American gastropub Spitzer's Corner will debut their new brunch menu this weekend. If crowds are not your preference, I suggest skipping dinner and hitting the brunch menu. The lively atmosphere, a product of communal tables, great beer, and a stylish, medieval décor, is a sublime match for midday weekend fare.
In accordance with the brunch theme, Spitzer's menu offers an array of breakfast and lunch items. Breakfast-themed dishes include a pork-belly eggs benedict, an entree of seared pork-belly and organic poached eggs stacked atop a soft, sweet brioche roll and topped with sautéed chicory and hollandaise sauce as well as lemon ricotta pancakes, drizzled with strawberry sauce and topped with pineapple mint compote and fresh berries.
Those desiring lunch can choose dishes such as truffle macaroni and cheese, where pasta is mixed with melted parmegiano reggiano, white cheddar, and fontina cheeses and truffles, seasoned with rosemary and thyme and topped with panko bread crumbs, or a juicy braised lamb sandwich. Served on toasted country bread spread with mint aioli, the braised lamb sandwich is filled with tender chunks of lamb, artichokes, grilled scallions, carrots, and radishes.
All dishes can be washed down with Spitzer's fresh squeezed orange juice, organic, homemade bloody marys, mimosas, bellinis, or anyone of their domestic and imported selection of eighty beers.
