If you were ever an avid attendee ofSweat Records' vegan Sunday brunches
, you'll be stoked to know they're coming back. But this time, the meatless spread is headed toGramps
This Sunday, Francesca Lacuesta (formerly of Mac'N food truck fame) will be cooking up her ever-popular Southern fried tofu, "cheezy" grits and waffles for hungover herbivores.
The brunch had been MIA for awhile, but Lacuesta is bringing it back due to popular demand.
"I've been getting a lot of people asking me about it," she says. Lacuesta's newest edible endeavor is dubbed the Gilded Leaf. In addition to the brunch, she'll soon be hosting a series of exclusive supper clubs.
This Sunday's $15 all-you-can-eat menu includes her famous Southern fried tofu. "It's my play on chicken," she says. "I used to have this Southern fried sammie at Mac'N, it was a bestseller. It's a play on fried chicken and it's really tasty."
There'll also be waffles made with vegan buttermilk, cinnamon and agave, with a spicy maple syrup; cheezy grits, an apple, pecan and greens salad with tangy vinaigrette and a fresh local fruit and herb salad.
And it's Gramps, so alcohol is an option.
"This time it's better because there's booze," Lacuesta adds. Gramps will be serving up bottomless mimosas for $20, plus half-off bloodies and half-off frozen Arnold Palmers and dark 'n' stormies. Panther Coffee is right around the corner, too, for those in need of a caffeine fix.

There'll also be a DJ spinning soul tunes, and kids and dogs are totally welcome. Lacuesta also assures us there'll be plenty of seating -- which sometimes presented a problem at Sweat. Sunday funday, for real.
The brunch kicks off at 12 p.m. at Gramps this Sunday, February 16. It's $15 per person, alcohol is extra.
