Whoa, did you catch that? Rather than a brunch review, this is a dinner review of a place named Brunch. For Richmonders, most are like DUH, it’s the sibling to Lunch and Supper! This makes sense! For non-Richmonders, it’s a really confusing concept. Now, it’s time to wrap your heads around a restaurant named Brunch that serves a wicked brunch… and now dinner.Read More
One of my favorite dad jokes is to walk into an empty restaurant, turn to a friend and say, “Like how I rented it out for you?”
No one ever laughs, so I keep saying it, waiting for it to land. FINALLY my friend chuckled when I said it as we walked into Perch for brunch this Sunday. We considered making reservations, but since we showed up at 10:03 a.m. and the place opens at 10 a.m., we thought we’d be safe.
And that we were.Read More
If you read this blog often or follow us on Instagram, you likely know that one of Cazey’s favorite brunch spots in Richmond was Star-Lite, so when we found out it was closing, we immediately made plans to go to their final brunch service to say our goodbyes.
You know what they say, though, when one door shuts, another door opens.
And that door happens to be to Brunch, the latest companion restaurant to Lunch | Supper.Read More
You wouldn’t normally think of Matchbox Vintage Pizza Bistro in Short Pump as a brunch spot based on its name, but you’d be deceived. I have had several friends brunch here in the past, including Sara, and all had delivered rave anecdotes. I had been meaning to try it, too, especially since Matchbox has participated in Richmond Brunch Weekend for the last two years.
Thankfully, last weekend I got to check out their menu with Sara. Even better, we got to try out their newest menu – a bottomless brunch they’ve labeled the “Brunchbox.” Our special invitation came with a caveat: we had to be filmed for a promo Matchbox was shooting. Because of this, we didn’t get a lot of great photos we took. Instead, we had to take bites of the food for the camera before we could snap our own. For that reason, we’re using photos taken by local food photographer Deb Lindsey.Read More
A few months ago, I saw a picture on Instagram of Hobnob's pimento cheese BLT. It looked amazing, dripping in soft, melty pimento cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado on sourdough. Then I forgot about it in the chaos of life and the entire summer went by.
For reasons that I don't understand, the vision of this pimento cheese sandwich came back into my head this week and I began to obsess over a sandwich I've never had (again). The only reasonable thing a gal can do in a situation like this is GO GET THE SANDWICH.Read More
Considering I go to Connecticut as infrequently as possible these days (it's a hellish commute up the eternally-congested 95 corridor), it's funny to think we have a 'regular' spot to go to brunch. Perhaps it's because it's relatively close, or because it's one of the only options with alcohol, or perhaps it's because Witchdoctor Brewing is right down the road. But any way it shakes out, I've been to 75 Center twice for brunch now and once for dinner, which statistically means it's the most likely place for me to brunch in Connecticut.
And I'm alright with that. More than alright, actually.Read More
I first heard about Salt & Forge from an old coworker, who's review was that it was, "Stupidly delicious!"
Needless to say, I need to be where the stupidly delicious biscuits are.
Caz and I both hit the gym separately, and then met up to undo all the good work we did at the gym at Salt & Forge.Read More
After months of planning, posting, eating and walking from door-to-door of over 40 restaurants (that last one was all Cazey), it's FINALLY Richmond Brunch Weekend. The only box left to check at this point is heading out to brunch on Saturday and Sunday, and we want you to join us! Not only will 15 percent of your order will go back to local cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center, but you might even win the ultimate Richmond prize package.
Intrigued? Here's how to win at Richmond Brunch Weekend:Read More
The Massey Mimosa is kind of like a dog. You love them all, but that doesn't make them all the same. We have over 20 restaurants creating a Massey Mimosa, and invited them to jazz up the drink however these choose. We encourage creativity. That means if you try one Massey Mimosa, you'll still need to try at least 19 more since they'll all be different. Muah ha ha, but don't feel bad about drinking so many mimosas because $1 from every Massey Mimosa goes back to VCU Massey Cancer Center.Read More
On a rainy Saturday afternoon, I decided I didn’t feel like making lunch so I should go to brunch. I texted my friend Kejdi, and we made our way to a new Richmond Brunch Weekend restaurant, Eggspress. I couldn’t find out much about Eggspress online other than the Yelp menu looked pretty good, so I was excited.
Eggspress is tucked away in Northside. At least I think it’s Northside; I feel like I don’t know Richmond neighborhoods well beyond the Fan, Museum District, and Jackson Ward. I don’t know what that means about me as a person. Anyhow, Eggspress is along Brookland Park Boulevard. My friend remarked that reminds her of a whole other town. If it hadn’t been raining, I would have walked around and taken some cool Instagrams. (Now that probably says even more about me as a person.)Read More
