Brunch in the Hood



New local blog The Real Fort Greene has an interesting rundown on brunch options in the 'nabe. They tag Olea as their favorite, and as you all know by now, I'd certainly agree.

Olea

Probably my current favorite. Part of the Moe’s, Maggie Brown, Pequena restaurant empire and one of the few spots that serves brunch every day. The menu has all the brunch standards with a Mediterranean touch. My usual order: Green Eggs & Lamb (scrambled with fresh cilantro, tomato and red onion, served with merguez lamb sausage and pita) or the steak and eggs or an omelet. Great mimosas.


I actually didn't care too much for the Green Eggs & Lamb, but that's really my problem, as I'm not a fan of lamb chorizo in general. We here at Clinton Hill Foodie recommend the Savory French Toast. Also, check out the bloody marys. They're among the best I've had.
