Edge, Steak & Bar – the chic, approachable and hot new restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Miami – brings back the property’s acclaimed brunch, this time with a twist. The culinary team at the hotel has gone to great lengths to surpass expectations and deliver a memorable and innovative Sunday brunch. Enter: Edge, Steak & Bar’s Best of Miami Sunday Brunch.
Embracing Miami’s wildly-popular food trucks movement, the new brunch will offer a twist on this trend with creatively designed food stations. Launching Sunday, January 22, 2012, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., diners can enjoy a savory buffet with all the classic trappings, as well as interact with chefs serving delicious fare via simulated food truck-style stations. The Viva La Mexico taco “truck” station will dish up braised short rib and chilaquiles served with chicken and green tomatillo and queso sauce. A Cuban food “truck” station will offer crispy roast suckling pig served on Cuban bread with mojo onions, house pickles and lemon aioli.
A meat carving station will showcase Edge’s signature tomahawk chop served with house-made Edge rub and three sauces; a Peruvian Seafood station will feature corvina ceviche with sweet potato and aji Amarillo cream; ahi tuna tartare with watermelon, shallots and flat leaf parsley, and wahoo tiradito with heirloom tomatoes and saffron vinaigrette to name a few. The brunch centerpiece is a seafood tower with an abundance of fresh spiny crabs, oysters and shrimp.
The buffet will include light offerings such as assorted chilled melons, mojito tropical fruit salad and passion fruit mango smoothie shots. There will be an array of small plates, soups and salads and antipasti will feature three bruschettas; balsamic mushroom and cipollini onions; smoked chicken and celery remoulade, and bacaloa with smoked trout, fennel, white beans and olive salad. Hot dishes will include seafood paella, BBQ spiced chicken with chimichurri, and guava braised short ribs with fried onions.
And what brunch is complete without amazing sweets? Desserts will range from a signature ice cream station, churned to order with an array of toppings, and a cotton candy station with an assortment of flavors. Additional sweet treats: freshly made churros; alfajores, guava tart and Key lime panna cotta.
Brunch activities will include a kids’ station with Wii and Xbox, and a small food display with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cheddar sticks, mini chocolate brownies and more. A kids a la carte menu is also available, which includes mac and cheese, chicken fingers, fresh fish with vegetables and mashed potatoes, and pasta Bolognese. And, for grown-ups who need a little hair of the dog, a Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary bar.
The brunch buffet and stations will be located between Edge and the adjacent 1435 Bar playfully known as the Outer Edge. Priced at $75 per adult, $32 per child (ages 5 to 12).
Edge, Steak & Bar is located at 1435 Brickell Avenue on the 7th floor of Four Seasons Hotel Miami. Reservations suggested. Telephone: (305) 381-3015; www.edgerestaurantmiami.com.
