Fi’lia at SLS Brickell: A Weekend Treat

Brunch is all about good food and good vibes. At Fi’lia, these two essentials are everywhere during its weekend brunch service. Served Saturdays and Sundays, the Brickell restaurant’s brunch is setting the bar for a memorable mid-day meal.

Fi’lia’s brunch menu combines new selections and old favorites from its lunch and dinner menu. Whether you’re in the mood for more breakfast-y food or hearty pastas and mains, the Italian eatery has you covered.

Patrons who fall under the first category should focus on the top half of the menu. There, you’ll find egg-focused selections alongside pancakes and other traditional morning cuisine. A must: the Soft Scramble. We’ve never seen eggs so fluffy, and they just melt in your mouth. The Smoked Wild Salmon is just as good, too, especially if you’re a fan of lox.

Feeling fancy? The Braised Short Rib Crespelle with fontina, taleggio and bechamel is a cheese lover’s dream and has a richness that will make your taste buds perk up. Same goes for the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, a delectable stack that you’ll devour in no time. Thank God that Equinox is around the corner.

The beauty of Fi’lia’s brunch is that you can load up on just small plates — there are so many — or get a few and stuff your face with larger entrees.  These bigger plates should look very familiar if you’ve been to the restaurant before. The Rigatoni Bolognese, for example, is just as good for brunch as it is for dinner. In this section of the menu, there are also more breakfast selections like a Breakfast Pizza if you want to stick to morning fare.

When it comes to dessert, there are only two words you need to know: Panna Cotta. So simple and clean, it’s the perfect ending to your meal (especially if you overate — guilty as charged). The lemon and thyme flavors will have you reminiscing long after you take your last bite.

Thinking of making a reservation? On a beautiful day, you need to sit outside. The patio is just super chill and nice, and the DJ is great. But again, that’s why we love Fi’lia for brunch: good food and good vibes galore.

Fi’lia is located inside the SLS Brickell at 1300 S Miami Ave. in Brickell. For hours of operation and other information, visit their official website or call 305-239-1330.
