A beautiful brunch awaits at New Haven’s South Bay. Sunlight floods a space drenched in beachy blues and creams, complete with sandy-toned wood accents and exposed brick. The setting is a bit reminiscent of the Mediterranean, and so is much of the fresh, colorful food.
For brunch, you have the choice of a two-course prix fixe meal or as many a la carte bites as you can eat. If you opt for the two-course menu, start with a seasonal dish like the fresh berry parfait layered with Greek yogurt, granola, fresh berries, and vanilla cream, or the avocado toast topped with a poached egg, frisee salad, and pancetta. Then for the larger second course, dig into a stack of French toast dusted with sugar and capped with fruit or a Caprese panini stuffed with fresh tomato, prosciutto, and mozzarella. If you decide to go a la carte, start with lemongrass lamb lollipops, crispy mushroom risotto tater tors, or half a dozen oysters. Just make sure you save enough room for the lobster eggs Benedict, the crab cakes, or the seafood risotto.
