The Hudson launches weekday brunch; the Raymond goes for breakfast
At the Hudson, beginning at 11 a.m. daily, brunch lovers can linger over a menu of huevos rancheros; prosciutto benedict; steamed artichoke with arugula, lemon and capers; a "hangover" burger with bacon, avocado, charred jalapeno cheese sauce and a medium fried egg; fish tacos and more.
On the Eastside, the Raymond is bent on taking the late-morning stigma off weekend brunch by offering breakfast instead. The meal is served at the ungodly hour of 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. But fear not, if you like the idea of eating breakfast at 1 p.m. you still can. In fact, the menu is served up until 2:30 p.m.
Offerings include traditional omelets, eggs benedict, croissant sandwiches and pecan and banana griddle cakes with whipped honey butter and warm maple syrup.
