New Brunches

Posted by Patrick Alan Coleman on Tue, Mar 30, 2010 at 12:43 PM

Seems that there’s been an increase in options for the perpetually brunch starved Portlander. And while I’d like to keep them under my hat so I don’t have to stand in line for hours before wrapping my lips around a Bloody Mary and some poached eggs, I’m feeling generous today. Besides, I left my hat at home.

Accanto (2832 Southeast Belmont)

This little joint is essentially Genoas little brother. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is closer to neighborhood bar than fancy restaurant, and the brunch is only three weeks old. Try the sage biscuits and gravy. Brunch is Saturday and Sunday only and as of last weekend, tables are easy to find.

EaT! (3808 North Williams): Jazz Brunch

EaT is kicking off a regular NOLA-style jazz brunch beginning April 4th. Along with the jazz from Reggie Houston's Box of Chocolates, you’ll be able to hit the oysters, grits, turtle soup, and soft shell crab Po-Boys. Also: Hurricanes. Nothing says Sunday like a mess of sweet booze.

Tasty and Sons (3808 North Williams)

Just down the street from EaT, John Gorham of Toro Bravo fame has opened up the brand spankin’ new Tasty and Sons. Open 9 am-3 pm, Mon-Sat, the place is big on brunch options that are out of the ordinary, like chocolate-potato donuts and North African sausages. Food Dude over at Portland Food and Drink has a first impression worth the read.
