Blue Collar's mission is to give off a true neighborhood hang-out vibe, which it successfully does with a huge menu of comfort food staples. Every day, the kitchen serves a different rib dish (baby back, short ribs, spare ribs, etc), parmesan dish (chicken, veal, pork, eggplant, etc), and a braised dish (brisket, pot roast, ox tails, pork shoulder). There's a whole chalkboard of vegetable sides to counter the meaty entrées, and appetizers like definitely-order-or-you'll-regret-it potato latkes. Don't even get us started on brunch -- just make sure you get there early.
If you’re in the mood for food without caloric consideration, nowhere in Miami hits the mark quite like Blue Collar. This extends to the world of hamburgers and, more specifically, to their dry-aged cheeseburger. The creation starts with dry-aged New York strip, gets the American cheese, lettuce, and tomato treatment, and finally lands between two Portuguese muffins. Because it wouldn’t be Blue Collar if it didn’t have Portuguese muffins.
How to book: Reserve via OpenTable or order via Postmates and Uber Eats.
While many cities reserve brunch for Saturday and Sunday, those cities are also catering to residents with jobs they can legally explain. Blue Collar gets Miami’s flexy lifestyle, and offers a full brunch menu all day, every day. So if you’ve got a hankering for Brioche French Toast, Shrimp and Grits, or a massive Breakfast Burrito slathered with chipotle sour cream and 3 pm on a Monday, they’re happy to oblige. You can still stop in for brunch on the weekend, too, but much like nightclubs that never close, it’s nice to know you have the option.
