Finding yourself in the Sunday brunch "where do we go?" situation with a big group of people is always kind of a logistical nightmare. One person is off gluten, another person requires a full bar, someone else is in the mood for Asian...where can you tick all the boxes off the list and know every dish you order is going to be equally good?
We were delighted to find that the chefs at ESBK are as skilled at flipping flapjacks as they are with a sushi mat. Sweet-and-salty fans will love the caramel and candied bacon French toast, but at the East meets West themed weekend brunch the must-order item is the banana cream pie version.
