I've been a huge fan of Vic's since its opening a few year ago and it's one of my go-to spots when I am craving pasta and don't want to spend a fortune. I've been for my birthday, Valentine's Day and Girl's Night Out, but last week was the first time going in for brunch, and I am excited to say that Hillary Sterling did an equally amazing job with their new Summer Brunch menu.
We sat in the cozy back room by the kitchen, which is an open white space with great natural sun light (a food bloggers dream!). To start, she brought out these beautiful Bloody Mary's - my favorite was the "Bloody Rosie". I am not the biggest Bloody Mary girl, but this one was pretty good!
Vic’s Bloody Mary: Soffritto Vodka, House Bloody, Black & Green Olive
Red Snapper: Basil Gin, House Bloody, Calabrian Chili-Salt Rim
Bloody Rosie: Por Siempre Sotol, House Bloody, Paprika Pepper Salt Rim
Here's a rundown of the food:
Lemon Scone, Rhubarb & Fennel Pollen
Sugar Snap Peas, Seeds, Bulgur, Anchovy & Chili
Crispy Sweet Onions, Dried Tomato & Parmigiano
Baked eggs, San Marzano Tomato, Ricotta & Calabrian Chilies
Borsa “little purse”, Ricotta, Hazelnut, Lemon
And for dessert....
The meal highlights were definitely the Crispy Sweet Onions, Sugar Snap Peas, Baked Eggs and Borsa Pasta. We also got a Brisket Burger & Chicken dish and both were very tasty, but didn't photograph well. Every visit to Vic's has always been consistently delicious. I always leave full without feeling disgusting since Sterling uses so many natural and fresh ingredients. This visit (and every visit) to Vic's gives me the ultimate foodgasm, so they are getting a well-deserved 10/10.
