Blind Butcher Does Brunch

Brunch at the Blind Butcher? Sold.

The Blind Butcher is a bar and restaurant on Greenville Avenue that I’ve spent embarrassingly little time inside. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t drink a lot or that I don’t eat pork, but every time I think of this place, I think to myself, “Man! I’ve got to get down there.”

Well, if there’s one thing that can reel me in to a restaurant, it’s brunch. So when I heard the Butcher was butchin’ up brunch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, I hit up a Friday lunch/brunch with a friend and we had a lovely time. Here’s a visual tour of our meal.

Since I don’t dig on swine, the Full English Breakfast was a slight bit lost on me. I got about a 2/3 English Breakfast, though, which was plenty of food and plenty delicious. The beans surprised me most; I assumed I wouldn’t care for that particular breakfast element, but I was wrong. They were a delightful addition to the brunch plate. Things we didn’t order but will definitely consider for next time include:

  • Hungover Poutine
  • Daily quiche option
  • Corned beef hash

Yup. Whether you roll up to the Blind Butcher on a Friday (because when eating brunch on Friday is an option you should obviously do it), or wait for the weekend to head over, I say go for it. The place offers up freshly made, honest plates of good food without an ounce of pretense. That’s awesome.
