“Rize” and Shine for Sunday Brunch at Rize Artisan Pizza + Salads Poncey-Highland
A wake-up call of scratch-made biscuits, breads and artisan pizza dough, the sound of cracking eggs and the tantalizing aroma of sizzling fennel sausage draws sleepyheads out of bed and over to Sunday brunch at Rize Artisan Pizza + Salads in Poncey-Highland. Ease into the day sipping French press coffee, mimosas ($5 glass/$20 carafe) or handcrafted white or red sangria ($7 glass/$35 carafe). More challenging decisions involve choosing a frittata ($10) encompassing roasted vegetables or Peppadew and sausage rounded out with dressed greens and a biscuit; poached egg-topped breakfast pizzas ($10) topped with bacon, egg and cheese or carne brasata; or fried egg/kale/arugula plumped breakfast sandwiches ($6) like The Ponce, which adds fennel sausage, roasted red peppers and Asiago, or The Highland sporting roasted tomato, house-made maple bacon and onion jam. Indulge biscuit cravings with a small or large order of hot, fresh-baked biscuits served with fig butter and maple bacon jam ($3/$7). Brunch hours span 11 a.m.-2 p.m. so relax, you can still sleep in, work out, worship or tackle whatever awaits before or after “Rize”-ing. Plus, you can settle the tab from your phone using the Rize app and park for free in the 675 N. Highland parking garage.
