With so many couples opting for destination weddings, post-wedding brunches have become a favorite way to unwind from the previous night’s festivities and wrap up an unforgettable wedding experience. Although newlyweds probably have a chance to visit with each guest during the reception, sharing one more meal together the next day is the best kind of “farewell” before the honeymoon. At the recently opened Eden Roc Miami Beach restaurant, Malibu Farm, couples are provided with the perfect place to host a post-wedding brunch – complete with oceanfront views, a colorful menu, and a fabulous Floridian atmosphere.
Malibu Farm is a rapidly expanding farm-to-table movement founded by Swedish native, cookbook author and farmer, Chef Helene Henderson. Born from Helene’s intimate dinner parties in her expansive garden, Malibu Farm found its first home on the pier in Malibu, California and has now found a new home on the East coast at Eden Roc Miami Beach. Offering a selection of local healthy selections, sustainable and fresh-of-the-farm fare, Malibu Farm seeks to bring the farm-to-table concept to Miami locals and health-savvy travelers from all around the world.
This bright and airy restaurant has everything newlyweds and their guests could want for one last wedding weekend “hurrah.” Surround yourself with loved ones and indulge in Malibu Farm’s extensive menu of brunchtime favorites like breakfast burritos, a BLT Caesar salad, cauliflower crust pizza, chicken ricotta burgers, crab cakes, and quesadillas. You can even order larger dishes for the table, allowing everyone to dine family-style.
Of course, no brunch would be complete without a tipple or two (or more). Along with an impressive wine list, Malibu Farm mixes up some delectable handcrafted cocktails featuring infused organic agave syrups, freshly squeezed juices, and local produce. Try something sweet with botanist gin, prosecco, rosemary pear agave, and lemon juice; go spicy with tequila, jalapeno agave, lime, and a kaffir lime sea salt rim; opt for tangy with honeybush tea infused 1792 bourbon, agave, and grapefruit; or embrace the classics with Malibu Farm’s Bloody Mary made from heirloom tomatoes.
Directly overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Malibu Farm has that idyllic blend of casual luxury, comfort, and relaxation. Enjoy it by wining and dining with your favorite people while indulging in a much-deserved post-wedding brunch.
