Brunch is a godsend, mostly because it makes discussing your questionable life decisions from the previous evening with an alcoholic beverage, socially acceptable.
I’ve been hearing about Hazel’s Northeast for months, but every weekend their line is out the door and when you’re fighting off the booze sweats, waiting in the sun and smelling food while nauseous is just not plausible. So that meant there was only one solution: Tuesday brunch!
Beverage: Sake Bloody Mary. These are an acquired taste, because they have a whole different tang than a normal BM with vod. This one was made perfectly, the only thing missing was a ham/cream cheese/pickle roll up such as the ones that can be found at The Herkimer in Uptown. Yum.
Food: I was debating hardcore between the Spinach Omelette, the Granola Pancakes, and the classic breakfast. As per usual, my lust for sausage won out and I went with the traditional two egg, hashbrown, sausage combo, which was absolutely delicious.
The cool part about most restaurants in NE is the local art showcases that adorn the walls. Hazel’s Northeast was no exception. The painting above us in particular was gorgeous, unfortunately, I didn’t catch the name of the artist.
When it came to the staff our waitress was really attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Overall it was a really great Tuesday brunch experience!
