Gingersnap Pancakes, and a Perfect Bloody Mary

"This might be my new favorite brunch spot, and that's saying something because brunch is one of my favorite meals of the day," says mollyomormon. She's talking about The Mercantile, a new Hollywood star.

First off, they have a fantastic bloody Mary, one of the best in town, says mollyomormon, "with just enough of a peppery kick and none of that sweetness that you get with commercial mixes."

Gingersnap pancakes are served with vanilla-soaked prunes, mascarpone, and Marcona almonds. All mixed together, a perfect bite, says mollyomormon. Maple-glazed pork belly and southern eggs Benedict are "ridiculously good," says mollyomormon. The Benedict involves tasso ham and crab ragout, mixed with Tabasco Hollandaise. There's also a great selection of charcuterie, cheese, and pastries.
