Guide to Labor Day brunch in Miami
Moët & Chandon puts on a rager of a brunch party at Seaspice, featuring a dedicated champagne menu, flute specials and deals on champagne parades—which is way more fun than floats and fireworks. A DJ spins all afternoon while you drink and nibble your way through truffle egg tarts, healthy power waffles and lobster Benedict. Sun noon–6pm; a la carte.
Corsair’s The 52 brunch is extended one more day, giving you a reason to head to Aventura on Labor Day Monday. The restaurant’s remarkable brunch deal ($45 gets you an entrée, access to a brunch buffet and unlimited mimosas!) features dishes like short ribs eggs Benedict and Captain Crunch French toast, plus a raw bar piled with fresh shrimp and crab claws and a dessert spread with an assortment of bite-size sweets. The view of Turnberry’s gorgeous golf course is, of course, always free. Sun 11am–3pm; $45.
If you’re brunching with kids in tow, Glass & Vine is about as child-friendly as it gets. Let the little ones run around Peacock Park while you sip mimosas and keep an eye on them from your table. All of the restaurant’s popular brunch dishes are making an appearance at this special Monday brunch, including the wood-oven baked eggs (a gooey combination of garlic cream sauce, Grana Padano and optional truffle sauce you’ll scoop up with a side of grilled bread) and the buttery cornbread Banana Johnny Cake. The usual assortment of wine, cocktails, beer and brunch drinks will be available, too. Mon 10am–3:30pm; a la carte.
Head to Matador Room for a lavish, three-course brunch that includes options such as huevos rancheros and spiced French toast to start. Subsequent courses run the gamut from a turkey Cubano to heaping chicken salad to wild shrimp from the Florida Keys. All diners receive an assortment of pastries, a fruit plate and sweet pea guacamole and chips to start. Sun 11am–4pm. $55; bottomless prosecco, mimosas, Bellinis, Bloody Marys $25.
Brunch is a true highlight at this French-style bistro with outposts across the country. But brunch is a misnomer for what happens at Bagatelle between noon and 6pm on Sundays. It’s more like a dance party with bottle service meets a very dimly lit meal set to a bumping soundtrack. And we like it that way. This Labor Day, pop in for the restaurant’s special white party, which will undoubtedly include lots of dancing, drinking and napkins swinging in the air. Sun noon–6pm; a la carte.
Just because you’re doing it poolside in a bikini doesn’t mean we can’t call it brunch. Take your midday noshing to the Mondrian pool deck for a special Monday edition of Bubbles & BBQ, featuring a lavish lobster spread and Taittinger Champagne. Food is a la carte but renting a cabana ($1000 for 15 guests) or daybed ($750 for six guests) is mandatory. Hey, at least you’re not laboring? Mon at noon.
The bad news: American Social will not be serving brunch on Monday. The good news: The Brickell bar/restaurant is extending its brunch drink special to all those who want to stop by for lunch. Pair your burger or sandwich with bottomless house mimosas ($24.95), Moët & Chandon mimosas ($40.95) or unlimited Belvedere Bloody Marys ($29.95), among other options. Mon 11am–4:30pm; a la carte.
