Chotto Matte’s address might read Miami Beach, but be prepared to enter the depths of the Peruvian rainforest for a truly unique experience. Exotic beats, lush surroundings, and an otherworldly vibe (complete with drummers) set the scene for the global Nikkei dining destination’s new immersive Jungle Brunch, available on Sundays. Take a walk on the wild side by opting for the unlimited drink package, complete with free-flowing Veuve Clicquot Brut and a bounty of jungle-inspired tipples like the Morning Bird, made with Bacardí Añejo Cuatro, Aperol, pineapple, shrub, and lime.
From there, choose between two sharing-style menus (one is exlusively designed for vegetarians) with items such as oak-smoked salmon tostadas topped with guacamole, lime, and cilantro; Argentinian red shrimp marinaded in a spicy coconut curry and cooked on the robata grill; bao shiitake tempura; and spicy chicken karaage made with a Nikkei rub, gochujang, lime, and jalapeño. All of this is paired with avant-garde design elements, making this brunch unlike any other in Miami. Even better? A portion of all Jungle Brunch sales benefit the South Florida Wildlife Center, which protects wildlife through rescue, rehabilitation, and education.
