Brunch at The Union Kitchen - Memorial

My husband and I decided to try brunch at the Memorial location of Paul Miller's The Union Kitchen this morning. We arrived shortly after service began at 10:00 and were immediately seated. We ordered a bottle of the easy to find and consistently delicious Roederer Estate sparkling rosé to get our Sunday brunch started and began to peruse the menu. The bubbles were dry, smooth and fruity as expected!

We were out a bit earlier than usual so I was leaning more towards the breakfast side of brunch. I was also fairly hungry so I ordered the Ranchero omelet which came with diced char-grilled hangar steak, salsa fresca and pico de gallo along with a side of breakfast potatoes.

Our server also delivered a plate of mini-muffins with our entrees. It was actually hard to choose as several items had sounded really good, luckily, I was not disappointed with my choice. The steak was tender and the eggs were fluffy and, most importantly, not brown and it came with a generous but not overwhelming serving of potatoes. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

My husband opted for the Union bowl which came with scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, chopped bacon, green onions, bell peppers, shredded cheddar cheese and breakfast potatoes; he said he also enjoyed his selection.

He then suggested that we split the Bananas Foster French Toast for dessert as it had been difficult to choose between the sweet and savory items. This dish was composed of pan-seared custard marinated brioche bread with warm bananas foster sauce and a drizzle of maple syrup. Decadent and delicious!

A steady crowd had began to arrive and the dining room was filling up. Our first trip to The Union Kitchen was an unquestionable success, we will definitely be back. We looked over the dinner menu and decided we will try that for our next experience with this restaurant.

I can say with certainty, however, that the brunch at The Union Kitchen is recommended!
