There are two types of people in Miami: Those who meet with friends and family religiously at The Rusty Pelican and those who only visit when it’s time to celebrate a very special occasion. In tandem with delicious menu offerings, the waterfront magnet offers up breathtaking views from the al fresco patio, always abuzz bar and expansive dining room. “Part of our success is our dedication to keeping things new and exciting,” says Jim Pastor, Executive Chef for The Rusty Pelican and Eastern Regional Chef for Specialty Restaurants Corporation (SRC), which owns and operates The Rusty Pelican and Whiskey Joe’s brands, among others. “Our diners know they can always expect perfectly executed classics, modern favorites and seasonal creations.” Although most of the new options are found on the dinner menu, their famous brunch is also benefitting from some menu upgrades. The Brunch Board For Two features shareable portions of Lobster Benedict, New York Strip Reserve, Fried Chicken & Waffles, and Fingerling Smash ($125). Their French Toast, Huevos Rancheros, Pork Belly & Waffle and Filet Benedict are also stand-outs. And what is brunch without delicious libations? Creative new mimosa flavors including Apple Cider Pumpkin Spice, Passion Fruit & Tarragon, and Dragon Fruit & Watermelon will no doubt further cement The Rusty Pelican’s reputation as one of Miami’s most iconic dining experiences with an ever-evolving menu that never disappoints; TheRustyPelican.com.
