Lexington Brass
The team behind Abe & Arthur's turns to seasonal fare with this breakfast-to-dinner American bistro. Seven taps dispense local wines and Sixpoint beers at the glossy black-and-gold bar. Early risers can grab Stumptown coffee and breakfast plates, like eggs Benedict and buttermilk corn pancakes, while evening diners can choose from raw-bar platters, pastas and mains, including roasted chicken with okra stew and a marjoram jus, and steamed mussels and frites. The brass-accented room features a white marble floor, tufted light-brown banquettes and pendant lights.

OKAY THERE ARE CINNAMON ROLL PANCAKES HERE! Pretty standard brunch place, a little overpriced for the quality IMHO - although as Meredith below me said the Bloody Mary options are amazing.

But the real kicker here is these pancakes. Tell me that you don't want to eat that. It was insane. The best parts of a cinnamon roll and the best parts of a pancake. The frosting even tasted like Cinnabon (come on, you know you like it.). AMAZING. WOW.

Lexington Brass has a pretty standard brunch fare but with one lovely curveball—a build your own Bloody Mary menu. The waiter will happily hold your hand through the process and explained the difference between a standard Bloody and the various flavor options. After putting in our orders, we were all a little nervous about a poor combination, but with the fresh quality ingredients it's hard to go wrong. 

The portions were bigger than I'd expected. I got a frittata and the skillet may have contained a dozen eggs. On the whole, great quality and great service in a cute Parisian cafe environment. 


The food is excellent & the cocktails are outstanding. I went to Lexington Brass with a group of 5 people on a Wednesday night, and the atmosphere was lively, but not too loud for conversation. Don't let the 4 dollar sign rating intimidate you... there are options on the menu that won't leave you broke. Highly recommend the Soul Reviver (similar to a margarita but with fresh ginger and green tea), mac & cheese, steak frites, and the smores dessert. Would definitely go back with girlfriends or colleagues.
