Miami Easter Brunch Guide: Champagne, Buffets, and Egg Hunts
|Drink in the festivities.|
For others, it means an egg hunt with the kids, a parade with silly hats, or the celebration of spring.
Whatever the day means, it usually also comes with brunch, a large midday meal filled with buffets, food, and sweets. Some of the best restaurants in Miami are offering feasts featuring treats for everyone -- and lots of mimosas.
Prices listed generally do not include gratuity and taxes, and reservations are strongly suggested.
