The brother-sister duo behind Whisk Gourmet has been serving organic and seasonal Southern-style comfort food in South Miami for nearly a decade (and in the charming restaurant’s current location since 2011). Indulge in chef Brendan Connor’s warm house-made cornbread with scallion honey butter; fried corn on the cob with cayenne butter; and shrimp and grits with cremini mushrooms, bacon, Anson Mills grits and scallions. The pulled pork burritos stuffed with jasmine rice, black beans, shredded muenster cheese, pico de gallo, avocado and peppadew cream (sweet piquanté peppers from South Africa) are also irresistible. Locals pack the place Thursday through Saturday and the wait for a table is typically around 45 minutes. To beat the rush, go earlier in the week or early in the day or evening: Lunch service begins at noon, dinner starts around 7pm and Sunday brunch is from 10:30am to 4pm (hello, fried green tomatoes!). The most popular seats in the house are at the bar or among other regulars at the lively community tables in front of the kitchen.
