Why? Brunch at Flour!

After a jam-packed Friday and Saturday, Matthew and I were ready to relax on Sunday. What better way to relax than enjoying a delicious brunch? We headed to Flour Restaurant for a blogger brunch preview, where we got to taste some of the best brunch menu items, from savory to sweet.

We of course started with Sunday Funday cocktails: a pomegranate mimosa for me and a “Moscow Intense” for Matthew.

Chefs Matt Mytro and Paul Minnillo joke that they are a combination of “new school” and “old school.” Well, the combination works perfectly! Flour’s brunch takes classic breakfast favorites and gives them a gourmet Italian twist.

Our first course featured the salmon pastrami with creme fraiche, argula, and crepes and truffled Parmesan tater tots with country gravy.

Matthew really enjoyed the salmon, although it was a bit too strong for me. But we were in complete agreement on the deliciousness of the truffled Parmesan tater tots: crisp on the outside, moist on the inside, and packed with rich truffle flavors.

Next up, we got to sample house-made sausage, fried chicken, and a breakfast pizza.

The sausage was spicy and not too fatty or greasy. The fried chicken was tender and juicy, served with buttermilk ranch and sriracha, which complimented each other well. The breakfast pizza featured pancetta and sunny-side-up egg. My favorite part of the pizza was the crisp crust made in Flour’s wood-fired pizza oven.

My two favorite dishes were the eggs Benedict and the Nutella-stuffed French toast.

I usually have a tough time deciding between savory or sweet at breakfast and, on Sunday, I didn’t have to choose.

The Nutella-stuffed French toast with peanut butter powder and stone fruit was sinfully decadent and would fulfill the most active breakfast sweet tooth.

Brunch is available at Flour from 11am to 2:30pm every Sunday. There’s a great variety of choices, from savory to sweet, best categorized as traditional with a twist. Kick off your next Sunday Funday at Flour…you’ll be glad you did!

***Disclosure: I was invited to attend a complimentary brunch preview at Flour with a guest. I also received a $25 gift card while at the brunch. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
