Fathers Day

Father's Day at Jungle Island

On Father's Day, Jungle Island will proudly partner with Steve Haas's City Hall the Restaurant to bring back a one-day pop-up Gospel Jazz brunch with special performances by Miami's bonafide gospel diva, Maryel Epps. While Maryel once reverberated her awe-inspiring voice against the walls of the 6,000 square-foot establishment, she is now bringing her talents to a most unique setting in the jungle. Families are invited to enjoy this much-anticipated return, and receive half-off park admission with the purchase of brunch.                                

For this event, Chef Luis Lopez conjured up a menu featuring familiar City Hall fan-favorites including: 

  • Fried Chicken & Corn Flake Crusted French Toast: Vanilla-glazed, cornflake crusted, grand marnier French toast topped with crispy, lightly spicy buttermilk-dipped Southern fried chicken and served with maple syrup. 
  • Braised Beef Short Ribs: 24-hour braised short ribs served with creamy polenta and farm-raised scrambled eggs
  • Award-winning pancakes: Vanilla bean infused pancakes with chocolate chips, blueberries or banana with pecans
  • House-blend meatloaf baked with crispy onions and barbecue glaze 
  • City Hall’s famous chocolate chip bourbon croissant bread pudding 
  • New Orleans influenced shrimp & grits with tasso ham 
  • Salmon salad made with grilled north Atlantic salmon, mixed greens, Bermuda onions, radishes, strawberries, grapes, toasted sun flower seeds and passion fruit vinaigrette 
  • City Hall’s signature maple pecan butter accompanied with assortment of fresh artisan breads

The Gospel Jazz brunch will also include traditional brunch favorites and will take place in Jungle Island's signature Treetop Ballroom on Sunday, June 19, 2016. Buffet hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Performances will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $39.95 per adult and $22.95 per child.
