Have Your Sleep and Eat Brunch, Too -- Cotton Calf Kitchen Now Opens for Sunday Brunch
The sidewalk doesn’t roll up for the weekend on Saturday nights in historic downtown Braselton. On the contrary, it leads right into Cotton Calf Kitchen where the new Sunday brunch rules the menu from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Chef Javier Viera, well versed in the art of brunching, fills his menu with pleasers for all tastes. Jump on classics such as jumbo lump crab cakes Benedict with grilled asparagus or strawberry-stuffed French toast. Greet the day with Southern favorites like buttermilk biscuits and gravy, pan-roasted shrimp and yellow stone-ground grits or Southern fried chicken and biscuits, all served with tomato basil gravy and Applewood smoked bacon. Cut into a braised chicken burrito with scrambled eggs, cheddar and pico de gallo for a bit of Southwestern heat. Heading for the links at nearby Château Élan? Drive hunger pangs out of range with Cotton Calf’s center-cut sirloin steak and eggs, “Country Boy” breakfast or sunrise burger of Schweid & Sons ground short rib, Gorgonzola, Applewood smoked bacon, a fried egg, lettuce and tomato on a brioche bun sided by breakfast potatoes. Roasted red peppers, wild mushrooms, spinach and caramelized onions pile into the garden omelette. And there’s plenty more on the brunch menu ($12-$24). What’s the hurry? Relax with a craft beer, classic cocktail or a choice wine from the extensive selection. Who knows, you might want to stay on for dinner; service begins at 4 p.m.
