I’m back in the States, kittens! (And so grateful for Internet access, you simply have no idea.) I’ll tell you all about my travels to beautiful Derbyshire, England, later this week.
But first, let’s take a look at this week’s agenda. For me, the focus is on Restaurant Week. I’m booked solid for fabulous dinners at restaurants I’ve been dying to try. But I’m a bit disappointed in the lack of Restaurant Week brunch menus, to be honest. In total, I’ve found only a few restaurants offering brunch specials this weekend, and the rest are simply labeled “lunch.” Who “lunches” on the weekend? Honestly.
In any case, here are the ones that I found with special menus for your Restaurant Week brunching pleasure. Remember, brunch at any of these joints this weekend will be just $20.11 per person for a multi-course meal (unless otherwise stated). If I’m missing anything amazing, please let me know.
