Find the brisket.
The weekend forecast sure looks promising: sunny with guaranteed cool temperatures and a chance of brunch. Although, that last one is up to you.

With the weather continuing to dip down into the 60s and 50s (how great was last night?), spending your weekend wearing a light jacket while downing bloody mary's sounds like a great plan. For that and four types of benedicts, head to South of Fifth gem Local House.

The belly turns four.
Everyone's favorite gastropub, Pubbelly, is turning four this Sunday. To celebrate, the Sunset Harbour restaurant is inviting in Brad Kilgore for a special celebratory brunch that includes bacon jam, a Thanksgiving-style Benedict, and duck confit French toast. And because it wouldn't be a celebration without booze, bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, and sangrias will be available so you can toast to the last four years of pork belly ramen and duck and pumpkin stuffed dumplings.

Hannya's Vietnamese Brunch: Korean Pancake, Flash-Fried Spring Rolls, and Pho

Korean pancake
Miami has grown accustomed to the idea that brunch means bottomless booze and putting an egg on things, but in Vietnamese cooking, egg isn't a big part of the cuisine. Instead, pho and tea is the typical Sunday ritual. At Hannya, the Japanese restaurant in Brickell from the duo behind Akashi and Rice House of Kabob, the Vietnamese tradition lives on.

Owner Larry Chi has carried over most of the Akashi menu for lunch and dinner but has incorporated something Akashi's never done before -- brunch. The Vietnamese-style affair was somewhat inspired by his wife, Barbara, who is Vietnamese.

Short Order was invited to check out the current offerings, which are still being developed.

This ain't your Aunt Fanny's brunch.
Bored with the same old brunch? Tired of eating lemon ricotta pancakes while sipping mimosas? Think the whole breakfast/lunch combo thingy is just a little too twee?

In other words: Ever wish there was a brunch with balls?

Then check out Naked Taco's weekend brunch, launching this Saturday, November 1 (coincidentally, the Day of the Dead).

Instead of glasses of chilled sparkling rosé and baskets of tiny danishes, you'll find tequila and spicy jalapeño bread -- because sometimes you need a little hair of the dog and a lot of hot sauce to kick-start your heart after a long night of partying.

Loba in MiMo Debuts Brunch This Sunday: Free Mimosas for All

The "Ring of Fire" is a sweet potato waffle with jamón serrano, Spanish fried chicken, chipotle butter, and maple syrup.
Miami isn't exactly overflowing with praiseworthy brunch spots, so we get unusually excited any time a cool restaurant launches a brunch program. This weekend it happens to be Loba, an intimate gastrobar in MiMo serving Latin and South American cuisine.

The hybrid meal is owner Jessica Sanchez's favorite, so to test the waters, she encouraged diners to share their likes and dislikes during two pop-up brunches. Sanchez wants the brunch menu -- like the dinner menu -- to include healthful options (chia seed pudding, anyone?) and vegetarian entrées in addition to decadent items, such as the Ring of Fire. The dish consists of a sweet potato waffle, jamón serrano, Spanish fried chicken, chipotle butter, and Vermont maple syrup ($18).

Pubbelly Brunch Fare: Media Noche McBelly and Granola With Yuzu

Pubbelly does brunch
The Pubbelly boys might be growing an empire, but that's not keeping them from keeping the location that started it all fresh and exciting. Since opening in 2010, Pubbelly has lacked one thing: brunch. If you wanted the breakfast-meets-lunch indulgence in the form of French toast sticks, you headed over to PB Steak.

But when PB Steak announced it would close to move to the mainland, French toast dreams were shattered. Until a couple of weeks ago that is, when Pubbelly started serving "Sunday brunch fare: a wonderful fresh ingredient feast."

Cafe Mistral Brunch: Bottomless Mimosas or Passion Fruit Bellinis for $5

Last month we discovered the best mimosa brunch deal in town over at Love is Blind where a dollar gets you a long way. But over at Café Mistral, an extra $5 will get you unlimited mimosas poured throughout your entire meal all weekend long. Did we mention the orange juice is freshly squeezed? (That alone is normally $5.) Consider it mentioned.

You'll notice the surfboard in the dining room like a needle in a haystack. Café Mistral comes to you from one of the owners of Radio, Philippe Falca. An avid surfer who's traveled around the globe, Falca uses this board whenever there're big waves -- AKA when a hurricane is coming -- to get his waves on.
