Crazy About You
As if the tranquil view and velvety decor weren’t enough here at Crazy About You, their brunch menu definitely means serious business. Fun fact: they’ve sold over 6 million serrano ham croquettes to date, but that’s neither here, nor there. Classic American fare forged with precision and sometimes slight adaptation is the repertoire here.
Take, for example, the mini burgers, but with Kobe beef. The french toast, but stuffed with Nutella. The straight-up, no-bars-held, fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs. That kind of stuff (yum). Oh, and every brunch comes with a completely free appetizer, which is nothing to shake a stick at. Make it your business to save a brunch day for Crazy About You.
