It's been a long time since I've had unlimited bloody marys, or as Maddy calls them, alcoholic gazpacho. Turns out the definition of "bottomless" is two drinks for me, 1.5 for Maddy and, shockingly, four for Ian. After last weekend's weather woes and the epic cleanse of Sophie's room, we earned a Saturday out on the town.
For $27 DGS Deli will give you aforementioned drink special, plus your choice of an entrée and appetizer or dessert. Maddy and I got the shakshouka, Ian got the Benedictburg (poached eggs on latkes with smoked salmon and hollandaise) and Sophie got the challah French toast. For dessert Ian and Maddy had the chocolate babka bread pudding served ala mode with salted caramel ice cream and I had the banana split with peanut butter ice cream/caramel/chocolate.
The latkes were unlike any I've had before--the potato must have been prepared with a turning slicer and the result was a patty that was uniformly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. They are now two for two in the traditionally Jewish foodstuff department for me--previously their Reuben was also the best I've ever eaten.
We split up after brunch, but not before stopping to buy a dozen doughnuts at GBD for Sophie to bring to her friend's "hot tub party." She was such a good sport about the 3+ hours spring cleaning last weekend I didn't have the heart to drag her to the Cherry Blossom Festival. You will be happy to know that the ajumma visor and the squid hat pictured below both made the "keep" pile.
