For a fun family gathering, book a table at Patio Isola. At this neighborhood favorite, you’ll find pastas and pizzas galore along with other tasty Italian specialties. The restaurant is spacious, so large groups are welcome. That’s also the best way to experience this restaurant, as you’ll want to try a little bit of everything. Can’t decide on what to get for yourself? The fried mozzarella, the cheesy garlic bone marrow, the bucatini, and the eggplant parm are just a few of the individual highlights on this menu. If you feel like sharing, the meatball pie can feed a table of two – possibly four, depending on hunger levels. And there’s a full bar available to make sure nobody leaves thirsty.
RED South Beach
Is Easter brunch a family tradition? Make it extra memorable this year with a stop at RED South Beach, the premier Miami Beach steakhouse. The restaurant serves up a lavish Sunday menu with unlimited brunch tapas like blue crab ravioli, oysters on the half shell, truffle pasta, salads, and more plus your choice of entrée, which range from filet Oscar benedict and loster pot pie to king salmon and chicken and waffles. Unlimited champagne is also included. Calling this brunch decadent is an understatement. The restaurant will also be open for dinner service.
The Lobster Shack
If you’re not in the mood to dress up for Easter, come on down to The Lobster Shack on South Beach. The laidback lobster spot is perfect for a no-frills holiday outing. Enjoy the restaurant’s signature lobster rolls or opt for one of the other top sellers like shrimp tacos, snow crab, or baked oysters. There’s even a separate kid’s menu for your little ones featuring items like cheese quesadillas and PB&Js. The best part: Everything is reasonably priced by South Beach standards.

And of course, you can’t leave without trying something off Toscana’s larger-than-life wine list.
