Miami Spice Sunday Brunch at W Hotel, Brickell
Miami Spice is in full swing! With just about three weeks left (ends September 30), it’s the perfect time for foodies to get a taste of an explored restaurant, or to revisit one of your favorite dining spots. Restaurants that participate in Miami Spice have a prix fixe menu, and offers a three-course meal, with brunch/lunch priced at $23, dinner at $39. This weekend, I got together with my friend, Linda. We caught up over brunch and opted for 15th and Vine Kitchen and Bar, located in the W Miami hotel in Brickell. Overall, we had a great time. However, things started off rough at first. When we arrived, we were asked if we had reservations. We did not. The restaurant was not packed. But we were told that the tables were reserved. So, we were initially seated in a tight space in the corner. Luckily, our servers -Robinson and Andres were able to get us a more comfortable table, and it was the beginning of a great time. So tip #1: Make sure to reserve a table ahead of time!Our fabulous servers: Robinson and Andres.Everything on the menu sounded appetizing. I opted to start with the wedge salad, followed by one of my brunch favorites – eggs benedict, and for dessert, I selected the baklava, with fruit cake and vanilla ice cream. For drinks I had the bloody mary and the mimosa. While dining at 15th and Vine, if you’re a bottomless type bruncher, there is a $15 deal to get unlimited mimosas or bloody marys. My friend, Linda chose the same starter (wedge salad) and dessert (baklava), but opted for the chicken and waffles, as her main course.
Without further ado, this is what we had:The wedge salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, crispy bacon, blue cheese dressing, and sunflower seeds. I’m typically not a salad person, but this salad had all the right flavors, and resulted in a thumbs up from me. Blood Mary: thick-bodied and very refreshing.Mimosa: good ol’ classic mimosa -juicy and refreshing.Speaking of mimosas. Linda getting her mimosa personally served by Robinson! Oooh, boy! I really, really enjoyed eating this Eggs Benedict. Eggs Benedict is a weakness of mine, and they did not disappoint.Fried Chicken and Waffles with truffle honey and coleslaw. Then. Came Dessert. It was truly love at first bite! The Baklava with fruit cake, and vanila ice cream, was the perfect marriage of creamy, flaky, fresh-from-the-oven goodness!
