People often ask me for brunch recommendations, particularly this time of year. I'm going to have a suggestion whenever I can on Saturdays, so check back here next week. (But if I can't come up with a good one, I'll write about something else.)
Anyway, one I forget about is Abacrombie near the Meyerhoff. ...
Not all my recommendations are going to be as expensive as this one, but this time of year there are a lot of special occasions. This would be a place to celebrate a graduation, anniversary or wedding.
Chef Michael Putnam told me (over the phone, of course) that the most requested dish is the truffled grits, even though it's just a side. One signature dish is the eggs Benedict made with a twist, like smoked salmon instead of Canadian bacon.
The menu is a la carte, but there's also a chef's tasting menu for $29. As well as mimosas and bloody marys, of course.
Too bad there's not a beautiful little garden patio for this good food, but the rooms are pretty and light-filled -- even the basement dining room.
Brunch is served from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays only, and reservations are a good idea.
