Miami Spice for Weekend Brunch: Five Restaurants With Great Deals

Here's a news flash for ya. It's going to be a hot and sticky weekend. You've got two options: beach or brunch, although knowing us Miamians, we'll choose both.

Though Miami Spice doesn't technically offer brunch deals, check out these restaurants serving great three-course "daytime meals" on the weekend. Forget the semantics and hit one of these places. Order a bloody mary and you've just turned your "lunch" to "brunch."

The Dutch

Four appetizers to choose from include an heirloom tomato salad or sheep's milk ricotta. Lunch entrees include the Dutch burger, crispy chicken salad, or a mahi sandwich. Want more protein? A gigantic 18-ounce, bone-in New York strip, served with Swank Salad is an additional $40. Desserts include bourbon bread pudding, sorbet, or salted lime pie.

$23 luxury lunch, served Saturday and Sunday.

Tosca

Have you always wanted to try Tosca but your wallet said "no, no, no"? The Spice menu will fill you up at a reasonable price point. Start with escolar crudo, misticanza salad, or baby spinach salad, but leave room because the main course choices are all pasta. Choose from baked penne, spaghetti vongole, or prosciutto pansotti for your entree. If you've got any room left, there's panna cotta, mousse, or tiramisu for dessert.

$23 luxury lunch, served Sunday only.

Hakkasan

Dim Sum for Spice? That's the way Hakkasan rolls, baby. You don't get a lot of choices, but you do get everything on the menu -- making this a great place for people who can never decide on what to order. Start out with Hakkasan's dim sum combo of steamed mini char siew bun, crystal lotus shrimp dumpling, and spinach beef shui mai and a barbecue combo of lamb skewers and roasted garlic spare ribs. Then move on to the sea bass in orange sauce with stir-fried bok choi and noodles. For dessert there's mango custard or white chocolate panna cotta.

$23 luxury lunch, served Saturday and Sunday.

Florida Cookery

Oh, Florida Cookery, you had us at guabana-glazed sticky ribs, served as an appetizer no less. There are other options, but why bother when those are on the menu? Lick your fingers, then choose from a veggie dream burger, lime grilled chicken, or Mediterranean chopped salad for your entree. Tuck into a slice of Key Lime pie for dessert.

Milos

Milos' Spice weekend lunch brunch spotlights many of its best fish dishes. Sure, it's close to their daily lunch special -- but if you're a pescatarian, this is still a solid choice. Appetizers include a Greek meze plate, a bagel-and-smoked salmon platter, and fresh diver scallop skewer. Entrees include fresh sea bream, Honjake salmon, shrimp saganaki, or big-eyed tuna. Milos keeps dessert light with your choice of fresh Greek yogurt with thyme honey or fruit. We suggest ordering both and sharing.
