Top O’ The Mornin’, Yelp Miami
Yes, we know. Waking up early (ish) on a Saturday morning is one of the most dreadful things a Miamian can imagine. We agree. But (!) when waking up early (ish) means that traditional Gaelic eats and updated libations from Mary Brickell Village superstar Fado Irish Pub & Restaurant are at the ready… well, getting up isn’t so much of a hardship. Selected members of the Yelp Miami Elite Squad discovered that to be true at Yelp’s Irish Breakfast.
Irish breakfast? Yep. In case you didn’t know, you’re about to. Fado wonderfully represented the Emerald Isle by offering eggs, Irish sausages, rashers (Irish bacon), beans, mushrooms & tomatoes, almond French toast, and cheddar Guinness bread. Top 'o the morning, indeed. And, because all that food had to be washed down in an authentically Irish way, the Pub served up one-of-a-kind Guinness Bloody Marys made with Stolichnaya Hot vodka and a Jameson Gold tasting. Sure, there was OJ and coffee too… but don’t those go better with a nip of scotch? We won’t tell. Excited Elites couldn’t believe their good fortune to discover that the food offerings at Fado were as good as the libations they already knew and loved.
As delightful as the food and drink options were, the environment was just as pleasing. The big, bright, open-air indoor patio was a stunning setting for a Saturday breakfast. As the Irish rugby team put on a clinic for their French opponents (watching sporting matches while eating is as authentically Irish as red hair & green eyes) on the television screens above, engaged Elites enjoyed the intimate and relaxed atmosphere to get the chance to know one another and interact in a prolonged way. And, who doesn’t like a long, leisurely conversation over breakfast? No one we know! Photog Alex H snapped the early birds and you can see the goods here. And after some mid-afternoon naps, satisfied Elites wrote their impressions here.
