Liberty Tavern: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

If buffets call to mind rubbery eggs and flabby bacon, the one at this dining room will cast all-you-can-eat spreads in a new light. While girls in Lilly Pulitzer pile their plates with
watermelon-and-heirloom-tomato salad and shrimp cocktail, a more bleary-eyed crowd grazes on cheese-loaded grits and biscuits with country ham. Most of it stays in remarkably good shape, and if you have a hearty appetite, the $20 price is a deal. Drinks, such as a terrific Bloody Mary (with a shot of Brooklyn Lager) and a pint-size mimosa spiked with Triple Sec, aren’t included. On the à la carte menu, the fried haddock sandwich with pickles and hot peppers is the highlight. Saturday and Sunday 9:30 to 2.
