Going to Brunch? Try These American Staples

brunch places

The word 'brunch' was first printed in the U.S by a column published by the New Oxford, an old Pennsylvania newspaper, in 1896. Since then, it has evolved to include a very wide range of food and beverage options, many of which originate from different countries. American brunch, for example, includes a variety of staples of both breakfast and lunch options, creating the picture perfect, all-encompassing meal. With that in mind, make sure to give these tasty and traditional treats a try at your next brunch outing.

Biscuits and Gravy

First, biscuits and gravy is an American classic, particularly in the south. It's a dish that consists of soft biscuits smothered in a special type of rich breakfast gravy, usually made with sausage. While you'll find several tasty versions of this dish in diners and brunch places all over the United States, try to find a restaurant with a brunch menu that includes multiple versions of this classic to try them all at once.

Scrambled Eggs

You won't find any brunch places in Miami that don't have some version of scrambled eggs on their menu. Scrambled eggs are one of the most delicious and versatile brunch options, and they're eaten as a side to countless other breakfast staples. Scrambled eggs make a great base for a number of different ingredients, like meats, cheeses, and vegetables.

Alcoholic drinks

About 20% of Americans visit full-service dining establishments at least once a week, and anyone who has ever been to a brunch gathering has likely seen various cocktails on the menu. The fact is, no brunch is complete without enjoying a Mimosa or Bloody Mary with your meal. A Mimosa is made from orange juice and champagne, while a Bloody Mary is a savory drink made from tomato juice. A Bloody Mary often comes with bite-sized foods on the top, like bacon or olives.

In 1970, there were $42.8 billion food and beverage sales made in the U.S. restaurant industry. In 2016, food and beverage sales had increased to $766 billion. While these are just a few of the many options brunch places offer hungry customers, you'll find no shortage of options at our restaurants either.
