After spending the last couple weekends mostly puttering around the house, I was ready to go out for a bit this weekend and, most importantly, get my brunch on. My friend Jenn and I decided to try somewhere new, and we found our selves downtown at the Southern Public House.
I was a little apprehensive going in; both Jenn and I have dietary restrictions, and occasionally when we brunch together, the serving staff or the kitchen get upset if we request modifications. I had nothing to worry about though because the server and the kitchen staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. They even ran over to their sister shop next door to pilfer some tea bags when we asked if they had hot tea!
I had the Southern Benedict (with the bacon on the side), and Jenn got the Corned Beef Hash and Eggs. I traded her my icky meaty bacon for her deliciously gluten-y biscuit (she is gluten intolerant) so things worked out quite well. I really enjoyed the food, the eggs were perfect, the fried green tomatoes were crispy and tart, and the biscuit…..oh, my goodness, the biscuit! I was stuffed, but I would have eaten another 1 or 20 if I had the chance. Jenn was a little less in love with her food (it wasn’t quite what she’d been looking for), but she said she’d absolutely be coming back to try something else.
Depending on how our weekend ends up going, I am thinking about taking Andy to Sunday brunch. I think he’ll really enjoy it 🙂
