Michy's, the Biscayne Boulevard restaurant helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein, wants you to eat this meal every Sunday: fried chicken and waffle sandwiches stuffed with maple syrup and gravy. Michy's also wants you to drink.
The Upper Eastside staple is launching its inaugural brunch service July 28. And if you mention Michy's Facebook page, you can score a free bloody mary or mimosa.
The decision to debut brunch came easily to Bernstein.
"We have been asked to serve brunch at Michy's for a long time," the chef says. "We always find ourselves eating brunch at home or out at our favorite restaurants, so we decided why not put our favorite dishes and cocktails together on a menu to share with everyone."
The bill of fare lists classics such as huevos rancheros with spicy tomato sauce and avocado crema ($15), croquetas stuffed with jamón serrano ($12), and house-made granola with Greek yogurt and fruit ($12).
Michy's also gets creative. The restaurant offers a slider "Benedict" -- poached quail egg, hollandaise, and serrano on a potato roll ($18) -- as well as squash blossoms with shrimp mousse and cheese grits ($17).
Feeling boozy? Choose from cocktails such as the bloody mary ($10), Morning Glory Fizz ($12) -- blended Scotch, absinthe, lemon juice, egg white -- and soursop bellini with soursop purée and prosecco ($12).
Fried chicken and waffle sandwiches and boozy soursop?
Michy's brunch service begins Sunday, July 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
