Sandy shores have always been South Beach's biggest daytime draw, but a newly robust brunch scene may just be your next favorite thing about the beach. Over the past few months a number of great restaurants have opened with brunch menus that truly steal the spotlight, whether you're in need of a breakfast enchilada or thirsty to keep the champagne flowing.
The Lazy and Luxe Sunday: Restaurant Michael Schwartz
Located inside South Beach's historic Raleigh Hotel, Restaurant Michael Schwartz highlights the very things that this James Beard award-winning chef is known for. The brunch menu is extensive, delicious, and classic—Brioche French toast, a three egg omelet with mushrooms, peppers, and Gruyere, and lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry compote—you simply can’t go wrong. So sit back and soak up the restaurant’s bottomless Bloody Mary special with a perfect view of The Raleigh's world famous Art Deco pool. 1775 Collins Ave., 305-612-1163 >>Read More

When it comes to good pizza, you probably don't think of Miami as a city that feeds the carb-and-cheese-obsessed masses. But in recent years, the Magic City’s pizza scene has grown, with fresh-out-the-coal-oven pies and creative takes on America's adopted comfort food. Here are seven standout pizzerias to grab a slice (and spot celebrities).
Bigger is Better: Pizza Bar
Touting a motto about how size does matter, this South Beach pizza joint boasts the largest pies in all of Miami. Measuring up to 30 inches wide, the pies come in 30 signature styles like the Florentine + the Machine, served with bacon, ham, tomato, basil, and ricotta. The rock 'n' roll-inspired bar is open late and delivers until 2am—which Madonna reportedly took advantage of when she picked up eight pies for her dance crew on a recent stop in Miami. Tip: A second location will open soon on West Avenue. 1627 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-672-6880 >>Read More
