Distilled [brunch]

Had a blast with my family during our girls brunch at Distilled! We shared lots of laughs while enjoying cocktails and wine (and for one us, scotch :) ) . We also feasted on delicious food, including warm biscuits with honey butter, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, the Franklin burger, and the Complete Breakfast Sandwich (two sunny eggs, bacon, cheddar). Definitely one of the best breakfast sammies out there. So rich and satisfying. Someone spotted the cinnamon coffee cake on the menu and we tried to order it, only to learn that they had run out and were baking another batch. After about an hour, we were rewarded with the most amazing coffee cake ever. Totally worth the wait! In between, we were graciously given┬áseven tasty shots by our awesome server, Alysse. Then as we were wrapping things up, we received seven MORE shots — this time, picklebacks! Nothing like a little moonshine and pickle juice at three o’clock in the afternoon. ­čśë ┬áMy sister and I ended up taking a few for the team and believe me, we were glad to do it. Big thanks to the Distilled team (Chef Shane Lyons, Benjamin, Alysse, etc.) and an even bigger thanks to my amazing family for treating me to such a fun and boozy brunch!
