Now, on to some food....
A Sunday breakfast craving led "R" and I to Parkview Nite Club recently.
Their brunch menu has a lot of unique items, like Eggs Wellington, Steak Oscar, Krabby Crepe, and Frittatas. "R" couldn't resist the Hash Lafayette with sautéed andouille sausage, peppers, and onions with hash browns and topped with two poached eggs and a Creole mustard sauce ($8). Only complaint? The sausage was sliced cased meat again. What's with that lately? Give me crumbled sausage any day.
Several of their brunch items are topped with a champagne cream sauce, so I was drawn to picking one of those dishes to try it. I selected the Krab and Asparagus Scrambler with scrambled eggs, krabmeat and asparagus, and topped with champagne cream sauce on an English muffin ($8.50). I added cheese.
The atmosphere was casual and fun, family-friendly, and they made a good Bloody Mary. Parking was free on the street, and there is very little around there so finding a spot was no problem. It's just North of Detroit Avenue. It also looks like they have nightly specials, and live music often.
Has anyone been to their famous Reggae Brunch event that is held annually? I want to go!
Any other "dive" bars with good food that we should check out?
