|The Sunday brunch rule: Pick up a plate and try everything|
Since buffets can be an expensive endeavor for some restaurants, the order-off-the-menu brunch is becoming a more popular option. That's the format at the European-style boite that we chose as the winner of this year's Best Brunch: Brookside's cozy Cafe Europa.
But our readers apparently like off-the-menu brunches and the classic buffets in equal measure. Their numero uno vote-getter this year was First Watch, which has numerous locations throughout the metro. And the runners-up encompassed the full range of brunch possibilities: from the hip to the homey and everything in between.
The Top 10 runners-up were, in ascending order of popularity:
9) A tie: Mama's 39th Street Diner and Nick & Jake's
6) A tie: The Blue Bird Cafe and Granite City Food & Brewery
2) The Farmhouse
So, make your weekend plans accordingly.
