Everything you need to know about visiting Pinch (8601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33138).
Nestled inside a small white house on Biscayne Boulevard, Pinch Kitchen is a neighborhood gem. The home-style eatery specializes in new American cuisine with a twist, serving up skirt steak with spicy Brussel sprouts, roasted beets topped with herbed goat cheese and rose water golden raisins and a vibrant ceviche mixed with fresh corvina, shrimp, white corn, red onion and aji limo. If you’re into dessert, try its orange chocolate soufflé, which stuffs a fluffy chocolate cake inside a petite orange; or homemade baba au rhum, a buttery dark rum cake drizzled in a sweet sauce with a scoop of thyme gelato.
The best brunch in Miami
Hidden chef’s table notwithstanding, every seat at Pinch seems like the best in the house. Noise never rises above a murmur and you’ll always find the right amount of natural light peeking through the large windows overlooking the street. Sharing is the way to go: Start with the Egg in a Basket; featuring crispy potato covered in espuma and served alongside whole-wheat toast and crispy speck, then move on to stuffed brioche French toast with guava and whipped cream cheese. Willing to go halfsies on either dish? This relationship will go the distance.
