Born as a pop-up with a short menu of breakfast-inspired eats, husband-and-wife team Jamila Ross and Akino West's Rosie's restaurant is now a Friday-through-Sunday brunch gem in Miami's burgeoning Little River neighborhood. The industrial-inspired space is set off by a tree-lined outdoor patio — a suitable spot to enjoy a Southern-inspired menu that checks all the brunch boxes. Start with deviled eggs topped with crisp chicharrones before moving on to buttery biscuits served alongside fried chicken with bread-and-butter pickles, best when doused with the housemade Calabrian chili oil. Larger plates include a savory mushroom and charred kale polenta made more decadent with a topping of a poached egg, herb gremolata, and shaved Parmesan. Not to be skipped: the bar's lineup of local craft beers, selection of biodynamic and natural wines, and cocktails prepared with fresh-squeezed juices.
