Since launching this venture, we’ve encountered a general confusion about the definition of brunch. Is it about the time of day or the type of food? Do you have to eat pancakes and omelettes, or do Sunday morning pizza and burgers count? What if you have a Bloody Mary with your meal? Or a beer? Is a restaurant that serves both kinds of food automatically a brunch spot? After all, isn’t the word itself just a hybrid of breakfast and lunch?
I would argue–and as Rachel said in our first post–that brunch is not just a meal, but rather an experience. In other words, it matters less what you’re eating (sweet or savory, your call) or what time you sit down (10 am or 2 pm, if you’re a late riser or massively hungover), than the people you’re with and the significance you attach to the meal. Corny, yes. But your long, lazy Saturday meal is brunch if you want it to be.
So stay tuned for our first brunch, and maybe a few recipes, coming soon!
