Mad Hatters Brunch Series Returns at Isabelle’s in Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove

Isabelle’s at The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove is relaunching its Mad Hatters Brunch Series from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday through May 26. The second edition, ‘The Queen of Hearts,’ will feature a themed brunch menu and a special cocktail menu by Miami food influencer Gio Gutierrez (@chatchowtv). The event collaborates with Gutierrez and presents three specialty cocktails paired with delightful bites, creating an enchanting evening experience that complements the daytime festivities at Isabelle’s. Guests can enjoy the whimsical Mad Hatters Brunch on Sundays and continue their magical journey with the After Dark series at The Commodore on Saturday evenings.

The limited-time dining experience at Isabelle’s outdoor garden terrace promises to invigorate the senses and transport brunch enthusiasts and Alice in Wonderland fans to a whimsical playground. Along with the themed decor, festive tea party games, and a DJ, the terrace is decked with oversized planters, natural wood tables, and plush cushions on woven chairs, all nestled amidst lush green landscaping. With all these elements, diners can revel in a unique brunch experience they’re unlikely to find elsewhere.

Isabelle’s team has collaborated with Gutierrez to create four unique cocktails named ‘The Queen of Hearts’ ($20 each) for the remaining series period. The cocktails include Wonderland Whimsy Refresher, Celebratory Airmail With A Story To Tell made with Havana Club Añejo Blanco, honey syrup, lime, and bubbles; Red Queen Hibiscus Cosmopolitan, an updated twist on the classic Cosmopolitan made with UNA Vodka, Cointreau, cranberry, lime, hibiscus tea, glitter; Through The Looking Glass, a White Negroni like no other made with Bombay Sapphire gin, Bianco vermouth, Luxardo bitter, orange oils; and the Queen Of Hearts Tea Elixir, Teatime with a Punch made with Dewar’s 12 whisky, peach, coconut water, mint. Additionally, customers can enjoy bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Marys, or Bellinis ($39) every week during brunch.

In addition to the a la carte brunch menu, the restaurant offers delectable specialties such as the Strawberry & Champagne Pancakes ($21) topped with strawberry champagne syrup and delicate gold leaf and the Queen’s Royal Hash ($22) made with potato, onion, and leek hash, perfectly poached eggs, and drizzled with a decadent three cheese sauce. Guests can also choose to elevate the dish in three styles: Cheshire Cat Style with smoked salmon and Tobiko caviar, Mad Hatter Style with grilled kielbasa, or Grow Me with exotic mixed mushrooms and truffle.

Isabelle’s has invited attendees of the tea party to relish spring flavors with their dessert spread. The Curious and Curiouser Carousel ($45) is a rotating display of six delectable desserts, which includes Coconut Carmelia Mousse, Pistachio Cherry Mousse Dome, Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Bar, Vanilla Bean Rum Cake, Choco Raspberry Mousse, and Ube Cake with Tropical Fruit Curd and Coconut Ganache.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
