Reader KM & I Exchange Brunch Recommendations
I recently got a note through FaceBook from KM, a reader, asking me for brunch recommendations for this coming Easter Sunday. He correctly anticipated mob scenes at some brunch locales, and with Easter being only a few days away, I recommended a few places that I thought had great food, plenty of space, and take reservations. In the end, I asked KM for his brunch recommendations and he gave me a bunch! I’m telling you what… brunch is my fave fuckin’ meal of the week, Yo!
Time is tight, but see if you can get a reservation at Ambrozia up on Merrimon Ave in NAVL. The last time I was there, the $20 fixed price menu was awesome, and very filling. Great atmosphere, especially for adults, and a fantastic bar program if you want drinks. If they are full, try for good old Chestnut’s on Biltmore Ave. Great food, under thirty bucks for sure, and a very comfy atmosphere. Finally, consider Isa’s Bistro right by the giant iron sculpture. The crab cake Benedict was awesome, and the room is huge and bright and sunny.I hope that was helpful! If none of those work out, hit me up again, and I’ll suggest some others.I think you’ve hit most of the places we like. We do like Limones. Desoto was pretty good and we like Mojo bluegrass brunch. Jerusalem Garden has some amazing potatoes on their brunch menu. Foggy Mountain also was real good and pretty quiet.
