There are two reasons I recommend Art and Soul: it has a great patio, and you can bring your dog. However, if you want to enjoy a Sunday brunch on their patio while sipping a Bloody Mary, don’t go before 11 am. Our reservations were at 10:30 since my friend needed to catch a flight right after, and we had to sit inside and were sadly denied drinks while we perused the menu.

For $27 dollars you get an appetizer, entree, and dessert, as well as all of the 25 cent mimosas or Bloody Marys you can drink. For an extra $6 you can also get the all-you-can eat raw bar. The friend I went with was very excited about that extra addition but decided against it at the last minute, concerned that that the three courses would already be more than enough food. After seeing how much food was really included in the basic brunch, I’m not sure who could possibly handle the addition of that raw bar special. Continue reading
