Best Sunday Brunch Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2008 - Rosie's Bar & Grill
2449 Wilton Drive
Wilton Manors, FL 33305
Rosie?s is just a nice place to be. Their lanai is big and cool and blessed with a funky Hawaii-lite aesthetic that somehow demands a mimosa (which they serve in ?French,? ?Italian,? and ?Grand? varieties, the last involving Grand Marnier). And at brunch-time ? unlike, say, any other moment of the week ? Rosie?s is quiet enough that you can actually hear your tablemates. Not that you?ll want to. Rosie?s brunch menu is filled with things that are a lot more appealing than a hung-over attempt at conversation. Like ?Miss Truny?s Deep-Dish Southern Style Not-So-French Toast,? baked with a pecan-praline glaze, or ?The Nelly Frittata,? an egg-white frittata with sausage, chicken, bacon, spanish onions, and red and green peppers. This is actually more delicious than it sounds, even when your stomach is doing loop-de-loops in flight from last night?s excesses. Heavy fare like this has a wonderful stabilizing effect. But there?s light stuff, too ? fried green tomatoes with avocado, a delicious Greek omelet called ?The Un-Teeny Santorini,? and a Belgian waffle topped with bananas, pineapple, mango, blueberries, and whipped cream that goes down like a confection and may even be healthy.
