Brunch… Who Doesn’t Love Brunch?

“While common in the United States, according to Punch magazine, the term was introduced in Britain around 1896 by Hunter’s Weekly, then becoming student slang. A possible origin of having Sunday brunch in Victorian England came from giving the servants Sunday as there day off. The servants then early Sunday morning would set out a buffet of cold items that would be self serve for the rest of the house.” (Definition from Wikipedia)

There aren’t that many places around here that host a Sunday Brunch quite like The GC’s. When you first sit down you choose your Entree from the Brunch Menu then the adventure begins! We have our Ice Bar set up with Shrimp Cocktail, freshly shucked Little Neck Clams and Oysters, and either fresh Sushi or Smoked Salmon with Traditional Accompaniments. In our Library Bar we have fresh Bagels, Croissants, and Mini Muffins; Yogurt and Homemade Granola; fresh Salad with Dressings; Tomatoes & Mozzarella with Basil; Pasta Salads; Grain Salads; and Homemade Marinated Olives. In our Grille Room we set up our Carving Station with usually Roasted Turkey Breast and Roast Beef; and a Pasta selection; plus Bacon & Sausage and Roasted Potatoes & Vegetables. There is so much food you won’t know what to do with yourself… and the best part is that it’s all you can eat!

The Dessert is served in a buffet style as well. We always have a hot dessert (usually a Seasonal Fruit Crumble) along with Cookies, Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, and Mini Creme Brulee. It changes every week but is always delicious!

Brunch is perfect for a little get together or even a small party – Bridal Shower… Baby Shower… Christening… the list goes on and on!

Soon we’ll be putting up a Contest for Brunch for 2 so be sure to check back soon! I will be posting pics of our Brunch next week.

    We had the brunch today for the first time. All we can say is WOW. The entrees were outstanding, we chose the classic eggs benedict (done to sheer perfection) and the pork schnitzel (outstanding). Everything about the brunch was pure delight – beautifully presented and everything we ate was superb. We appreciated that all the food was the highest quality, and ususual – not the run of the mill brunch fare. The peach crumble was delightful, but my favorite dessert was the mini choccolate tarts – chocolate tart shell and ganache filling. I saved that little gem for last, and wished I had taken a whole plate full of them!

    The staff treated us so well personable, caring and yet not intrusive. The Grand Colonial is the finest restaurant we’ve visited. We used to enjoy going to the Manor, but The Grand Colonial is now our restaurant of choice.
