The Belmont

brunch - restaurant - salads

It’s been forever since I’ve seen my Melanie! Finally caught up with her (and Adam) this afternoon.

The Belmont has gotten a facelift + updated menus, co-created by Chefs Shad Davis and Shanna Milazo (executed by the latter). We were invited in by their new management team to try brunch, smack dab in the middle of football madness…

…it’s much quieter outside on the patio, but the temps were a little too high today.

There’s a build-your-own Bloody Mary Bar…

…which we all skipped over for food. Melanie ordered the Breakfast Naan (egg/bacon/marinara/avocado/gruyere) and Adam got the Sriracha Wings with Coconut Ranch (off their Special Game Day Menu)…

…plus a Naanstrami – pastrami with swiss cheese + spicy chipotle slaw, wrapped in naan bread.

I’ve been O.D.ing on food lately; I ate this big bowl of Shaved Brussels Sprouts…

…served with radish, almonds, parmesan, and cider vinaigrette.

Left the bacon off so Abe could share, and stole a few breakfast potatoes from his vegan tacos…

…eggs, avocado, soyrizo, cheddar, salsa, and spicy aioli.

Also enjoyed half of a grilled artichoke…

…and several handfuls of Kennebec Parmesan Fries.

Really tasty stuff! The Belmont will continue to evolve over the next few months; I’d be curious to check out their sidecar for a private event, and see what it looks like when there’s not a game on…

…actually, they have karaoke tonight!!!
