Hounds help with the best brunch RTP
Would like the Hounds help with brunch the weekend of the 20th. Would like to really surprise my
wonderful wife. As she has been so supportive. Any and all suggestions much appreciated.
Price and menu are all open THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!!
Rue Cler and Vin Rouge are tied in my mind - both excellent. Vin Rouge has the advantage of a lovely patio, if the weather is nice. Watts Grocery is very good too. Poole's Diner in Raleigh is also top-notch, and people say the brunch at Il Palio (jn Chapel Hill) is good, but I've never been.

No -- I've had all their egg dishes: huevos mexicanos, huevos divorciados, and huevos rancheros. It's the sauces that are stunning. Beyond those dishes, I simply can't recall.
It seems Andreas visits the farmer's market on Saturday early morning, and in prepping for the Saturday dinner meal, and advance prepping for some of the week's meals, his crew and he'll be there on Saturday morning anyway, so we get the benefit of eating the freshest local stuff.
While I love a Vin Rouge dinner, I'd always take Acme brunch over a Vin Rouge brunch. I'd get the doughnuts or apple turnover to start with. Then the deluxe eggs benedict (ham and fried green tomatoes!) or the Texas border breakfast (green chile grits, poached eggs, steak, chipotle hollandaise). Great food, great staff.
