- Bistro Cassis
If you are a traditionalist who believes brunch should be available well before noon, Bistro Cassis might satisfy your appetite. Available Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., this brunch features à la carte French fare as well as unlimited sangria, mimosas, Bloody Marys and Bellinis—all for just $19 per person.

Peruvian restaurant Coya—also found in London and Dubai—offers a rich brunch menu. Available to you are a selection of ceviches, tiraditos, maki rolls, causas and salads, followed by signature anticuchos and desserts for the table to share.

New to Wynwood is Brad Kilgore’s restaurant Alter. You can expect relatively inexpensive fare and impressive plating techniques. Consider dining on scallop carpaccio, blue crab shumai, glazed brisket or panna cotta. Too many good choices to decide? A five-course tasting menu is available for $42.

- Golden Fig
If you’re interested in satisfying your craving for classic American dishes while simultaneously being kind to your body, Golden Fig has many nutrient-rich offerings. It would be hard to go wrong with their grass-fed burger and hand-cut fries, but their pan-seared chicken breast with collard greens would be sure to satisfy. And don’t forget dessert—peach cobbler as well as key lime and s’mores jars are available for $9 each.
Located at: 1250 S.Miami Ave CU #4, Miami Financial District, FL 33130
- Red Ginger
If Asian cuisine is your food of choice, you won’t want to miss Red Ginger. Located in the South of Fifth neighborhood, this joint is just steps away from the beach. It features izakaya fare, sushi, specialty cocktails and a large selection of Japanese whiskey, among other refreshments. And don’t worry—if you don’t want to leave the comfort of your Luxury Rentals Miami Beach lodging, Red Ginger also offers delivery.

- The Continental
A sister restaurant of Stephen Starr’s 20-year-old Continental Restaurant & Martini Bar in Philadelphia, this new eatery features a variety of flavors and refreshments, including tiki-inspired eats. You even have choices when it comes to ambiance: eat inside the mid-century modern dining room or step into paradise on the tropical patios (if you do this, be sure to order a Island Thyme Sangria, to complete the effect). Currently the restaurant is open for brunch (Sat. and Sun. 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.), dinner and cocktails, and a lunch menu is on the horizon.
Located at: 2360 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139
