Colonie

Colonie Brunch at Colonie, 127 Atlantic Ave Brooklyn. Biscuit Benedict, Duck Hash, Grits, Bloody Marys, Coffee and Freshly Fried Doughnuts with Salty Caramel Custard.

I am definitely all for the brunch thing. It's huge in NYC and people wouldn't mind waiting 2hrs for a table, for a taste of delicious pancakes or poached eggs over biscuits. Though for those same reasons, I know many who hate brunch.

Which side do you belong to?

I have heard many great things about Colonie and it only took me few years plus after moving out of the neighborhood to go try it. The Bloody Mary was good, the Duck Hash was delicious but the killer dish was the Biscuit Benedict. Once you had this, you definitely can't have eggs Benedict with English muffins anymore.

It's Okay To Drink A Bloody Mary For Dinner

Spaghetti with roasted cabbage, poblano chili and tomato plus a Bloody Mary at Allswell, WilliamsburgAllswell

I'm not ashamed to admit that this was my first Bloody Mary. I guess I'm just not a big fan of tomatoy spicy cocktails. Though while hanging out with Dax and Anais of Young and Hungry, they sold me on the Bloody Mary, after I took a sip of theirs. It was tomatoy...briney....and full of pickled vegetables, it sure made me feel healthy drinking it. And it went so well with the plate of pasta.

This was all after chowing down Thai food at No Name Bar.
