February 16, 2010 Power Rankings

by Ryan @ MRPR on February 16, 2010

So I tried to get brunch reservations at Michael’s Genuine on Valentine’s Day but OpenTable had nothing available (assuming they were booked but maybe they were closed for brunch to prepare for Valentine’s Day dinner).  In any event, ended up at BLT Steak over at the Betsy Hotel (14th & Ocean on the beach), which I had heard from friends had a good brunch (a la carte, not buffet).  The menu is relatively small but extremely appealing (to start, I shared a basket of fresh baked croissants, danish, muffin, the best tasting scone I’ve had, etc., and then I ordered one of their sizeable popovers with spinach, ham, poached eggs, bacon).  A very successful brunch and a place worth returning to morning, noon or night.  In related news, the Morgans Restaurant is now serving up brunch on the weekend.  This place is starting to hit its stride and there’s a nice review over at All Purpose Dark that is worth checking out.
