Icehouse Brunch

I tried brunch at Icehouse this weekend after hearing raves from my sister-in-law. Overall, I was pretty impressed. They had live music playing - we were seated off to the side so it was a perfect combination of music + being able to have a conversation. The had several different bloody mary versions (including one that has bacon and comes garnished with a mini donut). I had the Bloody Lisa which comes with a stick of house pickled vegetables. The drink was good (although it could have been a touch spicier for my preferences) and the veggies were excellent. For breakfast, I had the brisket hash. It was somewhat more of a mashed potato and brisket mix nicely crisped up topped with a chili sauce, creme fraiche and nice and runny poached eggs (they cook the eggs however you want). The combination of all of these was nicely balanced. My friend has the biscuit and gravy with crispy pork and a fried egg. She declared it to be awesome (I did not get to try it, but it looked delicious).

I definitely want to go back and try that (as well as some other menu items). :-)
