Best Brunch

Midtown Yacht Club

15 E. Centre St., (410) 837-1300

Posted 9/21/2005

The Midtown Yacht Club’s brunch buffet is glistening with piles of meat: Cajun pit beef, roasted leg of lamb, fresh county ham in pineapple-cherry sauce, spicy Italian sausage, slabs of Hatfield country bacon, and creamy sausage gravy over homemade biscuits. All top of the line, serious carnivore’s meat, and all of it, just sitting there, waiting for you to spear it onto your plate. Midtown puts out eggs, waffles, and potatoes, too, but consider them the glue to hold all of that restorative flesh together. Sunday morning at this ever-so-humble, exceptionally well-tended Mount Vernon institution, which by night draws one of the neighborhood’s more diverse and lively crowds, is family friendly and agreeably soothing — no peanuts on the floor, linens on the table. Coffee comes in individual French presses, and additional brunch items like French toast, steak and eggs, and Benedicts are available à la carte. It’s a cold-weather brunch, though, made for days when your only further plans involve sitting. See you in October.
