Granite City’s Lawless Brunch lives up to its name—you set the ‘rules’ with their Creation Stations! And this month, my Luxury Downtown Detroit Loft’s Resident Event is treating me to having a go at it with my Neighbors and Friends!
I’m already dreaming up the damage I’m going to do at their Donut Creation Station, where you can design the “donut of your dreams. Start with a warm raised donut fresh from our ovens. Pile on your toppings…everything from sprinkles and coconut to your favorite cereals and bacon. Your donut wish is our command. Go wild!”
They also get it Eggs-actly right with their Egg Creation Station, where you can build a Breakfast Sandwich, an Omelet, or a Benedict with your favorite meats, veggies, cheeses, and sauces! When you hit this, I definitely recommend going all Bonnie and Clyde by pairing this with their Homemade Biscuits and Gravy!
And you can’t go wrong with their Rumchata French Toast, with thick slices of Vanilla- and Cinnamon-Swirl Bread soaked in RumChata Custard and served with Real Maple Syrup and Strawberry Compote. And, if this is wrong, wrong never felt so right. Or tasted so good….
And, pardon my French, but Oh Jus!, don’t get me started on their Carving Table, with Slow-Roasted Prime Rib “sliced just the way you want it”…. ! I’ll pair this with their Mashed Potatoes, Hearty Spuds with Prime Rib Gravy and Au Jus. And I’ll pair those with their up to scratch and made-from-scratch Mac and Cheese, which I can customize with my favorite ingredients from the Egg Station!
Their Bloody Mary Experience also lets me pick my own Vodka from their Special House-Infused Vodkas—including Habanero and Chipotle & Maple. But for me there is only one Sheriff in Town fit for my Prime Rib: their Horseradish House-Infused Vodka.
And while this is a Lawless Brunch, Granite City makes the charge ‘stick’ with their selection of garnishes: The Farmer’s Market, with Pickle, Celery, Lemon, Lime, Olive, Asparagus; The Carnivore, with Bacon, Beef Stick, Pepperoni, and a Chicken Wing; The Signature, with Jumbo Shrimp, Cheese, and a selection of classic Bloody Mary garnishes; and The Brewmaster, with a Double Beer Chaser, Maple Pepper Bacon, Jalapeño Pepper, and Cheese.
Yes. You read that right. A Beer Chaser. Actually, a Double Beer Chaser. Because while at Granite City’s Lawless Brunch you might fight the law and actually win. There will still be a chaser. A very delicious Draft Chaser of either their Northern Lager, Duke IPA, Bennie Bock, or Broad Axe Stout.
Alright, while when the axe falls, that is not usually a good thing, but at the Lawless Brunch there’s also a wide selection of Seasonal Fruit (along with Pastries, Croissants, and Scones) for you so you can plead extenuating circumstances. Though I will probably get the majority of my Vit-C for the week from their Infinite Mimosa, with your choice of Wycliff Brut or Wycliff Brut Rosé Champagne and Orange, Cranberry, or Pineapple Juice.
And I know I’ve said it before, but Oh Juice! Being Bad has never felt so good (or tasted so great) as it does at Granite City (and their Lawless Brunch). #BreakingTheLawBreakingTheLaw
So while my Downtown Detroit Luxury Loft will be treating me to this Sunday Funday in The D, everyone can get in on Granite City’s Lawless Brunch, “where whatever you say goes”!
