"Orno" comes from the Spanish word for oven, which you’ll find front and center in James Beard Award nominee Niven Patel's open kitchen at the THesis Hotel. The airy ground-floor restaurant is an ideal spot to consume wood-fired dishes made with ingredients from Patel's own farm, like the carmelized onion pizza with a farm egg and a Maine lobster toast with avocado. The star of brunch, though, is the Osetra caviar omelet, delicately folded over with smoked salmon and chives. Don't sleep on the delightfully herbaceous Bloody Mary, like a garden in liquid form. And the brown butter sticky bun is an absolute must for dessert.
In Miami, you can brunch in a business suit, a flowy caftan or just that free tank top they passed out at the Heat game. You can sit down at a table draped in fine linen for dishes full of truffle and topped with caviar, order eggs your way at a Miami diner, or douse a pile of no-frills fried chicken and waffles in a beautiful pool of bourbon syrup.
We have boozy, bottomless brunches in Miami that might as well come with the drunken Uber ride home—is there really any other kind? The point is Miamians brunch. Seriously hard. But don’t settle for brunch just anywhere. This weekend, when you roll out of bed bright and early (say 3 o’clock in the afternoon?), just hope you’ve already got your reservation booked at one of these best spots for brunch in Miami.
