If you’re looking for something more exotic, head to the famed Two Michelin Star Chef Antonio Mellino’s Forte Dei Marmi restaurant located in Miami’s SoFi neighborhood for an Italian-style Thanksgiving brunch priced at $75/person. The three-course meal features a Bronze Table Antipasti Bar to start, including Marinated Artichokes, their special Stuffed Zucchini, Stuffed Red Tomatoes and Red Peppers, prosciutto, mortadella, bresaola and salami stations, and of course, a selection of fresh cheeses or salads for something lighter.

And to top it off, guests can enjoy a very sweet dessert display including Pumpkin Cake, Cannolis, Apple Pie or the restaurant’s signature Honey Onyx Pistachio Gelato for the table (+15).
