Khong River House does not disappoint when it comes to its bottomless cocktails; diners get a choice of unlimited Thai or classic bloody Marys, mango bellinis, or mimosas to enhance their Thai-inspired meal of coconut sesame pancakes, drunken rice noodles, or another selection off the brunch menu. 1661 Meridian Ave., Miami, 305-763-8147
