Babies in their Sunday best bopping around to live jazz,
welcoming service, an array of Southern comfort food—it’s easy to see why
brunch at this elegant downtown eatery is a beloved tradition. Diners pay
$40.95 for an entrée plus access to a buffet piled with tender Virginia
ham, biscuits and sausage gravy, Belgian waffles with pecan-maple syrup,
myriad salads, and Creole-seasoned peel-and-eat shrimp. (Children ages 5
to 12 can graze the buffet for $21.95.) There’s a dessert table with a
chocolate fountain plus cupcakes and peach cobbler. The offerings are so
ample that many patrons take their main courses to go—don’t miss the
gravy-drenched fried chicken with collards and mashed potatoes or the
gumbo with spicy andouille sausage. Sunday 10 to 2:15.
