Many restaurants open for lunch and then close until dinner service. While that’s not a problem for those who eat between noon and 2 pm, it can be inconvenient for those of us who eat lunch a little later. Thankfully, we can always count on these Miami restaurants for an off-hour meal.
If your lunch time is closer to dinner time, then Batch Gastropub is the place to go; the Brickell restaurant opens at 4 p.m. for service. Grab a seat and nosh on duck potstickers, truffle fries, shrimp and lobster rolls, pulled pork sandwiches, and more. The beer selection here is extensive, so plan to stay awhile. The best part: Everything is reasonably priced, so you’ll leave with a full belly and wallet.
