If you slept in late but still want to start the day right, this is the place to go! In addition to receiving high marks for its fun, family-friendly atmosphere, the joint serves breakfast eats and downhome favs like she-crab soup and shrimp-n-grits all day long (that qualifies as brunch, right?). When you go, be prepared to see all walks of life – from judges and CEO's to working men and women – as just about everyone claims Eddie's one of their favorite places for breakfast and brunch.
When Zinc made its Uptown debut in 2004, its approach to American classics like chicken, fish and steak was nothing short of a breath of fresh air. That's not to say that the kitchen endeavors to totally recreate tried and true dishes, but what it does seek to do is give them a few unexpected turns. Ergo, your Alaskan halibut may come with a side of grits, or your salmon may have horseradish crust. The same spirit applies to sinfully good brunch pairings like poached eggs and crab cakes or roasted leg of lamb sandwich with feta and mint pesto. Then, of course, there's the Bloody Mary bar ...
Just a short jump from SouthPark Mall, the Village Tavern has garnered a well-earned rep as one of the neighborhood's more laid-back fine dining establishments. Indeed, the place welcomes folks from all walks of life and rarely fails to hit its mark, whether it's for Sunday brunch's waffles and omelets or dinner's hand-cut steaks and wood-oven pizzas. You'll also find conservatively priced wine and spirits menus and a well-rounded selection of beer.
Nothing fancy or over-the-top, this may be a popular neighborhood watering hole at night – heck, it even gets high marks for its specialty martinis, country-fried chicken and hearty, homemade meatloaf. But what has truly impressed the regulars over the years is Jackalope Jacks' Sunday brunch, which is billed as the "best in town." Considering the tasty choices include build-it-yourself omelets, orders of bangers and mash, and traditional English breakfasts, who can argue with such a claim?
300 East has a sophisticated European feel – a bit Bohemian, a bit Champs-Elysées – and always makes for a memorable evening. The antique mahogany bar is where you'll find one of the best martinis anywhere, and, unlike some bars, 300 East's food is the perfect complement to your libations. They also boast a full Sunday brunch menu, including veggie eggs Benedict and a light breakfast of bagels and fruit. Sandwiches, salads and selected entrées are also available. On seasonable days, snag a table on the outside patio surrounded by cascading lantana and black-eyed susans.
