Before you reach for the Advil and H2O on Sunday morning, consider this for your hangover cure: bottomless mimosas, a build-your-own bloody mary bar and a menu that boasts chicken & waffles and coconut milk French toast. Brought to life by the staff of The Corner Office, Disco Brunch is spinnin’ Funkytown tunes and serving up outside-the-box eats every Sunday from 7am-3pm.
I usually think of Sunday as rather ominous. It’s the day of the week when it’s time to recoup from boozing while dreading the week ahead. But TCO welcomes you to continue your partying until mid-Sunday afternoon. The staff is disco clad from ‘fro to go-go boots (and guests are welcome to dress up, too). The DJ spins disco classics like “You Sexy Thing” and “Stayin’ Alive” while a projector screen display takes you way back to the ’70s with a loop of Soul Train re-runs.
Kick off your brunch by building your own blood mary. Your server provides the vodka and it’s up to you to add the mix and extra hot sauce, garnish with olives and celery or a splash of PBR. They’re bottomless for $15 or score bottomless mimosas for $10 if you’re craving something sweet.
First course options to share with the table include “You Sexy Thing” – a gooey Nutella and strawberry sandwich served on Brioche – and “Disco Biscuits” served with chestnut honey and preserves.
The menu stays true to brunch basics like eggs benedict and a Denver omelet for the less daring customer. The more “far out” food items include Southern style chicken and waffles, curried acorn squash crepes, and Israeli shakshuka. The dish that I felt was most interesting (and delicious) were the dy-no-mite dogs –classic NYC Sabrett hot dogs, served with Japanese mayo and mustard, nori, sweet soy, tsukemono (Japanese pickles) and pork fu. Never heard of pork fu? Me neither. It turns out that its pork that’s been stewed until it easily falls apart with the pierce of a fork and then it’s dried, mashed and beaten until it forms a coarse cotton-like texture. On paper, this sounds crazy — lots of foreign ingredients on top of an American staple. But the saltiness of the dog plus the dried pork is cut nicely by the sweet Japanese toppings and makes this dish “outta sight”.
If you aren’t full up to your esophagus yet, the Flip Side French Toast battered with coconut milk and served with sweet Nutella and avocado ice cream (made in house) is a great dessert-like finish to this groovy brunch.
