Although none of my friends will agree with me–for lack of knowing or reasons to be obstinate, I firmly believe that Big Eyed Fish, the American Southern cuisine restaurant on Washington Ave. is wildly reminiscent of a pub in Ireland. It’s cozy with wood paneling, a friendly bar, plenty of benches for seating and with the Christmas decorations up I was just having so much de ja vu thinking I had been transported across the ocean to the Irish Isle. The bright turquoise building probably gives off a totally different vibe in the summer, but in the cooling winter months it’s definitely a cozy place to grab a drink–or in our case–brunch!
Dining there for a brunch a few weeks ago was a delightful experience. Why you ask? Because the drinks were delightfully cheap. Sangria and mimosas for $3? Don’t hate it. I’ve brunched at A LOT of places. And if you just want a glass, this is definitely one of the best deals in town! A Bloody Mary is only $5.50!
The meals were decent as well (although they totally batched the whole poaching of the egg thing for our eggs benedict–totally overcooked. Ugh) We ordered a variety of things from the fried avocado eggs benedict, to the make your own omelet, and the steak n’ eggs plate.
Next time I go, I’m totally going to order a fat carafe of grapefruit juice mimosas. I’d also like to check out their mac and cheese, outdoor patio, and killer happy hour menu!
