Bunches of Brunches
Itâ€™s not on the CafĂ© Hon web site yet, but according to the flier left at my door last weekend, the recently Gordon Ramsay-fied Hampden spot has returned Saturday and Sunday brunch to the menu. Brunch will be served from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
The Dogwood Restaurant, another Hampden go-to, has also resumed brunch service from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The menu includes a smattering of Tex-Mex, including Taos chiles rellenos and Park City huevos rancheros; a dash of the Irish in Bridgetâ€™s Irish breakfast of baked beans, boiled potatoes, sausage, bacon, and poached eggs; and a little touch of the South with fried Chesapeake oysters and hoppinâ€™ John. Sandwiches, salads, and burgers are also available.
The Four Seasonsâ€™ Wit and Wisdom has been open several months now, but its brunch is a new addition. The menu takes its cues from both Wit and Wisdomâ€™s dinner menuâ€”lobster corndogs, grilled rabbit boudin sausageâ€”and the menu at the hotelâ€™s LAMILL coffee shop, where fresh beignets share the menu with crab or Nutella â€śpopâ€ť pies, a gourmet take on PopTarts.Â Other brunch entrĂ©es include toad in the hole, chicken-fried steak, brioche pancakes, and a cast-iron skillet omelet. Brunch is served from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
