2011 Best Brunch, Weekday

Trina’s Starlite Lounge

The whole point of brunch is that it’s an excuse for indulgence. So why not inject a dash of naughtiness and have it on a weekday? We’re talking about industry brunch on Mondays at Starlite, where calling in sick is rewarded with a pile of biscuits and gravy, or the brunch burger (crowned with a fried egg). The crowd, mostly restaurant types shaking off the prior night’s last call, won’t bat an eye at your request for a second butter-maple bourbon with a chocolate-covered bacon slice.
