Looking for a Sunday Funday in Miami? Head to the Artisan Beach House, in The Ritz-Carlton – Bal Harbour, for a blissful boozy brunch al fresco. Drink in the ocean views from the restaurant’s open-air seating on the spacious terrace. The Bal Harbour Village, on the northern tip of Miami Beach, is known for its posh oceanfront resorts, ultra-chic shopping, and dining as well as its pristine, white sand beaches.
Luxuriating in this quiet bliss, you’ll find yourself too relaxed, and pampered by the staff, to leave after your plate has been scraped clean. Luckily, there is a seductive craft cocktail section on the Artisan’s scrumptious brunch menu to entice you to stay put.
Next Sunday Funday, chill out at the luxe Artisan Beach House with these great eats and cool drinks.
Pineapple X-Press Cold Pressed Juice
Pineapple X-press, one of the detoxing and re-energizing cold-pressed juices made in-house daily. Stay light and order the excellent Charred Kale Salad – with squash, Poblano peppers, Minas cheese and black garlic dressing. Or, add on grilled Mahi Mahi as a great start to a perfect endless afternoon.
Brunch Cocktails at Artisan Beach House Miami
More potent and richer than a Mimosa, with Bache-Gabrielsen AO Cognac, Giffard banana liqueur, cardamom syrup, lemon, and sparkling wine. Pair it with the decadent Nutella French Toast with caramelized bananas and real maple syrup.
A zestier version of the classic. Mars Iwai Japanese Whiskey, ginger vanilla syrup, black lemon bitters, and aromatic bitters
Smoked Rum & Coke
The lively peppery taste updates the tired Cuba Libre. Kirk & Sweeney 23-Year-Old Rum, house smoked coke, and lime.
Since it’s now actually 5 o’clock, do order the Artisan’s braised ‘til tender Grilled Octopus – tandoori carrots with cilantro and yogurt over a flavorful Vadouvan curry sauce, from their dinner menu. Or, finish with a specialty coffee and a delicious dessert, or two.
