Waistband-busting comfort food classics and warm, friendly service are the defining characteristics of Blue Collar, one of Daniel Serfer’s popular Miami-based restaurants. The menu is a parade of inventive dishes, from the duck “McMuffin” made with duck bacon, a duck egg sunny side up, and a toe-curlingly rich duck jus, to Southern staples like shrimp and grits, served with Trugole cheese, Neuske bacon and a New Orleans style BBQ sauce. And the dedicated veggies chalkboard over the bar showcases sides like caramelised brussel sprouts and waffle-cut sweet potato fries that are tasty enough to convert even the most ardent meat-lover to a solely veg-based existence.
Long weekend brunches are a big draw at Blue Collar, best enjoyed with a glass of house-squeezed lemonade or specially-brewed iced tea. And, come evening, diners can choose from a curated collection of international craft beers, wine, or up the romantic ante with some French Champagne.
