Vagabond Kitchen & Bar Launches Weekend Brunch Three Months After Reopening

It's been two months since Vagabond Restaurant & Bar ditched its menu, hired a new chef, and changed the word "restaurant" to "kitchen" in its name. With a new identity, the swank MiMo District eatery decided it was time to launch everyone's favorite meal: brunch.

With executive chef Robert Dubois at the helm of Vagabond Kitchen & Bar's improved concept, weekend brunch epitomizes tradition with a twist. The meal period, which launched the last weekend of August, blends a buffet, an à la carte menu, and bottomless mimosas.

“I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone on the brunch menu and that no one left here unsatisfied," Dubois says. "No matter what your brunch craving is, we have you covered."

For $29 per person, snag unlimited plates of brunch goodies such as deviled eggs, smoked salmon, fresh bagels and breads, and Mediterranean-style cold salads. There are warm options too, including roasted potatoes, sausage, and bacon. Pair a few buffet picks with a trip to the omelet station, where you can place orders directly with the chefs. Take advantage of the restaurant's open-kitchen concept and walk up to the kitchen bar, custom-make an order, and watch it sizzle and fry, all the while getting some face time with Vagabond's culinary team.

Though the buffet is filling, save room for a few à la carte items. Plan to share two or three dishes to get the most out of Vagabond's new menu. Be sure to ask about Dubois' specials too, which vary every weekend.

The menu features an eclectic mix of breakfast- and lunch-inspired plates. Regardless of your mood, make it a point to try the croque-monsieur ($11). Perfect for two, the sandwich features thick slices of fried toast stuffed with slices of honey-glazed ham, truffle Gouda, and béchamel.

For something more sustantial, try the steak-frites ($26), a 14-ounce sirloin and truffle fries; stracciatella ($15) topped with herb oil and basil; or cauliflower steak ($12) featuring whipped feta, chives, and nuts. 

End brunch on a sweet note.EXPAND

For dessert, choose from freshly baked goods at the buffet such as brownies and cookies, or treat yourself to something extra-sweet, like chocolate s'mores pie ($11), made in-house. Topped with a gooey and smoky marshmallow cream, the petite slice is rich in taste. It's finished with sweetened frozen ice to balance the heaviness of the chocolate.

Brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit vagabondkitchenandbar.com.
