Cover: Brunch bible

From hangover cures to finding something different, brunch is the answer.

by

comment

In Bonfire of the Vanities, author Tom Wolfe accurately describes waking up with a hangover as feeling like being “inside an egg with the shell peeled away and only the membranous sac holding it intact … and the yolk was as heavy as mercury.”

It only makes sense that a hangover’s best cure is a marathon brunch meal at one of the metro area’s many options. It’s pretty much the Olympics of eating between sweet and savory, but there’s nothing like the yolk of a runny egg enveloping a meal.

Fancy

Since opening in Nichols Hills Plaza last year, Osteria, the concept of local chef Jonathon Stranger and Fabio Viviani of Top Chef fame, has become one of the metro area’s breakout successes. Osteria added lunch and full weekend brunch service at the start of 2019 with dishes like Chelsea’s Cinnamon Roll Supreme that features macerated berries, caramel cream and pecan pralines and a breakfast pizza with eggs, potato and ’nduja, an Italian sausage. Stranger and Viviani will partner again with Bar Cicchetti in Deep Deuce later this year.

Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge offers an Easter brunch 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday with a three-course prix-fixe meal that includes a choice of appetizer like a warm ham and cheese scone or buttermilk panna cotta with an entrée like shrimp and grits, ham steak or avocado toast and dessert of angel food cake or flourless cake for $38. Reservations are encouraged.

Boozy

The Banquet Cinema Pub is becoming a gathering place, even if you don’t have tickets to a showing of one of its first-run major release, independent or classic movies. On weekends, it offers special cocktails and a brunch menu where the Motor City Breakfast ($9.50) — a Detroit-style pan pizza with bacon, sausage, egg and maple syrup — is its most popular item.

Brunch is an everyday affair at Social Deck + Dining with a drink menu built around fun cocktails and plenty of sparkling wine. With a focus on local, organic and sustainable ingredients, it offers items like eggs Benny made with Ora King salmon cakes and chilaquiles with black beans, avocado and a sunny-side-up egg.

Relaxed

Now with two locations, one in Bricktown and another on Film Row, Stitch expands where Okay Yeah Co. left off by offering high-quality coffee and ethically sourced and sustainable food built around toasts, sandwiches, smoothies and full entrées for dinner.

Aurora Breakfast, Bar & Backyard is expanding its hours to include dinner, but its early morning offerings like vegan tacos, overnight oats and a burger made with local beef are what put it on the map.

If you’re in the mood for soul food, Bistro 46 offers a popular Sunday buffet that has a line that can extend for an hour, but it’s worth the wait.

Something different

Chae Cafe & Eatery offers brunch all day every day as well as many of the items from popular and now-closed Chae Modern Korean. It blends the U.S. tradition of brunch with Korean flavors like the short rib Benedict that has the sweet and spicy notes of gochujang.

OSO on Paseo has cornered the market on Baja tiki cocktails that are the perfect complement to its brunch menu that includes organic breakfast tacos, tater tot hash with sofrito hollandaise and churro French toast.

Kwan’s Kitchen and Grand House each offer dim sum service on the weekends.
