Brunch at Eleven

Long time readers of this blog know that every year for our birthdays, we use our Big Burrito Birthday coupons on brunch at either Casbah or Eleven. Since last year I chose Casbah and earlier this year we had to cancel SP's birthday brunch at Eleven due to weather, I chose Eleven for this year's birthday brunch. We started off with a Bloody Mary for SP and a Mimosa for me while we looked over the menu. Here's what we enjoyed for brunch:
I started with a blueberry muffin from the pastry basket. The basket also contained a coconut muffin, 2 biscuits, and a wonderfully light & flaky croissant, all served with honey butter and jam.
For his first course, SP chose Three Greens (radicchio, little gem, arugula, goat cheese, red wine vinaigrette, roasted sweet peppers, tapenade croutons).
I have been thinking about the Grilled Sticky ever since our last brunch at Eleven, so I couldn't resist the cinnamon swirl brioche with bacon butterscotch and icing. It's enormous and delicious.
SP's entree was Prosciutto Cotto, Caramelized Onion, & Aged-Cheddar Omelet with bacon and fingerling potatoes. The omelet was really fluffy and the bacon was some of the best bacon I've ever had (yes, I "whined" to try SP's bacon!).
I chose my usual Eleven brunch entree: Eggs Benedict (English muffin, hollandaise, truffle vinaigrette, Tasso spiced pork loin, citrus). As usual, I asked for my eggs well poached, and they were, and it was a delicious dish that I completely devoured.
I really wanted dessert because I love dessert and Eleven's desserts are always fantastic, but I was pretty darn full plus we had a few errands to run after brunch and I didn't want to feel overly full during errands, so we passed on dessert. Our server did bring me the above Happy Birthday chocolate. Once I split it in half, it was the perfect size sweet treat to end the meal. I am still kind of wishing we had ordered the Spice Cake, but... that would've been way too much food.

Service is still fantastic. The food is still delicious. It's relaxing and fancy but not stuffy. Still one of our favorites.
