Mimosa Bottle Service
Skillet No Skillet
This weekend I celebrated both Jess’s birthday and Dallas’s birthday. They both had night outings on Saturday, but Dallas’s trumped Jess’s so I was glad when Jess decided to also have a ladies brunch with manicures and pedicures to follow!
Jess, Sara, Ginny, Emily and I got together at Frog n Snail. I’d never been there before, but if you watched Top Chef in the olden days you’ll remember Dale Levitski . Frog and Snail is his place. When the waiter came to take our drink order we weren’t sure if we were doing coffee or drinks or what… When he suggested the Mimosa Bottle Service, we were all like “YES, PLEASE!!” Coffee… who were we even trying to kid?
The way the mimosa bottle service works is like this: There are four different “bubbles” you can order (cava, champagne, prosecco, etc). Then they bring a carafe of orange juice (OJ pronounced as a word phonetically, if you’re our cool waiter) as well as peach, blueberry and pumpkin mixers. Then you get to custom make your own mimosas, mixing together whatever you’d like. So fun!
For brunch Sara ordered the homemade pop tarts. I had one bite of the apple one and it tasted just like apple pie. So good. The pastry was really nice and flaky and light. A couple people had the Croque Madam sandwich, which was two-year aged white cheddar, rosemary ham, shallot, apple and a sunny egg. The waiter said it was the chef’s specailty and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. I got the dish called Skillet No Skillet. I don’t see it on the menu on the site, but it was roasted vegetables, fried green tomatoes, some lamb and fennel sausage and a poached egg. This was so good and flavorful. And not super heavy.
We loved Frog and Snail for brunch. We had so much fun visiting and making our mimosas and eating delicious food. Our party sat in the back near the kitchen and we did have a few Chef Dale sitings, which added to the excitement.
After brunch, Sara, Jess and I went to Get Nail’d. They were able to get us all in and their rates are pretty cheap, $32 for mani and pedi, I think it was. … but they were so slow! My girl was so talkative. I knew her entire life history by the time we were through.
Fun way to spend a birthday afternoon. Happy birthday, Jess!!
