The Thanksgiving holiday is a time to be with family, maybe see some old friends, reflect back on the past year and of course eat. Well, with the latter in mind, I decided to give the new Sunday brunch at Mattison’s Forty One a try. It’s not like I hadn’t eaten my fair share over the past few days, but a good Sunday brunch is hard to pass up and as it turned out a nice way to end four days of seemingly non stop eating.
Mattison’s puts together a well thought out selection of breakfast and lunch items. Mini bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon is always a great way for me to start off a brunch buffet and Sunday was no exception. One table carried a selection of cheese and a variety of green salads to choose from. The hot entrees included a nice Maple Wood Farms duck dish, orange roughy,and eggs benedict. The carving station which was positioned at the end of the hot food table had a boneless leg of lamb with mint jelly and au jus.
Of course, no respectable brunch would be complete without an omelet station and Mattison’s has a good one. They offer plenty of ingredients to choose from so you can create whatever egg delicacy your heart desires. In addition to omelets, they were also were making very tasty dessert crepes at the station, a nice way to finish the meal.
The atmosphere at the restaurant is elegant without being uncomfortably formal. The service was in keeping with what you would expect from any of Paul Mattison’s restaurants, excellent. You were able to relax and enjoy your meal without feeling rushed.
The cost per person is $21.95 which is a great for all that you get. If you are celebrating a special occasion or just want a weekend treat for yourself, the Sunday brunch at Mattison’s Forty One would be a fantastic choice.
