I’m clearly on a Mexican kick this month. And also a brunch kick to fill all this idle winter time in the city. Last weekend, with a blistering cold Sunday ahead, we warmed up at Cosme with a killer meal. Cosme has been high on my brunch list for a while, ever since I read that the menu was entirely gluten free.

To start, we dived right in with three mushroom quesadillas, which were huge portions filled with queso cheese and served with a green salsa. This was yummy but straightforward – it is, after all, tortillas and cheese.

We also ordered coffees for the table, which they served with steamed milk and petite cookies, a lovely personal touch.

Next up was the huevos rancheros served with refried black beans, mushrooms, and queso fresco. This was a really special dish, and much more authentic than anything I’ve had in the past.

I also usually find huevos rancheros to be too hearty for me, and this was much lighter than the Tex Mex version I’m used to, with a salsa-like consistency.

Our favorite of the group was the red chilaquiles with egg and creme fraiche – the portion was packed with flavor and had the perfect amount of spice. I’ve never had a dish like this before and find myself day dreaming about it a week later. This was a total standout.

Cosme’s brunch scene was bustling, and without reservations we had to dine at the high top tables, so I’d recommend booking in advance. This would be a really fun spot with friends if you were in a margarita kind of a mood.

The Bitches say: A. This fancy Mexican brunch is the perfect place to drown your winter sorrows, in both margaritas and queso. Every dish is special and extremely satisfying.
