Oolite Delivers Brunch and Much More
By Jessica Fernandez @gourmetgirl305
South Florida is teeming with amazing brunch spots, but where can you get an amazing brunch that is also gluten-free? Head on down to Miami-native Chef Kris Wessel’s latest offering Oolite and you can get just that, and much more. Set in a superior South Beach location with easy access to parking and local attractions, Oolite is quickly becoming a gathering spot for locals and tourists alike. The serenely natural beach feel, is the first thing you notice about the décor, from the limestone walls to the artfully arranged foliage; which is highly appropriate given that the whole concept behind Oolite is local, natural and healthy. Chef Wessel sources his ingredients from the farms and waters of South Florida, arranging a menu around the flavors of the season. This results in fresh flavors and aromas permeating every dish. Come for brunch, Saturday & Sundays, from 11 am – 5 pm., and you will not only be treated to a plethora of menu choices but you will also be lulled into relaxation by the live musical performances. The brunch features a gourmet pastry/baked goods bar, all gluten-free and baked fresh on-site. You have the choice of selecting the Beach Brunch which comes with an entrée, the fresh fruit & baked goods bar along with coffee, tea, or juice for only $26.99 or you can go with the very popular Bottomless Brunch that includes all of the above plus bottomless Dragon-fruit Bellini’s, Seasonal Mimosas and the house specialty Guajillo Bloody Mary’s (they are amazing!), for just $39.99. There are a wide variety of entrée choices to choose from: savory “Cuban Soul” lechon Eggs Benedict, mouth-watering Fontina Cheese, Mushroom & Tamarind duck Omelettes and Kris Wessel’s Special BBQ Shrimp & Grits; to fluffy flaxseed buttermilk pancakes, a house smoked &cured smoked salmon platter or Roasted Island Banana French Toast, all served with three-squash potato hash to round out the dish. If you are looking for a charming spot for brunch, with healthy menu choices, beautiful ambiance and the laid back cool that only South Beach can offer; then look no further than Chef Kris Wessel & Oolite.
