Sunday brunch...quite possibly my two favorite words in the English language. Besides the obvious (bottomless mimosas and biscuits and gravy), I love brunch because it's so much more than just a meal, it's a state of mind. Roll out of bed, call your besties, share a meal and stuff yourself silly, then immediately head home to take a nap. That's my formula for a successful brunch. I tend to opt for the laid back brunch vibe, nothing fancy for me on a Sunday morning. And you'll always find me in my brunch uniform; the t-shirt I slept in the night before, ripped up denim (or maybe a dress that's easy as pie to throw on), shades, and red lipstick. Every time. I swear I'm not trying to establish a signature look here. It's just that red lips and sunglasses compliment sleepiness/a slight hangover so well!
I have a few favorite spots around the city where I know the wait is short and the food is ah-mazing. The Winchester is hands down my favorite! The decor is light and airy and has a very modern minimalist farm house coolness to it (Herron Clothier made the tapestries hanging in the dining room and bar and every time I'm there I try to figure a way to smuggle one out in my bag). I can't decide if the avocado toast or the egg sandwich is better, but that's neither here nor there because all you need to know is... get. the. waffles! Omg, those waffles.
