Brunch at Elan

A good neighborhood brunch spot is a thing of beauty and I finally have a couple to call my own.  The most recent addition Elan, the elegant eatery from Chef David Waltuck of famed restaurant Chanterelle.

Elan offers both an a la carte menu and prix fixe during brunch and the two course set menu is hard to beat.  To begin an order of piping hot Mushroom Truffle Croquettes.

I tried to limit myself to only one or two, knowing their dense delicious innards would ruin me for the rest of the meal but stopping is just so hard sometimes.

I could only make it about halfway through the incredible Omelet stuffed with two kinds of squash, creamy mozzarella cheese and diced tomatoes.  Next time I will have to do better.

Of course when it comes to drinks the limits are endless; the prix fixe includes unlimited Bloody Marys or Blueberry Cobbler Mimosas. I really can't think of a better way to enjoy a glorious Sunday afternoon.
