Breakfast of Champions



Brunch, as the last stop for the week's goods, is a time of great creativity in kitchens. Unexpected treats oftentimes crop up on brunch menus, and it's also one of the few acceptable times to drink before noon.

I am firmly in the pro-brunch camp, as evidenced by the photo above.
This particular plate was a special at Lodge, one of my most frequent brunch haunts in south Williamsburg. It's a pile of cheddar grits, pulled BBQ pork, and poached eggs.
Look at this monster! Oh, it was a glorious conquest.

I too am Pro-Brunch. Some of the best ideas have come from the Brunch table and 3 rounds of mamosas. xo, BLM

Our affinity for brunch shows that we've all become yuppies: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE4DA1439F935A35750C0A961948260
