This Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit Vinoy Renaissance St Pete and check out the brunch at Marchand's Bar & Grill. Marchand's recently took their award winning brunch buffet and turned it into an amazing menu, where you can order A Lá Carte or pick 3 items For $32 (two entrees and one dessert). Amazing food, live music and a perfect atmosphere, you cannot ask for more - Marchand's is a must visit for brunch in the bay area.
Marchand's offers a 'Build your perfect' Bloody Mary bar for $9, a bottomless mimosa bar for $7 or a bottomless bellini bar for $8. The bloody mary bar was unlike any I have ever seen, offering homemade spicy and regular mixers and a topping bar that would make any southern girl squeal: Pickled Green Beans, Pickled asparagus, Pickled Okra, Onion, Salami, Giardiniera, Green Tomato, Horseradish, Goat Cheese Stuffed Olives, Feta Stuffed Peppadew, House cured Beef Jerky, Shrimp, Peppered Smoked Bacon, Provolone, Mozzarella, Assorted Spices & Hot Sauce. WOW.
Starting off with my favorite dish of the day, the EGGS IN A JAR - Anson Mills Lil Moo Cheese Grits, Poached Eggs
Corn Meal Fried Rock Shrimp, Roasted Chili Hollandaise. Every bite of this dish was perfect. Since it was served in a jar, you were able to get the right amount of egg, yolk, shrimp, grits and cheese.
Womens Half Marathon Series in St. Pete on November 24. That will be my special treat for running one full marathon and two half marathons during the month of Nov!
