You already know Klaw for its gargantuan Norwegian King Crab that fly first class from Norway to the 305, now preparate to know it for its rooftop brunch.
Picture feasting on crab claws and six to seven preset family-style dishes (that rotate weekly, btw) and imbibing carafes of sancerre whilst you take in some of the best unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay. More of a cocktail-goer for brunch time? They’re mixing up plenty of cocktails with a twist, like Strawberry 75‘s, Watermelon Mimosas, and Roasted Vegetable Bloody—wait for it—Mary.
As for the food, on our recent visit, selections included Dressed Oysters; Spring Radish Salad with whey butter and Sicilian anchovies; a Niçoise Salad with crispy potatoes and a next-level olive oil cured tuna. We fell head over heels with the Red Snapper Crudo with passionfruit and Thai basil over leche de Tigre. ‘Occhi’ of sheep’s milk ricotta with lemon butter and shaved speck was unexpectedly delightful. But the Gougère stuffed with deviled egg and topped with ossetra caviar put all other deviled eggs to shame. Sorry not sorry.
Obviously we tried all five out of five entree options (pro tip: make your brunch a fivesome). Klaw’s Pea Risotto is a must, especially if you love spring peas in season like I do; bright and crisp and paired perfectly with hazelnuts, parmigiana and a poached egg, it’s flawless. Although there isn’t anything particularly unique or novel about Truffle covered Grilled Scallops adorned with fresh black truffle slices and brown buttered asparagus, it’s black truffle and scallops, soooo…
Grilled Swordfish, which we love to see on menus, makes an appearance here with coal roasted onions, topped with a salsa verde. Duck “Steak & Eggs” features an 8-oz dry aged liberty duck from Sonoma that’s been spiced with a miso rub and served with two sunny eggs. Yep. And lastly, a Florida cracker beef Pastrami Hash with two sunny eggs and a side of potatoes will cure any hangover or pair perfectly with some hair of the dog. Speaking of which…
Enhance your brunch with boozy packages including The B & V (bubbles and vodka) with fresh orange juice and Bloody Mary mix to pair or the Sancerre program that gives you the option to pick between a white, pink or red carafe for $30 or opt-in for all three at the sweet price of $75. Can we make Sancerre Sundays a thang?
Oh, and fret not—Norwegian King Crab legs and claws as well as Heritage Steaks are also on deck and a la carte during brunch. And desserts… just get them all. You won’t regret a bite. Klaw’s brunch is available from 11am to 3pm every Sunday on the rooftop bar for $75++pp. See you there Miami, Santé.
