Long Story Long:
It’s been a very long time since I have had a brunch quite like this one for many reasons – 1. I felt underdressed 2. It was a buffet 3. I was not hungover… much 4. I didn’t pay and 5. I actually drank champagne and briefly considered the OJ…. It looked really, really delicious. In any case, this place is really amazing – I mean, the dessert table alone… wow. So… many… choices….! I wish I had more pics but since this is sort of a classy joint, I felt really odd whipping out my camera (even disguised as a phone) in the middle of the buffet line… you don’t want to piss off hungry southerners, trust me. Anyways, highlights were the AMAZING cheese grits and the mini waffles, and the pumpkin bread pudding. Holy shit. I can’t speak for the lunch options as I really had my hands full with the breakfast side. Points for unlimited champagne and AMAZING coffee. As this brunch was sponsored, I didn’t bother investigating the bloody situation… though honestly, I was much too full for one anyway. Hangover Before: None! crazy! Hangover After: full
