Last Sunday turns out picture perfect for sitting outside at a South End brunch spot, especially late-ish (2pm), when the lines are long gone. Rouge does an "All-American brunch", read: Southern US breakfast dishes.
One giant biscuit with sausage gravy (white gravy, crumbled breakfast patties) and fluffy scrambled eggs (how come mine don't come out like this at home?) is very unhealthy and completely delicious, made more so on both counts with a side of slab bacon. Pulled pork sandwich and frites are also heavenly (we love their barbecue here), if more lunch-like.
They're out of sangria, so we opt for hurricanes, which are giant and potent (as one would hope at $8/pop) and authentic tasting. Entrees are $10-12, a good deal for quality and quantity. Friendly service, a credit to any waitperson who has to work this hellish shift. We'll come back for this brunch.
