After having a late night on Saturday I was definitely in need of a considerable amount of food to start my Sunday off right. Alexa, M, and I headed down to the Olde English to try out their brand new menu on the first day of serving brunch. We arrived early enough to snag a nice table out front where we enjoyed the perfect weather and watched passersby enjoying themselves as much as we were.
We were all on the same page when it came to brunch beverages, so we ordered a carafe of Bloody Marys.
They are so spicy and so perfect. I was really tempted to get the Seamus Bloody Mary Brunch Special, but there were just too many extras that went along with it. (Plus, I had my eye on something else off of the new menu.)
Anywho- the Seamus's Bloody Mary was garnished with bacon, Dubliner cheddar, a cocktail wiener, chilled shrimp, and.... a beef slider! I've already decided and I'm getting that next time I go, no matter what.
I ended up ordering the spinach & feta benedict.
It was absolutely amazing, the English muffin was perfectly toasted and the homemade Hollandaise was fabulous. The amount of lemon was the perfect complement to bring out the flavors of the spinach, roasted red peppers, and feta.
Whenever I go to a new brunch place and see eggs benedict on the menu I order it. Not only because its my all time favorite meal, ever. But I tend to judge them on how well they execute the poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. As much as I loved this dish I was a little disappointed that there was nothing else to accompany it. Eggs benny in every other restaurant is served with home fries of some sort and I definitely would have enjoyed them. So, I ended up snagging a few shoestring fries off M's plate.
M ordered the breakfast burger which is a chuck and short rib burger, lettuce, tomato, onion, pub mustard, avocado, a fried egg and those fries.
Pretty amazing, right? I made sure to take a bite for myself and this burger is to die for.
