Review Day Tuesday

This past Sunday, I was invited to an exclusive preview of The National Aviary's brunch series, featuring Atria's. One Sunday a month the Aviary will be holding the brunch, which is held under a tent in the Rose Garden.

The table scape was simple and beautiful, which didn't take away from the beautiful rose garden.

They also have a barista that served Cappuccinos, Mocha and Lattes.

Let me tell you, the barista knows how to make an awesome drink! We both had a caramel Cappuccino, which was just to die for!

There was also an assortment of other drinks, Mimosa's, Fruity Sangria and Bloody Mary's. Along with milk, coffee, tea and juice.

Before the brunch buffet  was served, one of the Aviary workers brought out a parrot. I can't get over that they can live up to 50+ years!!!

 The buffet that Atria's prepared was wonderful!

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, The Classic, with poached eggs and sauce hollandaise over crisp potato pancakes (This was to die for!!!)

Organic Buckwheat Pancakes

Cinnamon Roll French Toast

Roasted Vegetable Fritatta Con Queso with Salsa Verde

Silverstar Bourbon Glazed Ham Off The Bone and Grilled Breakfast Sausage. There was also a Mango Chutney on the side for the Ham

Seasonal Fresh Fruit

Bagels, Artisan Breakfast Rolls and Challah with an Assortment of Jams, Fresh Fruit Compote and Cream Cheese

Second view of the assorted pastries

There was also Maple syrup and whipped citrus butter on the side for the pancakes and french toast and you can also order organic scrambled eggs.

Of course I had to take a picture of my plate :)

The food was amazing! Chef Josef's did a fantastic job! My husband and I are still wanting more of the smoked salmon benedict!

My husband and I had a great time at the brunch we also met two wonderful ladies, Donna and Deann from The Soul Pit that sat at our table. 

I also want to thank Ericka from the Aviary for the invite to this event and Shelby from Atria's for help putting this together. Everything was wonderful!!

The first brunch of the series is on Father's Day, June 16th, which has already sold out! The next brunch will be on July 7th with and RSVP by July 5th. More information about the brunch series and how to make a reservation can be found here at the Aviary's website.

Also the price of the meal includes admission to the Aviary... Here are a few pics from our visit inside.
