I SPY: Stuffing The Turkey

Nov 24, 2014

Have you started preparing for Thanksgiving?  We did a different kind of preparation.  Stretching our belly to the max in preparation for all the soon to come holiday eating!  We kicked off this weekend with a stuff ourselves silly BRUNCH at Root & Bone.  OH MY GOSH.  Proved to be natural pigs by nature!  HA.  

We had the pre-fix menu.  Was served everything on this menu.  I repeat EVERYTHING!

Worth it?  TOTALLY!  I love my Southern home cooking.  Flaky biscuits, deviled eggs soaked in beet juice, succulent fried chicken, short rib meat loaf that tasted like beef hash with poached egg were all my top faves.  Salads were tart and good to balance out your palette from all the grease.  But with so much food coming out non stop, we soon realized that we were wasting belly space eating salad!  Had to still save room for dessert.  Pecan pie and Red Velvet cake were winners.  They also make a mean Bloody Mary.  SPICY.  Only down - Buttermilk Pannacotta.  A waste of calories in my opinion!

Atmosphere is homey and cozy down in Alphabet City.  Check out the bar.  Their beer tap had antler and bone handles.  How cool is that?  If you enjoy comfort food this is the place to be to feed your soul some love.  As the sign outdoor the restaurant says - 'Stay warm, eat chicken'.  Their fried chicken is definitely a crowd pleaser, which you can smell from across the street.  You can't resist!  Will definitely be ordering that again and must try the mac & cheese, pork belly and key lime pie the next time.  See? Already finding reason to stuff the turkey again!
