Sundays in Miami are for brunching—bacon, omelettes, mimosas, the whole nine yards. In 2016 we enjoyed 52 weeks worth of stellar brunches from Fort Lauderdale to Miami Beach. Last week we kicked off another year of brunches at Terrazza at Shore Club. Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the "Ladies Who Brunch" celebration means a full brunch for only $44 with unlimited mimosas, bellinis, sangria and bloody marys for the girls and $64 for the guys. It's like ladies night, but boozier and better (because, well, there's food involved).
Buffets are always a major struggle for us. Every morsel of deliciousness vying to make it on our plate, often ending up in bizarre combinations of sweet and savory that we wouldn't eat on the same day, let alone the same meal. Despite Terrazza's delicious spread of small plates, charcuterie, cheeses, wood oven pizzas, and omelette and dessert stations, we somehow managed to put together a series of coherent courses that we washed down with mimosas.
We started with a small plate piled sky high with arugula topped with burrata and cured meats, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. Our next round was comprised of breakfast-only items, specifically a veggie omelette engulfed by half a plate of crispy bacon. For the final two rounds we made a triumphant return into lunchlandia with incredibly delicious sliders, rounding out the evening's feast with miniature desserts and fresh fruit.
Besides the fun female-centric premise, Terrazza's Sunday brunch is worthwhile for its unlimitedness. We're also partial to its proximity to the Shore Club's legendary weekend pool parties, the sub-tropical vibes and melodic DJ sounds of which permeate the restaurant's chic outdoor lounge even on rainy days like the one we caught during our visit. If you're looking to experience a "So South Beach" brunch, this is it—don't take our word for it, check out our photos below.
