But what about air conditioning, bottomless bites and booze, and a drag show? R House, the restaurant/gallery in Wynwood, hosts the ultimate brunch party every first and third Sunday of the month.
We suggest making a reservation between noon and 1 p.m. and staying for the duration of the four-hour meal period, which ends at 4 p.m.
Hosted by Athena Dion, brunch includes performances by some of Miami's most popular drag divas, such as Olga Dantelly, Miss Toto, Asheeria Pryce, and Tayanna Love, as well as music by DJ Jody McDonald. Dion MCs all performances, where a drag diva dances, sings, and struts through the restaurant's corridors. The four performers rotate throughout the event and often get the audience involved by dressing guests in feathers and wigs, and pulling some out of their chairs for a sultry dance.
Between each performance, the music is lowered to give brunchgoers a chance to chat, order food, and refill their boozy beverages.
After a few rounds of appetizers, diners choose an entrée. Highlights are fried chicken and biscuits, doughy French toast with fresh fruit, steak and eggs, and R House's signature brisket-and-short-rib meatballs dunked in heirloom tomato marinara and Parmesan.
Desserts aren't included in the $40 prix fixe, but we suggest ending your experience with a homemade chocolate brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and Callebaut chocolate sauce.
R House's drag brunch runs every first and third Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information or reservations, call 305-576-0201 or visit rhousewynwood.com.
