The Skinny: Located on the 6th Floor at The Palm’s Place, this is is a fantastic Sunday Brunch. This is the ultimate brunch to go to after a Saturday night out on the town. The whole staff is in pajamas so even guests are welcome to dine in their pj’s. When you walk through the main entrance you see the candy bar they’ve set up with mini Chinese take out boxes for you to stuff and take home with you. The menu consists of sushi, bagel + lox, baby crab claws, shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit smoothies. Aside from the brunch buffet, they also have items that need to be ordered through the server like eggs benedicts, morning pizza, baby back ribs, and the sampler platter of desserts that takes you back to your childhood with items like Snowballs, rice krispy treats, chocolate chip cookies, homemade ding dongs, caramel popcorn and cotton candy.
The High: From the kitchen, my friends and I ordered the morning pizza, lobster havarti benedict, crab benedict, + the pulled pork benedict. The morning pizza had white chedder cheese, bacon, ham with an egg ontop. This would be my #1 pick for the ultimate hangover food. It is basically an omlette on pizza dough. The lobster havarti benny was a poached egg on top of 2 pieces of lobster brioche with melted havarti cheese in-between. The lobster toast was delicious, it tasted like grilled cheese shrimp toast with a poached egg on top. The Crab Benny had real lump crab on top of your traditional English muffin. This was your typical crab benny, I liked this one a little better then one’s I’ve eaten in the past elsewhere because the crab wasn’t dried out and fresh.
The Low: The pulled pork benny was definitely my least favorite. It had a poached egg on top of pulled pork and a cornbread base. Pulled pork should just stay on a bun instead of as a benedict. This goes to show that not everything can be made into a benny. The service was ok as well, we did sit at our tables for a while before someone acknowledged us. It was our first time dining at this brunch so we had no clue how it worked. The server also forgot to put in our steak benny so we never even got to try that which I was looking forward to.
Would you come back again? Definitely, there’s so much more on the menu I’d like to try.
