Brunch Near Red Bank-No Brunches at Molly Pitcher

emilyb27 Jul 16, 2008 04:05 PM

My father is trying to take some of his old friends who are in town for my wedding out to a nice brunch, but to our avail, the Molly Pitcher is not doing the buffet brunches till October.

We then tried the Salt Creeke Grille but that appears not to be open, does anyone know about this?

Can someone recommend a restaurant that serves brunch that is a nice restaurant in the mid to expensive price range near Red Bank.

    2Senza offers a Sunday brunch in your price range.

      You could do a small private party at Bienvenue in Red Bank. I just did a wine dinner there which was amazing, summer truffle risotto, escargot, outrageous duck. Compliment that with some wines that you bring and it sounds like a great day to me.

        The Mill at Spring Lake Heights or Klein's in Belmar.

        The Mill is probably closest to what you would have experienced at Molly Pitcher.

        Hi emilyb27, this is a bit out of your way but I think Mcloone's in Sea Bright puts together a nice brunch on Sundays. My parents love it. I love the view (I'm vegan so there's nothing there I could recommend). You could also try WindandSea in the Highlands. The view of the bay is lovely but I think it's definitely more casual than Mcloone's.

          As much as I try to avoid Mcloone's the rest of the year, this may be a good suggestion. My father is weighing ambiance and view over quality. Molly Pitcher get both right, but I think Mcloones will be good for view that he is looking for.

            LOL, I hear you. It's definitely overcrowded. Well, while I hope the dolphins that were swimming around Mcloone's a couple of weeks ago made it out safely, someone just told me they are still around so maybe they will add to the ambiance!

              While I would never recommend McLoone's, ever, it happens to be a fairly benign brunch place, especially after the summer crowds have gone away. They do a good job upstairs, too, for private parties--that food is pretty good. And there is the view, although I hope the dolphins will be long-gone by October.

            There is a new restaurant called CJ Montanas on Shrewbury Ave, which is right on the border of Red Bank and Tinton Falls. They have been advertising brunch pretty heavily, but I can't give you an opinion regarding the food as I haven't tried it yet. Here is their website. http://www.cjmontanas.com/
