Sunday Brunch Returns To The Turtle Restaurant January 17, 2010

You may have noticed that we had posted an article about the history of Eggs Benedict and Brunch. It was because we have been anticipating the reopening of the restaurant for brunch service. For the past two months we have been training Jerome Vigil to take over lunch service so Chef Thomas may extend our service to include Sunday Brunch. We also thank the good doctors at Brownwood Specialty Group, and Dr. Strefling, for taking good care of Chef Thomas' knee so that he is back on line. Everyone has been waiting for this moment. I know I have missed Eggs Benedict with real hollandaise sauce in the worst possible way and nobody does it better than Chef Thomas Vezina.

So - if you've ever been curious about the word brunch or why we eat at the times we do or the origin of Egg Benedict, I hope I've answered those pressing questions adequately. If you've been dying for a really excellent Bennie - here's your chance to taste one. There are many variations on the classic which we will explore as time marches on. Meanwhile, try all the comfort food on this menu. Other restaurants serve chicken fried steak but The Turtle goes all out with chicken fried beef tenderloin steak and real, and I do mean real, cream gravy. We didn't list all our gelato flavors, or the new Italian Soda flavors, but we take this occasion to remind you that we have fabulous coffee drinks made with fresh roasted Anderson's Coffee beans. Sunday is a time to eat with the family and relax - take it easy at The Turtle.
