The Place:
While there are a lot of French restaurants in town, Chicane is the closest thing you’ll get to the French Riviera without actually going there. The region is reflected in everything from the bright interior to the ”cuisine du soleil” (food of the sun). Bonus: the chairs and booths were designed to remind you of race car seats. It’s like brunching during your own Monaco Grand Prix. 
What to Eat:
Go for the La Trouchia, a South of France specialty, that includes Eggs, Swiss Chard, Tender Onion, and Parmesan. For you hollandaise lovers, a Maryland Crab Cake Benedict is also served here for your pleasure. 
What to Drink: 
Chicane will definitely serve the brunch classics, but also provides their full cocktail list too. There’s nothing I want more than to go back to summer vacation, so I’m opting for the Grace Kelly to temporarily transport me there. It’s vodka, strawberry, mint and fresh lemon. 

Reservation Policy:
Brunch reservations are accepted for parties as small as two.

The Place:
The East Pole is well worth the trip even if you don’t live in the neighborhood. Its name is a playful contrast to the North Pole, and also a nod to how they source local ingredients from Eastern New York. Inside you’ll find modern, minimalist decor, and navy colored booths set against light-colored wood. Pro Tip: if you are a group of six, try to score the big round table in the back, perfectly situated under the skylight. If you are a larger group celebrating a special occasion, the upstairs space is great for a private event like a birthday, bridal or baby shower.
What to Eat:
Go for the Dutch Apple Pancake with Bourbon Maple Syrup, and for a side order the Scotch Egg & Mustard Seed. Most places over-fry their Scotch Eggs, but The East Pole nails it. There is also a Macro Plate if you are into something uber healthy. 
What to Drink: 
The cocktails at The East Pole are excellent. A few of our favorites include: The Spiced Pear Bellini (house cinnamon infused vodka, Lillet, and ginger), the Pass The Dutch (Bols Genever, fresh lemon, egg white and a red wine float), and the Spiced Apple (house cinnamon infused vodka, Baentzen Apple and fresh lemon).

Reservation Policy:
Brunch reservations are accepted for parties as small as two.

Cheers Brunchies!
