Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting 36th St Bistro for brunch. I have never been for brunch only for lunch and dinner. This place really is a unique dining experience. It is attached to a garden center which is just beautiful! You really feel like you are eating in a sort of greenhouse. Lunch and dinner have been great when I have been there before.
My number one brunch companion and I had excellent service this last Sunday and a fabulous meal. They serve brunch on Sundays from 9-3. Their menus (for brunch, lunch and dinner) change seasonally seeing as how they have an emphasis on local ingredients. The fairly small brunch menu ranges in price from 6-10 dollars. I had the eggs benedict. The perfectly poached eggs paired delightfully with the dill hollandaise and I really liked the inclusion of tomatoes in this rendition of a classic. PLUS you actually get a choice of ham or bacon on your english muffin. My friend had the vegetarian fritatta which arrived at our table looking all cute and tiny - just right for one person. Presentation was nice, food was hot, service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. We did finish off our meal with a chocolate blueberry mousse - which I failed to take a picture of. Like a bite of heaven in a glass - that's all you need to know. Just order it!

The 36th Street Garden Center and Bistro is well worth the visit for any meal. There are tons of activities going on there year round. Check out their website at www.36streetgardencenter.com
