South of Fifth is the place to be for boozy weekend brunch now that Upland Miami – one of the latest restaurants opened by the 2017 James Beard winner for Outstanding Restaurateur, Stephen Starr – has joined the neighborhood. This second outpost of the popular NYC restaurant brings celebrated Chef Justin Smillie’s signature California-inspired cuisine to Miami Beach’s chic South of Fifth Neighborhood.
The rich green and gold interior of the SoFi hotspot was designed by Roman and Williams, a Manhattan-based design firm praised for its ‘slow design’ with an emphasis on craft and substance. Craft and substance is definitely showcased at swanky Upland Miami’s bottomless brunch.
