Brunch at Avenue Eat & Drink

We've been to Avenue several times (and blogged about our first visit here) but until Saturday, I had not been to their Saturday Brunch before.

Not many Tallahassee restaurants offer brunch on Saturday, it's mostly a Sunday thing, except at places that specialize in breakfast to begin with. So having this option for a Saturday is great!

Everything BUT the Kitchen Sink plus a Jumbo Brown Gulf Shrimp Cocktail
This was wonderful as it was served with a ton of veggies including a cucumber slice, a homemade spicy dill pickle, a pimento-stuffed olive, a super spicy pepperoncini and a stalk of celery.

 Bill's pancakes and bacon
Sweetened crème and candied walnuts and served with Applewood smoked bacon

 John's BLT with sweet potato chips
[Fresh Bibb lettuce, sliced tomato, smoked bacon and avocado on Ciabatta bread with basil mayo]

Jessica's Pound Cake French Toast
Topped with seasonal fruit compote and served with Applewood smoked bacon

I had an omelet with sausage, caramelized onions, white cheddar and tomato. It came with potatoes and was delish. How did I miss taking its photo? [Don't answer that!]

We still love the mission of Avenue and hope Tallahassee does too: 
To create a loyal customer base interested in the finest food and beverage experience in an unpretentious but elegant environment. To change moments into memories through our unique and cutting edge approach to eating and drinking. To have the best service, servers and culinary team that will allow Avenue Eat and Drink to distance itself from the average and uninspired. To expand our horizons by pursuing our passion for the pairing and service of fine foods and beverages. Avenue Eat and Drink features a Southern Fusion menu with influences from FL, SC, LA and GA. Our goal is to source locally and create a menu that is primarily organic and green.
