The Monarch

after a friday night out, is there really anything better than a delicious brunch with bloody marys and bottomless mimosas? we think not. shampoo effect anyone? 

we were excited to check out the monarch this past saturday. it's not in our designated neighborhoods, but it's definitely worth the short cab ride for not only the amazing food but also for the old school tunes. the food has a creative simplicity to it that leaves you wanting more. we started with the sweet spiced pretzel with raisin cream cheese and then followed with the fried green tomato and croissant egg sandwiches. this combo can cure any hangover and it was just, well, SO good. 

we learned from colin burke (the owner) that their chef, michael destefano, is only 27 years old. we can imagine he has a great team of support, but whatever he is doing- he has got to keep it up! his menu is spot on and the bottomless mimosas don't hurt either ;) now hurry on over there to check it out. we are dying to go back for dinner, looks equally as delicious!

p.s. they also have a great patio in the back that is calling our name...hurry up spring!
