Brunch O'Clock feat. Ormsby's

It's almost time for the weekend (t-minus 2 hours, not that I'm counting), and you know what the means?! Brunch. I don't know about you, but in my book 'brunch' is a verb. I recently took my talents and appetite over to the Westside! Ormsby's has added brunch to their repertoire, who is known by most for the games and fun atmosphere. When I found out the good news, I decided to make a reservation stat! 



So, my best friend of 20+ years and I nestled into the booth and got to work aka looking over the menu. The Ormsby's team was extremely welcoming and made us feel like VIP with our 'Reserved' sign on the table. Not long after getting settled in, Michael (one of the General Mangers) came over to greet us! He went over the delicious brunch items and mentioned a few of their refreshing cocktails. My BFF and I both went with the Classic Champagne Cocktail with cherry bitters. OMG - life changing. You must order one when you go!


As we sipped on our champs, we decided to go with something healthy to start. I'm all about balance! And with Chicken & Waffles on the menu, I need I should add some veggies to my meal. I am a sucker for anything with sriracha and when I noticed their Crispy Brussels, Goat Cheese, Pancetta were topped with a Sriracha Mayo, I about died. Serious salivation going on!  


With the champs flowing (kidding, I am only on my first at this stage), we decided it was time to figure out which route we were going! While everything sounded amazing (including their French Toast + Shrimp & Grits), I opted for the Salmon Croquette Benedict (poached eggs, salmon croquette, wilted spinach, English muffin, hollandaise) complete with a side of chipotle cheddar grits.




My friend went with the Corned Beef & Hash (braised corned beef, potato hash, sunny side up egg, steamed cabbage). I had a bite, just to taste test, and it was phenomenal! First time having this classic Irish dish, and it won't be my last! PS - It's in the BFF handbook that you always share a bite (or three).





As we began to finish our entrees, Michael came out to ask if we'd saved room for dessert. While I go in with good intentions, I always ask to see what's on the menu. He said they had an incredible Fried PB&J, and I promptly told him to say no more! #Sold #PeanutButterLover


A Fried PB&J + another Champagne Cocktail with lavender bitters this time, and I felt like I was in heaven. BEST. MEAL. EVER. 


Thank you so much to the Ormby's chef and staff for serving up the Southern hospitality! If you're looking for a new brunch spot, I highly recommend you try them and their ridiculous menu out. As always, you can thank me later!

XO,
Kel

  1. I haven't tried Ormsby's for brunch yet. I love going there at night and I've recently noticed the "Now Serving Brunch" sign. I love all kinds of Eggs Benedict and that Salmon Croquette one looks delicious! I'm definitely going to have to check it out!
