One of my favorite meals to eat out is brunch. I can’t really offer a precise definition of this hybrid term, other than “in-between” – as the word itself is a cross between breakfast and lunch, so is the meal itself: either the cuisine, or the time of day, or both. Here, I present some of my favorite brunches from the past few years. Enjoy!
Alderwood smoked salmon frittata with herbed cream cheese and home fries at Bluegrass Grill
Crab and shrimp cake Benedict from Lakeshore Grille
Biscuit with local sausage and eggs and a side of stone ground grits from The Farmer’s Daughter
Eggs Benedict florentine with hash brown casserole from The Big Chill
Farmer’s Omelette (sausage, mushroom, onion, and cheese omelette on home fries covered in gravy) at City Cafe Diner
Shrimp and grits from Foodworks
Two eggs with sausage and hash brown patties at Karl’s Family Restaurant

The very best brunch I’ve ever eaten, I unfortunately did not get a good photo of. But it was Pickett’s Trout Benedict over griddle cakes with champagne Hollandaise and a side of shaved Brussel sprouts, from 212 Market on Valentine’s Day in 2015.
