I’m excited to start this new feature on my blog called “Around Town. As you may (or may not know) I live in the lovely city of Fort Lauderdale. And while I have lived here for around 5 years, I rarely talk about it much. Lately I’ve often found myself going to the same mundane places to eat and hangout. But, as part of my new life goals, I want to explore this city a little bit more. And I’d like to bring y’all with me. I’m going to take the little postcard image above and put it into my sidebar of posts categories so you’ll be able to go through the archives.
And without further ado…here’s my first “Around Town” post on brunch at Foxy Brown.
For what feels like a million years, this little corner space was empty. It always seemed like the perfect location for a restaurant in the Victoria Park neighborhood, but sadly nothing came to fruition. Finally, a few months ago the Foxy Brown opened it’s doors, and after much anticipation, we went on Sunday for brunch. From the outside, the place is pretty lacking however the modern yet simplistic interior makes up for it. Inside, the cozy space has a wooden bar with wine bottles scaling the wall, and tables are scattered throughout the other end of the room. It’s a bit tight fitting, but it’s not uncomfortable. There is some outdoor seating, but I wouldn’t dare in the dead of Summer.
We started with their “Doughnut Holes with cereal milk” appetizer. The milk of the day was Cookie Crisp cereal milk. I’m guessing they take a box of cereal and let it soak the milk up. Quite a creative idea. The doughnuts tasted like little fried balls of pancake mix, I honestly could’ve eaten a million of them.
For our main course, I got the “Crab Cake Benedict” and Brett had the “Garden Frittata”.
I have never had any sort of Eggs Benedict before so I was a bit hesitant at first. But, I had a craving for crab cakes, so I went for it. And I am oh so happy that I did. The food was basically melting in my mouth. I don’t think I ever want to eat another type of egg dish unless it’s Benedict style. It was absolutely magical, a mouth party if you will.
The staff was extremely friendly, and our food came out quickly and hot. My only complaint: $3.50 for an orange juice that was served in a tiny 8oz glass with ice. We basically had two shots of orange juice. Also, no free refills on the OJ. Our orange juices ended up costing more than the meal.
On my next return I will definitely not miss out on trying the “Banana Bread Grilled Cheese”, it’s stuffed with Nutella and Ricotta!!!!
For my next “Around Town” feature, I’ll make sure to take more photos. I am really in need of a good camera.
