Oh hey, there you are. Where have you been? Oh wait, that’s me.
Things have been bizzay here in the Natti; but I’ve been thinking of you constantly. Really.
I especially thought of you last Sunday at brunch. In my opinion, Cincinnati lacks a boozy brunch culture. In Boston, we would toddle to one of the many haunts in my neighborhood and lounge for a few hours over eggs and bloody marys; not a bad way to spend
every a Sunday. Since moving to Cincinnati, I haven’t really found solid brunch places that have excellent food, drinks and that lounge-here-for-hours vibe. I’ve found places with great drinks or great food or a great vibe; just not all three.
Honey is not new to Cincinnati, but its new to me (still counts). I had heard wonderful things and was excited to finally try it. I corralled some girlfriends together and Sunday morning we set off to Northside.
Oh hello lover. That would be the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict (the day’s special). Fresh and chewy English muffin, topped with a gorgeous crab cake, two perfectly poached eggs, and creamy hollandaise sauce. I’m sorry, was that my scale begging for mercy? Or just me crying tears of delight? I loved this. Loved it so much I’m embarrassed to say how much because you might think I’m weird (too late?)
As if this wasn’t getting ridiculous enough, we shared an order of their signature
Binkle Fries. Binkle Fries- new red potatoes served with chive sour cream and sweet Thai chili sauce
I mean how can you NOT order something called a Binkle? Don’t answer that.
I don’t love breakfast potatoes, but these had great texture, crisp but soft, and the sweet Thai chili sauce was an awesome accompaniment.
Honey, you had me at brunch.
