If you’re looking for breakfast during the week, the choices tend to be your reliable, but not necessarily refined, local diners. Fine for filling up, but not so much for making you feel pampered. For that, head over to the Kenwood. Nestled into a tiny commercial strip in its namesake neighborhood, the restaurant has a clubby, but not stuffy, vibe. The pared-down breakfast menu focuses on classic breakfast dishes cooked with a fine-dining sensibility, in surroundings that will make you want to sink into your leather banquette and linger over an extra cup of Dogwood coffee. The scrambled eggs are a revelation, creamy and luxurious. Pair them with a side of rosemary potatoes for a breakfast that is more than the sum of its parts. For something sweet, try the ethereally light pancakes with black walnut butter. You’ll realize you don’t need a menu with two pages of options.
