Puerto Rican Pop-Up Lunch at Pubbelly

Inspired by the Puerto Rican celebration of Las Octavitas, the eight-day holiday following Three Kings Day, the Chinchorros-like meal is similar to what you'd find at roadside stops in Puerto Rico and includes tostones, empanadillas, and papitas fritas. 1418 20th St., Miami Beach, 305-532-7555 >>Read More

With more Miami restaurants than ever before serving up brunch, there won’t be a single weekend when you’ll go hungry (or thirsty). Here are 11 brunches you can't miss.
Why: Blue Collar brunch devotees will love Danny Serfer’s fancy, seafood-centric brunch. In addition to the expected oysters and caviar, there are crepes (or blintzes as Serfer calls them), quiche, and your choice of shrimp, crab, or lobster Benedict.
Best dish: Egg salad and sturgeon caviar on perfectly buttered slices of brioche. Didn't we warn you it was fancy?
Wash it down with: A blood-orange mimosa. Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m.- 3 p.m. 210 NE 18 St., Miami, 305-374-4635 >>Read More
