurant's breakfast or brunch menu. Usually, the dish includes two poached eggs, a meat or vegetable, an English muffin, and large drizzle of a gooey yellow sauce. Once broken, the egg's yolk runs throughout the plate, and the English muffin is meant to soak up every last bit of flavor.

Most Miami restaurants have a Benny on the menu. And luckily, many have decided to spice up the classic plate. From soaking poached eggs in a red-wine sauce to serving the dish with a pound of lobster, these five restaurants have mastered the art of the Benedict.

5. Short Rib Eggs Benedict at Dolores but You Can Call Me Lolita
Enjoy your Benedict two ways on Dolores' rooftop. Go classic with bacon, or bravely tuck into the short-rib iteration ($12). Instead of using an English muffin as a base, Dolores soaks a crunchy piece of croissant in a butter mix and tops it with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Both versions are served with patatas bravas.

4. Deconstructed Eggs Benedict Casserole at Nikki Beach
Nikki Beach's deconstructed eggs Benedict won a 2016 Best of Miami award for a reason: It's innovative and consistently tasty. Though it looks like a bowl of yellow mush, it blends the gooeyness and flavor of eggs Benedict with the design of a casserole, forming a tasty and slightly messy weekend treat. It includes all of the traditional ingredients but is baked in a terra cotta cazuela. It's made to order and can include serrano ham, spinach, or salmon.

3. Maine Lobster Benedict at the Rusty Pelican
The Rusty Pelican's lobster Benedict incorporates executive chef Jim Pastor's signature jalapeño-cheddar cornbread. Served with about a pound of lobster, each plate features two Benedicts topped with a runny poached egg and crisp shallots. Though the dish sports a substantial amount of seafood, it's balanced by Pastor's sweet and salty bread, lightly toasted to give it a slight crunch on the outside while keeping it airy and buttery on the inside.

2. Caribbean Eggs Benedict at Zest
At Cindy Hutson's Zest, located in the Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami, find a Caribbean-inspired eggs Benedict. Each plate comes with two poached eggs, each placed on a toasted English muffin and topped with country ham and conch hash. The portion appears small, but don't be fooled. The fusion of two eggs and conch hash is filling.

1. Classic Salmon Eggs Benedict at the Continental
Sometimes traditional is best. A smattering of Miami eateries have jazzed up the Benedict in unimaginable ways, but the Continental keeps it classic and utterly delicious. The salmon eggs Benedict comes drizzled in a special hollandaise sauce over a warm English muffin. The poached eggs are cooked perfectly for a runny center. Be sure to dip crisp potatoes (served on the side) in the leftover yolk.
