Sundays also mean $5 Bloody Mary or Mimosa specials, too. “In addition to a completely re-tooled classic cocktail menu, Easter brunch offerings will pair perfectly with our new breakfast martini — cleverly concocted by our in-house mixologist Chris Bradshaw, ” said chef and owner Ethan Lappé. “It includes Tanqueray No. Ten, Cointreau, fresh lemon juice, orange marmalade, and a dash of orange bitters. When served ‘up’ with orange zest garnish…it’s delicious!”
