Sunday Brunch

by Cate on March 7, 2005

Went down to Hoboken today for Sunday Brunch with my sister and brother-in-law. We went to the Madison Bar and Grill in Hoboken .

Decorated in 1940s style, this restaurant would be as much at home in Manhattan as it is just across the river. Soft lighting and bare wood floors throughout, it is a warm, yet bright and lively atmosphere. Brunch costs $20 for adults and $10 for children. They had a good array of food available. Included were Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine, Spinach and Cheddar Mini Quiches, Smoked Salmon, an assortment of bagels and spreads, fresh fruit mix, Berry Tart, Sausages, Bacon, Creme Brulee French Toast, Peel-and-Eat Shrimp, Raw Oysters, Grilled Hangar Steak, Roasted Potatoes … hmm, I think that’s it. Your drink (choice of Mimosa, Bloody Mary, juice or soft drink) is also included.

The Creme Brulee didn’t look like anything special, but I’m glad I tried it. So very flavorful, and topped with a wonderful maple syrup, it was clearly one of the standouts of the brunch offerings. Also absolutely excellent was the grilled hangar steak. So very tender, with a great non-overpowering sauce, it was delicious. They had some musicians playing jazz (10:00am-3:00 pm), which our two-year-old son was definitely enthralled by. He was disappointed when he caught them on a break halfway through our meal. :) All in all, a great meal, reasonably priced, with attentive wait staff. What more could you ask for on a lazy Sunday afternoon?
