LOS FUEGOS SUNDAY ASADO BRUNCH | FAENA MIAMI BEACH
At Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann, guests can step up their Sunday brunch game with a genuine Asado experience showcasing a custom eight-foot iron dome used to slow roast flame-licked cuts of beef and market fruits and vegetables. The three-course dining experience features two hours of unlimited select champagne and Faena wines, as well as signature Argentine staples like oven-baked beef empanadas, chorizo and morcilla (blood sausage), smoked prime ribeye with criolla and chimichurri sauce, and crispy domino potatoes.
While beef is typically the star of the show, heaps of hearty vegetables also grab the spotlight. Inspired by Mallmann’s new vegetarian cookbook, Green Fire: Extraordinary Ways to Grill Fruits and Vegetables, from the Master of Live-Fire Cooking, Sunday Asados feature crispy artichokes, roasted leeks with romesco sauce, and a bright endive and parmesan salad. Other scene-stealers include roasted cauliflower and sesame yogurt, wood-fired oyster mushrooms, and ricotta-stuffed organic heirloom tomatoes. Just make sure to
leave room for the not-to-be-missed buffet dessert selection.
Unfolding poolside on the Veranda terrace, ocean breezes carry the smoky scent of fiery embers and roasting fixings as live music mingles with the sound of laughter and clinking glasses of Malbec. Every Sunday, afternoon asados at Los Fuegos offer guests the chance to be part of a beloved tradition that brings together loved ones to enjoy life and its simple pleasures.
