Foodie Find: Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne
The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne is spicing up Sundays with a Southern Jazz Brunch. On the third Sunday of the month the place is rolling out New Orleans specialties such as the corn spoon bread & seared scallop pictured here. There’s also an ocean’s worth of seafood at the raw bar including oysters, shrimp and stone crabs. Plus ribs rubbed in every direction, dirty rice, and other specialties from New Orleans. Of course, brunch regulars such as eggs benedict, French toast and bacon make delicious appearances while the dessert selection is plentiful enough to require it’s own room. As an entertaining side, there’s a five-piece brass band, a tarot card research and a magician.
