SF: Bottomless Mimosa Brunch at CircaFriday, February 11, 2011
Circa is a nice choice for bottomless mimosa brunch if you're looking for a balance of good brunch food and a good time with friends. Their restaurant is separated into two sections, one's a bar/lounge and the other is a sit-down dining area. They were able to accommodate our group of 17 with a reservation, but we had to separate into two groups, one table for 12 and the other for 5. Their $9 bottomless mimosas are served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am - 3pm with a two hour serving limit.
Circa offers a Benedict Sampler for $10 that I'm quite fond of, considering I am a huge eggs benedict fan - can you tell? I've ordered a benedict in brunch reviews so far...
I had the Nova, a smoked salmon benedict served with a dill-lemon hollandaise and the Bearnaise, a grilled beef tenderloin benedict served with a tarragon-shallot hollandaise. While they have quite a choices for their sampler, I won't say this is the best benedict I've ever had. However, I enjoyed that I didn't have to completely sacrifice decent food for a Sunday Funday with friends (ahem, Lime...). Next time I would like to try the Oscar, a dungeness crab and asparagus benedict as well as the Italian which has pancetta with a roasted tomato-basil sauce.
|Lobster & White Truffle Mac-n-Cheese|
I don't recall if we were just hungry after our meal or we were just being fatties, but my friends and I decided to order their Lobster & White Truffle Mac-n-Cheese which I'm glad we did! Though the price is a bit steep at $10 for a small serving, this mac and cheese was well balanced with their chunks of lobster, hint of white truffle and the right amount of creaminess of the cheese. I would definitely order this again in a heartbeat.
