New Brunch Dishes at August and Red Rooster

By mahir | June 10, 2011

One of the best parts of any weekend is often brunch. Maybe because you can only have this meal on the weekends, brunch is made for lazy, friend-centric Saturday and Sunday mornings. It’s also a great time to try out new restaurants. Often, a restaurant’s brunch menu offers a way to try out their cuisine without spending a lot of money.

If you’re in New York City this weekend, check out August in the West Village for a delicious Croque Madame Italien, as featured in Time Out New York’s roundup of 23 new brunch dishes. You can’t go wrong with this hearty breakfast, which sandwiches salty cured coppa and Taleggio, a pungent semi-soft cheese from Italy, between two slices of country bread. The sandwich gets it’s feminine name from the signature egg on top, which transforms the sandwich from a Croque Monsieur into a Croque Madame. Don’t worry about the richness, either, this satisfying meal comes with a salad of piquant arugula.

If you’d rather something uptown, try the two new Red Rooster dishes included in TONY’s roundup: Creole Red Grits with Grilled Shrimp and Crab or Lamb and Sweet Potato Hash.

If you’re not in NYC, you can create some of these dishes at home! Check out the recipe for the Lamb and Sweet Potato Hash for a fun weekend recipe, or use up some leftover bread with a Croque Madame-style Chorizo Breakfast Sandwich Recipe.
