As brunching is gaining in popularity, restaurants are starting to play their A-game on Sundays. Usually there is plenty of alcohol involved so brunch is more like a party than ever before. There are the best places.
Zuma not only has some of the best food around, it also has the best brunch. So good, in fact, that now they offer it on Saturdays and Sundays. Don't expect a lot of traditional breakfast foods though, Zuma is more about the fish, sushi and playful twists on serious Japanese cuisine.

Cecconi's is a great place for brunch because of well, the atmosphere. It's laid-back, yet sophisticated and the courtyard can't be beat. Neither can the classic Mediterranean brunch with salmon, pastas, pastries and pancakes.

3 Edge at the Four Seasons
The Four Seasons is famous for their excellent brunches. Of course they have all the breakfast classics, but you might skip right by them to try things like ribs from the BBQ Grill, the marvelous charcuterie station or the "Taco Shack" which is a high-end approach to Mexican taco-cart dishes.

4 La Gloutonnerie
Yes, this place will turn you into a glutton as advertised. But it will be all worth it as you loose yourself in French pastries and all manner of traditional French specialties. This is a perfect place to go with a group of fellow "gluttons."

5 Bianca at the Delano
The Delano is a classic place in South Beach to enjoy a sumptuous brunch with a beautiful garden view. A new selection of items on the buffet include Jonah “snap-‘n-eats” crab claws, Homemade Focaccia Bread, Baby Back Ribs, Smoked Sturgeon, and Grilled Oysters.
