The best brunches are surprise birthday brunches with your best pals.
Tweet started out as an ordinary Bloody Best brunch adventure and turned into a birthday party of seven plus our adorable baby BFF. Much to one of The Mary’s elation.
We’d heard so many good things about Tweet in Uptown. First, it’s connected to Big Chicks. Second, the menu is mostly organic, local and has a plentiful gluten-free selection.
And the bloody marys came in a tiki glass. What’s not to like, really?
Speaking of best pals, the Signature Bloody Mary is the kind friend you can always rely on. It’s solid, fun and never disappoints. You can definitely call her when shit hits the fan. Or whenever. A mix of tomato juice, BBQ sauce, prickly peppers and others. It’s done right.
The Ecstasy Bloody Mary. Now, we’re not shy about spice. However, this one is so spicy it’s an assault on your tastebuds, made with a combination of poblano, wasabi and sriracha. It was so spicy we couldn’t drink it, and we’re usually up to the challenge. In other words, order the Signature. The Husband ordered a Hot Hot Hot bloody, which was spicy yet drinkable.
Let’s talk about the food. Any place with a breakfast burrito section on the menu is a win in our books. Avocado, cheese, black beans, eggs, salsa. Swoon. One of the Marys ordered the Arepas from the specials, which were unbelievable delicious and hearty. Speaking of, you certainly get your money’s worth at Tweet. You even get a fruit cup as a starter!
The kitschy decor made us feel cozy and at home on a snowy morning. Lots of local art was featured. And of course, the ladies singing.
One thing to note is that Tweet is cash only, so bring your dollar bills when you come. And come you should.
