Brunch as a treatment for hangovers ranks right up there with that 3:00 a.m. run for Super Tacos at Jack in the Box. There’s just something about it that works. Is it the abundance of carbs? Much-needed protein? Or the medicinal miracle of a good Bloody Mary?
At Kitchen 1924, it should be noted that the Bloody Marys aren’t good. They’re absolutely fan-lick-the-bottom-of-the-glass-tastic. With a wonderfully rich homemade tomato mix and a bevy of veggies, spices and add-ons in the Bloody Mary Bar, it’s hard to remember that there’s actually food in the room.
The Hangover Brunch is a wonderful bit of gimmicky goodness that works because it’s got the goods to back up the joke.
When you walk in the door, there’s an array of sunglasses in case the wide-open, sunshiny space of Kitchen 1924 is too much for your weary past-noon eyes. They’ve even got Pepto Bismol and Excedrin handy if you need a bit more than just food and drink to cure what ails ya.
Even if you don’t imbibe, the buffet is worth the short or long drive to Lakewood. It’s fresh and innovative, especially for an unheard-of ten bucks. The smoked Gouda scrambled eggs could be sitting on the line and be enough. The biscuits and gravy? Addictive. Cornbread bites? OMG. The only miss in the whole shebang on our visit was sinfully droopy, greasy bacon. And nobody likes floppy meat.
Otherwise, everything is top-notch and worthy of our Brunch of the Month title, the only honor Hillary and Barack want more than that other thing they’re fighting for.
