Who says that eggs are only for the a.m. hours? Who says
that a properly made mimosa can’t be enjoyed after dark? We don’t know either…
because when it comes to enjoying breakfast foods for dinner, the Yelp Miami
Elite Squad is all business and bellinis. An intimate group of yelpers
descended upon Coconut Grove fan-favorite, GreenStreet Café, for a sit-down
evening of great conversation, delicious drinks and potent potables. Would you
expect any less when Yelp Serves Up Brinner?
Guests were invited to sit in the private back-room area of
GreenStreet Café, where they were surrounded by bookcases, brick walls, elegant
chandeliers, and plush royal seating — fitting for a king (or, Community
Director). As each member walked in the room, they were led to sit in the order
in which they arrived. This event was gearing up to be a family affair and
though they might have entered as strangers, they left as friends and fellow
Elites. The fruit salad bowls waiting on the table as they entered sparked the
conversation and the Red Geisha Bloody Mary and Prosecco Mimosas courtesy of Cupcake Vodka and Cupcake Prosecco kept it flowing — literally.
Even though Miamians are known to enjoy a liquid lunch (or,
five), this was brinner; living on liquid alone would not do. Luckily, the
culinary craftspeople in the GSC cocina were on top of their game. Course after
course of family-style servings of Scrambled Eggs with Cream Cheese & Chives; Locally-sourced Applewood Sausage; Fig Salad with mixed greens, dried
figs, tomatoes, aged cheese, pita, & pecans; Chorizo Pizza; Chicken Curry Ravioli;
and Mini Pancakes & Muffins, filled bellies and created smiles.
The best way to get to know someone is to break bread with
her… and that’s exactly what happened during the event. There was carousing,
singing, clapping, smiling, laughter, and the kind of joyful noise that comes
about because of good food, good people and good drink. Providing impeccable
service from start to finish and from bar to dining room, GSC made the Yelp
Elite Squad feel like family. Ace photog Alex H took the family portraits you
can find here. And, the family records are right around here. Change things up.
Meet new people. Eat pancakes for dessert. Enjoy breakfast for dinner with your
new best friends.
