Saturday Brunch in Fairfield Cty

Syphrite Apr 8, 2010 03:47 PM

Does it exist? I'd love recos for some good places to get brunch, especially on Saturday's. Really like 1020 Post, but they only do Sunday. Can't really seem to find other options that aren't diners.

Kid friendly places are a plus! :)

        If memory serves, City Limits doesn't offer brunch per se, but one could nicely cobble together the equivalent off their breakfast and lunch menus. Assume you're not looking for buffett, this is strictly waiter service.

        Of course CL is a diner in name only....actually an extremely kid friendly family restaurant that does very creative riffs on standard fare. Remembering you are ISO Corn Beef Hash, they have a pretty good one topped with poached eggs and optional Hollandaise. Huevos Rancheros good. Really nice baked goods.... esp. muffins and cornbread. Crisp service.

          You've got a good memory louuuuu! I've been to City Limits a couple of times and I tried the Corn Beef Hash one time and the Huevos Rancheros the other time. It was good, but I was a little underwhelmed.

          I've been spoiled by Corn Beef Hash w/Poached Egg at Bouchon in Vegas and Kate's in SF, and I can't seem to find the equivalent around here or even in the city.

          I feel like someone could make a killing in the Fairfield County area opening a weekend spot that only served brunch!

          Thanks for the recos guys! :)

            if you are looking for killer huevos rancheros go to Rosies in New Canaan.

        The Red Barn in Westport shows a Saturday Brunch menu on their website. Not sure how it is since I've never been. Sunday buffet is excellent.

          BJ Ryans in Norwalk has eggs benedict and a couple of other egg dishes on their regular menu, and will always whip up mimosas and sunday specials!!
