“This brunch menu has a little bit of everything," Serfer says. "Some Mignonette, some McDonald’s breakfast, some Blue Collar, and some serious sweets."
According to Serfer, who successfully launched brunch at his other establishments — Blue Collar and Mignonette in Edgewater — Uptown's midday meal was mostly designed by chef de cuisine Anthony Ciancio, blending seafood staples with classic diner fare.
The most notable item on Mignonette Uptown's new brunch menu is a bagel tower ($49). Stocked with smears, veggies, and fish, the platter is enough to fill a group of three or four. It comes with three lightly toasted bagels sourced from a local deli, along with an assortment of traditional New York-style bagel fixings, such as shellfish, Durham Tracklement’s smoked salon, fish dip, capers, tomatoes, and red onion.
Benedict lovers can order the poached-egg-and-hollandaise dish served on a crisp latke instead of an English muffin. Top it off with seafood, such as Maine lobster or crab, or opt for the "Fancied" version, which packs caviar between the egg and latke.
Brunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Visit mignonettemiami.com.
