Brunch is back – at the Elbow Room, at least.
Though it seems like brunch never went out of style for the post-party crowd, the after-church group or the people who just aren’t ready for lunch, the Fig Garden Village restaurant is offering brunch once again after not doing it for years.
As of mid-October, the Elbow Room serves brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., instead of opening at its regular 11 a.m.
The change involved the creation of several new dishes for the brunch menu.
Now you’ll find on open-faced focaccia scramble on the menu with this creative combination of ingredients: “Soft scrambled eggs atop toasted focaccia flatbread with caramelized onions, bacon, Muenster cheese, chives, fresh tarragon, Fresno chile, goat cheese, creme fraiche, and flat leaf parsley.”
On the decadent side, there’s Bananas Foster waffles (with rum, banana liqueur, brown sugar and a dollop of cream cheese) and crème brûlée French toast.
More traditional entrees are available, too, including huevos rancheros, ham and eggs and chicken and waffles.
You can still order off the lunch menu during those hours if you really have a hankering for a cheeseburger and fries at 10 a.m.
Bloody Marys and mimosas are on the menu, too. There are also all kinds of coffee drinks available, from a caramel latte to an espresso.
