It's been more than a year since Stiltsville Fish Bar first debuted brunch. Now, the weekend meal is getting an upgrade with seafood towers, bloody mary carts, and grilled catches of the day. Top Chef couple Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth are calling it the "bubble bath brunch."
McInnis and Booth, who are in the midst of opening Root & Bone in South Miami on December 29, have extended the Stiltsville brunch from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday with half-off specials like $55 bottles of Perrier-Jouët and $25 bottles of La Fête Rosé. They've also added $6 Elyx Vodka bloody marys, which can be garnished with an array of ingredients from a nearby cart.
