With a special cocktail menu created by top Miami food influencer and content creator, Gio Gutierrez, the seasonal-themed brunch menu will run every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Prepare to go mad during this limited-time dining experience that will invigorate all the senses.
A perfect perch for brunch fiends and Alice in Wonderland fans, Isabelle’s trellised outdoor garden terrace will act as a whimsical playground complete with festive tea party games and themed decor.
Decked with oversized planters, lush green landscaping, natural wood tables, and woven chairs with plush cushions, Isabelle’s outdoor oasis will allow diners to embark on an adventure down the rabbit hole.
Gutierrez, a well-known figure in the local influencer community known for the lively food-and-cocktail-related original content he regularly uploads to his popular Instagram handle @chatchowtv, has collaborated with the team at Isabelle’s to create three special Mad Hatter cocktails to be offered during the remainder of the series: The Jabberwocky, a twist on the Negroni Sbagliato made with Grey Goose essences strawberry & lemongrass, martini bitter, Martini & Rossi sweet vermouth, La Marca prosecco rosé served in a tea kettle that serves up to 4 cups ($20 per serving); Through The Looking Glass – a Mojito meets an Old Fashioned – made with Havana Club Rum 86 Proof, lime sour, cane sugar, mint essence; and Down The Rabbit Hole, a floral and shaken gin drink made with Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru, pineapple juice, lemon, blackberry jam ($20 per cocktail).
Any tea party (even those with spiked libations) is not complete without a dessert spread and this one will be no exception.
Isabelle’s invites those attending the whimsical spectacle to indulge in the sweetness of spring through the Mad Hatters Dessert Carousel ($45), a spinning presentation of exquisite desserts including Chocolate Marble Pavlova, Exotic Caramel Tarte, Black Forest Torte, Coconut Tartlet, Crème Brulee, Banana Tarte, and the Pistachio Raspberry Mousse Dome. A smaller Dessert Sampler ($24) with three sweet selections will also be available.
Dishes from the restaurant’s a la carte brunch menu will also be available to enjoy, assuring that no heads will roll due to hungry attendees.
Feast on starters like the Hearth Skillet (rosemary & coconut palm dinner rolls, wildflower honey butter), Smoked Salmon Board, and Seasonal Oysters before moving on to mouthwatering sandwich options including the Club Burger (short rib & American wagyu, applewood smoked bacon, white cheddar, port onion jam, house sauce), fresh market greens like the Spring Mizuna (sesame crusted ahi tuna, avocado, jicama, watermelon radish, cucumber, plantain, ginger passion fruit vinaigrette), or signature entrée selections like Isabelle’s Benedict (toasted Italian loaf, prosciutto, poached eggs, watercress, and hollandaise sauce) and Avocado Toast (poached eggs, avocado, pickled red onion, confit tomatoes, Everything Spice, and country bread).
Seasonal pancakes and the extraordinary Challah French Toast Skillet (Brown Sugar Streusel, Pecans, Vermont Maple Syrup, Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Whip) are a delicious way to top off an afternoon filled with festivities only made better with an order of the menu’s bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s or Bellini’s ($39), all available weekly at the beautiful Coconut Grove spot.
