A new restaurant specializing in brunch opened over the weekend with eggy dishes, southwestern favorites, and loaded French toast. Toasted Gastrobrunch from Sami Ladeki of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill fame, brings smoked brisket hash, shrimp and grits, eggs in purgatory served in a sourdough bread bowl, and a omelet with vegetarian leanings.
One portion of the menu highlights char-grilled toasts topped with avocado, eggs and grilled asparagus, lobster, smoked salmon, duck confit, prosciutto and fig, Nutella, or bruleed strawberries. Its cousin French toast gets stuff with berries and mascarpone, peanut butter and bacon, or cinnamon raisin and white chocolate. Stacks of pancakes come with cinnamon and walnuts, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, Southern fried chicken and hot sauce syrup, walnuts and bananas, or coconut pistachio.
Savory items start with eggs Benedicts, loaded with braised short ribs, Canadian bacon, crispy chicken and cheddar cornbread, duck confit, grilled tomato and mashed avocado, or bacon and grilled asparagus.
A roster of Mexican dishes ranges from a breakfast burrito or duck quesadilla to chilaquiles or a Santa Fe scramble.
Lighter fare and vegetarian dishes include a meatless burger, chopped chicken salad, whole gran power pancakes, and salads.
Notes on the menu highlight vegetarian, gluten-free, and spicy items.
