There's a new brunch to try this weekend in South Beach. Forte dei Marmi, a Tuscan-inspired restaurant on Ocean Drive, will debut a buffet and à la carte experience from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, October 1.
Owned by Tatyana Silva with helmed in the kitchen by Michelin-starred chef Antonio Melino, the eatery offers a menu that highlights cuisine often found on Italy's Amalfi Coast.
For $55 per adult and $25 per child, guests can indulge in an antipasto bar, customary for an Italian brunch, stocked with octopus and potatoes; bluefin tuna tartare; grilled vegetables; avocado, mango, and nut granola salad; heirloom tomato and basil salad; and yogurt with fruit salad.
A raw fish station offers oysters, red prawns, scampi, and other seafood for an additional $35 per person.

Then patrons are given a choice of meat, fish, or egg entrée. Highlights include spinach, asparagus, and poached egg avocado toast; chicken Milanese topped with rucola and cherry tomatoes; and linguine alla nerano with zucchini and Parmesan. There's also a mixed grilled fish plate, which includes red prawns, Mediterranean langoustine, and a catch-of-the-day fillet for an extra $15.
Dessert is served buffet-style, with a selection of fruit crostatas, vanilla crème brûlée, chocolate profiteroles, apple pie, chocolate cake, and Neapolitan doughnuts, composed of three layers of flavor with a cake-like consistency.
