They say when the going gets tough, the tough get brunch. So where do all these tough guys go when omelets and mimosas call?
If they’re smart, they head to one of these restaurants, recommended by thrillist:
Lucile’s: If your cravings lean toward Creole cooking, this is the spot for you. Here, you’ll get “giant, flaky buttermilk biscuits” with nearly any order. And those orders are mouth-watering. Pick from customer favorites like Lucile’s po-boys, crawfish etoufée, eggs Rockefeller, and shrimp and grits.
Urban Egg: Urban Egg offers brunch basics at their best, “from Benedicts, housemade biscuits and gravy, and three different types of avocado toast to the award-winning cinnamon swirl pancakes and indulgent stuffed French toast,” notes thrillist. The Egg has eight locations from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins.
Onefold: Forget ho-hum waffles and eggs, this brunch is for the culinary adventurous. thrillist recommends the restaurant’s bacon fried rice (topped with eggs fried in duck fat) and congee (Asian-style rice porridge). If you prefer more conservative fare, try Onefold’s breakfast burritos (“with the indulgent addition of duck fat fried potatoes”) or crepes.
Sassafras American Eatery: Here, you’ll find a Southern style brunch – complete with unusual mimosa flavors and 24-ounce Bloody Marys. thrillist likes the chicken pimento biscuit with duck fat country gravy, fried green tomato Benedict, and breakfast mac-n cheese with cornbread croutons. And don’t miss the “sugar-dusted beignets with a side of jam,” y’all.
The Corner Office: Boston cream pancakes? Pineapple upside down bun? What? You heard us right: This serious sweetness is served every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Start with sage sausage gravy on a buttermilk biscuit, followed by several choices of eggs Benedict; then add in the no-miss pancakes or bun and drink it all down with bottomless mimosas for the best time you’ll ever have in an office.
