    First Watch Plans Several More South Florida Locations Before Year’s End

    A constant favorite for its constantly evolving menu, Bradenton -based brunch chain First Watch has been growing in South Florida, and the growth shows no sign of stopping. As the South Florida Business Journal reported this spring, the chain is anticipating three new locations before the end of 2024.

    What Now reported on one of these last year: a Hialeah Gardens location opening at 3645 West 84th St. To this can be added a new Miami location opening at the Fountain Square Shopping Mall , at 10111 W Flagler Street , and a Kendall location opening in the Shops of Kendall at 12516 SW 88 th St .

    First Watch has shown great success with its seasonally rotating menu and its emphasis on fresh ingredients.

    “Just as we greet each morning with the sunrise, we welcome each season into the First Watch menu with ingredients and flavors inspired by the position of the sun,” says the First Watch website’s Food Ethos page . “That’s why on our menu you’ll find vibrant, green California-grown asparagus in April, or the most refreshing Florida watermelon in July, or tender, sweet yellow corn from the Midwest in August.”

    Current Seasonal favorites include Shishito Brisket Hash ( Blistered shishito peppers and smoked, hand-pulled brisket in a potato hash, topped with two cage-free eggs any style, house-roasted summer sweet corn, Cheddar and Monterey Jack, house-pickled red onions, scallions, roasted garlic aioli and Maldon sea salt ) and Strawberry Tres Leches French Toast ( Thick-cut, custard-dipped challah bread griddled and topped with fresh strawberries, sweetened condensed milk, warm dulce de leche, whipped cream and spiced gingerbread cookie crumbles; lightly dusted with powdered cinnamon sugar ).
