Whether you're battling a hangover or simply cruising through a lazy morning off work, there's no doubt Sunday brunch is king of all the weekend feeds. And when the kitchen team from Hartsyard is on the pans, you're in professional brunch hands.
While the Enmore eatery has long been a favourite for after-dark eats, Hartsyard chefs Niki Waples and Gregory Llewellyn are now flexing their brunch muscles as well, plating up an AM-friendly version of their much-loved, refined American fare.
For the occasion, the duo designed a menu with 'lazy Sunday session' written all over it, starring treats like lump crab on steamed buns, hoecakes teamed with salmon roe and crème fraiche, and of course, that famous fried chicken. We're even being promised a brunch-style riff on the beloved Hartsyard poutine, featuring a hangover-worthy combo of fried egg, hot chips, and a beer and cheese sauce.
To match, there will be American-style, bottomless filter coffee, though you might fancy turning your brunch into a boozy one, with the help of a few Mimosas, Bellinis, or Bloody Marys. Kick-ons involve $2 oysters and crafty cocktails from 4pm at sister bar, The Gretz.
To attend the brunch, all you need to do is book a table, or rock up and hope for the best.
